Fermented foods have been ingeniously processed by human beings using beneficial microorganisms, and they possess unique flavours and nutritional value. Fermented foods have a long history, are widely distributed throughout the world, and constitute an important part of the human diet. With progress and development over time, the health consciousness of consumers worldwide has been increasing. The unique health and wellness effects of fermented foods have become increasingly sought-after, and they have become more and more popular. Especially since the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a growing interest in foods that can boost immunity, improve intestinal flora, regulate blood sugar, blood lipids and other factors that contribute to good human health.
Research on the nutrition and health of fermented foods has long been focused on 1) specific substances (what), i.e., the efficacious ingredients that improve human health; 2) who the main actors are (who), i.e., what the key microorganisms are that influence the production of the efficacious ingredients or influence the human gut flora; 3) how they are regulated (how), i.e., in what way do fermented foods improve human health?
The goal of this Special Issue is to generate new knowledge on the health functions of fermented food.
