Fermentation is a natural metabolic process that has been used to produce foodstuffs and beverages for thousands of years, in which an organism converts carbohydrate into alcohol and/or acid. During fermentation, yeast produces a range of flavoring compounds that can be utilized to create fermented foods and beverages, such as wine, beer, yoghurt, miso, kimchi, etc. Nowadays, to improve the aroma and flavor of fermented products, experiments with different recipes and industrial quality-control parameters need to be carried out and recorded in various formats, including numerical, categorical, machine readable, and human language. The large amount of experimental data can be utilized as input data for machine learning algorithms to suggest the optimal quality-control setups. Reviews of the final products can be analyzed through computational models to understand the key components that form the quality products.
This Special Issue aims to discover how computers can help us develop high-quality rudimentary fermented products.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Fermentation is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
