*Some fermented foods like fermented milk contain highconcentrations of probiotics which have health benefits. Some of the beneficial effect of lactic acid bacteria consumption include: (i) improving intestinal tract health;(ii) enhancing the immune system, synthesizing and enhancing the bioavailability of nutrients; (iii) reducing symptoms of lactose intolerance, decreasing the prevalence of allergy in susceptible individuals; and (iv)reducing risk of certain cancers*

Fermentation processes can result in increased levels ofvitamins in the final product. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is able to concentrate large quantities of thiamin, nicotinicacid and biotin and thus form enriched products. Fermentation technology therefore plays important role inthe nutrition.
