Applications of Biotechnology to Fermented FoodsNational Center for Biotechnology
| NA Pages
This book reports on current research to improve the safety and
nutrition of these foods through an elucidation of the microorganisms and
mechanisms involved in their production. Also included are recommendations for
needed research. In developing countries, traditional fermentation serves many
purposes. It can improve the taste of an otherwise bland food, enhance the
digestibility of a food that is difficult to assimilate, preserve food from
degradation by noxious organisms, and increase nutritional value through the
synthesis of essential amino acids and vitamins.

New procedures involving direct gene insertion and
manipulation allow for much more rapid selection of desirable traits than older
procedures. These new procedures will be described (Chapter 2) and discussed
with reference to possible concerns related to the production of medical
products (Chapter 3), food safety (Chapter 4), environmental issues (Chapter 5),
and animal welfare (Chapter 6).
