The age-old practice of food fermentation is enjoying a well-earned renaissance. As knowledge around the importance of our gut microbiota has grown, so too has the evidence that fermented foods can help support a healthy gastrointestinal tract, boost the immune system and even improve mood. This is due to both the probiotic microbes they contain, and the enhanced nutritional value of fermented foods themselves.

In this comprehensive guide, fermentation specialist Caroline Gilmartin delves into the processes and mechanisms involved in both wild and cultured fermentation, examining the microbes involved, parameters for optimal fermentation and what happens if you alter them.

Topics covered include:

  • The importance of the microbiota
  • Gut health
  • Milk and water kefir
  • Yoghurt
  • Kombucha
  • Vegetable fermentations
  • Safety measures and troubleshooting

Also included are appetizing recipes and suggested flavour combinations.
