The aim of the study was to isolate and identify the yeast isolated from Dangke and its potential as probiotics. The purified isolates obtained were identified based on observations of macroscopic characteristics of colonies and microscopic cells. The ability as a probiotic yeast is obtained by testing the resistance towards acid conditions, bile salt resistance test and aggregation ability test against pathogenic bacteria using Salmonella sp. The yeast isolates were identified using the RapID Yeast Plus System. The isolation result was obtained D.10.3.d isolate that identified as Candida guilliermondii which showed probiotic characteristic. The yeast colony is round, cream‑colored, smooth surfaces, low convex elevations and entire edges, capable of growing on mediums with the pH of 4, containing 1 % and 5 % of bile salts and having the ability to aggregate Salmonella sp. at 15, 60, and 180 minutes.
