fermented vegetables

Vegetable preserves must be acidified to prevent botulinum risk. Usually vinegar or acidity regulators are used (citric acid, lactic acid, acetic acid) which alter the organoleptic characteristics or dirty the label. FOSAN is developing acidification techniques by lactic fermentation that improve the organoleptic and nutritional quality keeping the label clean. We use Lactobacilli (Rhamnosus and Plantarum) and/or microflora extracted from the same vegetables to ferment aubergines, peppers, pumpkins and courgettes and purple potatoes cultivar Vitelotte
