Special Issue "Health Effects of Fermentation"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 October 2019.
Fermentation is one of the oldest food processing technologies known to humankind. Almost all edible materials are fermented around the world, using different processes and leading to a huge diversity of food products. Fermentation also occurs in the gut, with not digested nutrients as substrates. Most of the works dealing with health effect of fermentation have primarily focused on the modulation of gut microbiome through the action of prebiotic and probiotic. Despite the numerous articles available, most still focus on a description of the actors of fermentation. Fermented foods can also be a source of prebiotics and probiotics, but still, only a limited variety of food has been investigated, thus leading to a failure to find new sources of microorganisms with interesting properties. The health-related functional properties of the microorganisms are less studied, but many other health-related bioactive compounds are produced from fermentation.
This Special Issue of Nutrients entitled “Health Effects of Fermentation” welcomes the submission of manuscripts describing original research or reviews of scientific literature. Linking fermentation and health is needed, dealing with evidence on the effect of functional molecules derived from gut and food fermentation on health.
