Food fermentation is essential for human being throughout the history as fermented foods enrich our diets. In particular, lactic acid bacteria play important roles in food fermentation, and they present us with foods in diverse aromas, tastes and textures. These edible microorganisms are found in pickled vegetables, sausages, cheeses, yogurts, sourdough breads, et al. The practice of lactic acid bacteria-based food fermentations happened accidentally at the beginning, but soon spread out for multiple benefits including preservation, safety, nutrition and flavor.
