Introduction

 

Fermentation has been practiced by cultures around the world for centuries to preserve the harvest and increase the digestibility of fresh foods. During the fermentation process, naturally-occurring microbes convert the sugars and starches in raw foods into lactic acid, acetic acid, carbon dioxide, and sometimes alcohol.
