So, what is fermento lácticos?

Fermento lácticos, also known as lactic acid bacteria, are a group of microorganisms commonly used in food fermentation. These bacteria convert lactose and other sugars into lactic acid, which helps preserve and flavor various types of food products, such as cheese, yogurt, sauerkraut, and sourdough bread. Fermento lácticos can also produce antimicrobial compounds and enzymes that improve the texture and nutritional value of food. Additionally, they have been associated with several health benefits, including improved digestion, immune function, and cholesterol levels. Overall, fermento lácticos play a vital role in the production of many fermented foods and offer a range of potential health benefits for consumers.
