Why Ferment?
Historically the fermentation technique was used as a way of preserving foods and drinks long before the days of refrigeration. During the process, microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast or fungi convert organic compounds - such as sugars and starch - into alcohol or acids which act as natural preservatives. The process produces quite a distinctive, strong, slightly sour flavours.

With the ever-increasing link between the health of the gut and overall health of the individual the consumption of foods and drinks that have undergone fermentation have benefits that stretch beyond food preservation. If optimising your diet and your health is something that interests you then fermented foods may be a missing piece of the puzzle.
