Fermentation became an important part of many cultures and celebrations. Overtime humans started to see the many health benefits of it as well. Once scientists started studying the fermentation process, they learned that all the magic came from the microorganism. Produced by the process themselves, these bacteria synthesize vitamins and minerals and change the chemistry and taste of the food. Famous fermented foods include Yoghurt, which was first made by accident in Turkey when milk was stored in a container mixed with leftover bacteria, solidifying into what we know as Yoghurt.
