Fermentation is a processing technique that involves the use of microorganisms, including yeast and bacteria, to break down organic carbohydrates and convert them into alcohol or acids. Even if you're unfamiliar with this processing technique, however, you've probably consumed a fermented food or beverage before.
Yogurt is one of the most popular types of fermented foods. Derived from dairy, it's prepared with added bacteria, which is essential to the fermentation process.

You may be hesitant to eat yogurt after reading this, believing that the added bacteria will make you ill. However, the bacteria used in fermentation is completely safe for consumption.
In fact, it's actually beneficial. You see, only "good" bacteria are added to foods and beverages during the fermentation process.
Known as probiotics, these good bacteria assist the digestive system in breaking down waste, thereby reducing the risk of digestive disorders.
Fermented foods and beverages are available at nearly all grocery stores and supermarkets. Some consumers even make them at home using basic ingredients.
Regardless, as the benefits of fermented foods and beverages become common knowledge, it's safe to assume that more people will include them in their diet.
