About the book

Fermented foods and beverages go through a process in which yeasts and bacteria feed on its sugars and starches. Fermentation makes food and beverages last longer without the need for chemicals, and gives it a characteristic flavor, promotes intestinal health, help digestion and strengthen the immune system.

The book "Fermentation" intends to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art and different perspectives regarding the most recent knowledge related to this process. This book shows contributions, articles and reviews focused on the recent studies on (i) Fermentation of food and beverages, (ii) Chemical and microbiological fermentation processes, (iii) Sensory characteristics and (iv) Health safety.

Chapters provide up-to-date reviews, overviews, and summaries of current research on the different dimensions of the mentioned topics. This book is not only intended for technicians actively engaged in the field but also for students attending technical schools and/or universities and other professionals (biochemical engineers, microbiologists, industrial biotechnologists, combinatorial chemists, enologists, enzyme technologists, food processors, etc.). This book brings together experimental, theoretical, and computational results.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nera Butigan

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors, and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing or reviewing. I assist authors in preparing their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines to ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
