    • 2. What is Fermentation? Fermentation is a metabolic process that can produce ATP by way of glycolysis without the use of oxygen. Fermentation occurs in the cytoplasm of cells. It occurs in some yeast fungi, some bacteria, and some seeds.
    • 3. What is Fermentation? The concept of fermentation is more commonly known as 'ferment' among humans. Fermentation has many sub-branches in itself. The names of these sub-branches are alcohol fermentation, lactic acid fermentation, butyric acid fermentation and citric acid fermentation.
    • 4. What is Fermentation? French chemist Louis Pasteur discovered the fermentation event in 1857 watching live yeast cells. Nowadays fermentation of the dough, vinegar from grape juice, etc. The events are performed by fermentation.
    • 5. Importance Of Fermentation Importance Of Fermentation Fermentation is most commonly used to prolong shelf life, prevent spoilage and produce alcohol. Fermentation produces the energy for the microorganism or cell while the sugar is converted to alcohol without oxygen.
    • 6. Fermentation Types Alcohol Fermentation It occurs in non-oxygen-free organisms. This type of fermentation is used in alcohol production. Alcohol production is through yeasts. In this type of fermentation, the glucose molecule is broken convert into pyruvate in a short time. As a result of all these events, hydrogen gas is formed.
    • 7. Fermentation Types Lactic Acid Fermentation It is a type of fermentation that occurs in bacteria and some animal cells. Yogurt, cheese, various pickles etc. It is produced using lactic acid bacteria. Lactic acid fermentation occurs in human muscles. The oxygen needed for lactic acid is taken from the blood.
    • 8. Fermentation Types Butyric Acid Fermentation This type of fermentation is carried out by acidogenic bacteria. Such fermentation reactions are not common. This reaction results in butyric acetate, carbon dioxide and H2.
    • 9. Fermentation Types Citric Acid Fermentation The citric acid fermentation is a glycolysis. With EMP, sugar becomes pyruvic acid. Acetic acid (CoA) is bound by enzymes with to form acetyl. Hydrogen produced by this reaction is protected by NAD to produce NADH2.
    • 10. What is Fermented? Fermenting is a chemical decay of a substance through bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms, usually by giving heat and foaming. Fermentation is a biochemical process that provides energy production in the absence of anaerobic oxygen.
    • 11. What are Fermented Products? What are Fermented Products? Fermented milk products; Cheese, Yoghurt, Butter Fermented meat products; Sausage Fermented vegetable foods; Pickled, olives Fermented alcoholic beverages; Beer, Wine Other fermented products; Bread, Vinegar, Soy Sauce
