Fermentation is the transformation of food through enzymes produced by types of microorganisms. The types of microorganisms that we use in fermentation are bacteria, yeasts, and mold. Fermentation is the process by which microorganisms convert sugar into another substance. The word fermentation comes from the Latin word "fervere", that means "to boil". The ancient Romans saw the bubbling of grapes that reminded them of boiling and described the process using an analog of what they saw. Fermentation is a traditional way of preserving foods that have been around for thousands of years. The earliest archaeological evidence of fermentation is 13,000-year-old residues of a beer, with the consistency of gruel, found in a cave near Haifa in Israel. Evidence of fermented foods was found all over the world, from China all the way to Iran, Egypt, and Mexico. Fermented foods benefited humans in the ancient world from in two ways. The first is conservation; the agricultural revolution has created leftovers of food that could have been saved for periods of difficulty in obtaining food. Fermentation was a safe and qualitative way of preserving.
