Abstract

Fermented foods and beverages are mainly consumed by the indigenous people of Africa and other developingcountries. Traditional fermentation is an age-long means of preserving perishable foods especially when othermethods of preservation are not available and/or not consistent. The main beneficial microorganisms that areresponsible for the fermentation of African indigenous fermented foods and beverages are lactic acid bacteriaand yeasts which may be present as microflora on the substrates or added as starter cultures. The understandingof the synergistic interaction between these microorganisms in the fermented food matrices result in improvednutrient availability, food quality, palatability, organoleptic properties, increased shelf life, safety, digestibilityand also play beneficial roles in modulating host immune system thereby minimizing the risk of certain diseases
