Create preservatives thanks to microorganisms, extend the life of your products and generate new aromas and flavors
Beer, cheese, kombucha, kefir, kimchi, wine, coffee and sausages are just some of the most common fermented foods around the world.
Fermentation is the word on everybody’s lips. At LOV ferments, we refer to biological methods of conservation as fermentation. We feed a microorganism to make substances that are harmful for others. In this way we are able to extend the life of a product. Via the generation of new substances we create unique aromas and flavors.
Cheese, beer, miso, kimchi and wine are just a few examples of the creation of alcohol or acids to extend the life of the product. Fermentation has been with us since the beginning of mankind, although how it worked only started to be understood a few hundred years ago. You have to know some basic notions to start fermenting and lose any fear of these ancestral techniques.
