Fermentation is a complex system of reactions brought about by microorganisms. It has been harnessed to the benefit of the food industry for centuries. The benefits of consuming fermented foods are well studied and understood and currently are seen as a major industry trend.

Fermentation as a process can impart specific properties to foods and also create unique compounds that can enhance food safety/preservation, taste & texture.

  • Unique flavour
