By fermentation, food may be made more digestible, nutritious and safer or have better flavour.
The class of fermented food produced in different regions of the world reflect the diet of that region and also the available raw material.

What are the reasons for fermenting foods?(1) Improvement of digestibility: Digestibility, which is measured through different parameters, is generally improved through fermentation.
The enzymes of the fermenting microorganism hydrolyze the complex constituents of the starting material.
(2) Fermentation almost invariably adds flavour to the food: In some cases, the flavour of a partial product is improved directly.
In some other cases, they can be used to make tasty food from different plant product.
(3) To improve the appearance of food: food like Angkak (oriented…
