Fermented beverages are produced worldwide using different microorganisms as well manufacturing techniques and raw materials. However, there is only one main fermentation process, i.e., alcoholic fermentation, and three related bioprocesses commonly known as lactic acid, acetic acid, and alkaline fermentation. A proper interaction between microorganisms and fermented beverages results in desirable flavor and physical characteristics in the final products. Fermented beverages may adversely become contaminated with pathogens or microbial toxins and thereby transform into vehicles that can transmit diseases to the consumers. Moreover, many microorganisms can deteriorate the physical and chemical properties as well as the flavor of the final products.
The Special Issue “Fermentation Process and Microbial Safety of Beverages” will collect high-quality original research papers, reviews, and commentaries on:
i) fermentation ecology of yeast, bacteria, fungi, and viruses and their interactions and dynamics
ii) advances in research and technology to prevent fermented beverages’ microbial spoilage during fermentation, ageing, and storage
iii) methods to enhance the flavor, taste, nutritive value, and microbiological safety of the final products
iv) methods to prevent the formation of toxins (such as mycotoxins, biogenic amines, ecc)
v) new detection methods to identify toxins in fermented beverages.
