Fermentation is an ancient yet still widely practised bioprocess in food manufacturing and supply. Fermented foods and beverages play a vital part in human nutrition, health, social activities, lifestyle, and modern economy. This Special Issue is to gather the latest information on fermented beverages so as to stimulate and facilitate further research, development, and commercialisation of fermented beverages. Therefore, I invite submissions related to all types of fermented beverages, from alcoholic to non-alcoholic products, from plant-based to animal-derived raw materials, including, but not restricted to, fruits, vegetables, legumes, cereals, honey, milk, and whey. Submissions in relation to substrate biotransformation and metabolite generation, flavour (taste and aroma) and organoleptic attributes, novel fermentation processes/products, indigenous products/processes, microbial impact, health, and functional probiotic beverages are particularly welcome. However, some topics, which may be directly applicable to fermented beverage manufacture, are beyond the scope of this Special Issue, for example, engineering and processing technologies, distillation process and packaging technologies.
