The fermentation of food and beverages is as old as humanity and the products are consumed in huge quantities around the world. It is an old technique of preserving foods and the fermented food or beverage brings new sensory properties. The health benefits of fermented foods have been exploited commercially and the benefits are well accepted. The development of new analytical techniques in the last two decades have opened new ways of capturing the fermentation process. Despite the availability of modern equipment and methods of analysis, there is a gap in the understanding of several fermentation processes. This special issue will cover a broad range of topics that cover investigations carried out on any fermented food or beverage. Research articles, reviews and short communications for work carried out in chemistry, microbiology, food engineering, new products, nutrition, and sensory properties around the world are welcome. Any focus on the fermenter in chief, yeasts, is desirable and the work could be carried out on Saccharomyces or non-Saccharomyces yeast fermentation. Of course, research of wine production and brewing that is driven by different fermentation systems is acceptable. Submissions that bring new insights into the fermentation of often neglected fermented traditional food and drinks around the world will also be considered.
