By Haley Lerner

The latest food trend that has been an essential part of many celebrity diets is fermented food products. Food becomes fermented by letting it sit and steep until the sugars and carbs become bacteria-boosting agents. Carbohydrates are converted to alcohol or organic acids using microorganisms such as yeast or bacteria. Not only does fermentation help to preserve food like vegetables, but it produces food products that aid digestion, support your immune system and improve your skin health and your mood. Fermented foods are a great source of probiotics that provide beneficial bacteria to help improve your gut health. Luckily for you, we have a list of some great fermented food products to include into your diet.
