What is the primary role of microorganisms in food production?

Some microbes are responsible for food spoilage, whereas others are used to increase the flavoring of the food or to produce the food product itself, or help improve its physical and/or chemical characteristics.

Close window

In the production of red wine, the starter cultures are made up of yeasts rather than bacteria (like in cheese production). In both cases, the microbes are used for their fermentation capabilities and the production of the final product.

What fermentation occurs in the production of red wine?
What fermentation occurs in the production of cheese?

The bacteria produce acids as a metabolic by-product that give the cheese its characteristic flavor and aroma, whereas the yeasts produce alcohols that give the wine its characteristic flavor and aroma.
