People have been eating fermented foods for centuries in all over the world. How are they made you ask? Fermented foods are made when bacteria transforms the sugars and starches in foods into bacteria called probiotics. These helpful microbes break down the sugars and starches in our food, releasing beneficial nutrients like B vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals (all very important for health) that our bodies can easily absorb. Biology is pretty amazing stuff isn't it!?!?
