Learn how to make your own fizzy herbal sodas while talking about the science behind them and why they are good for you.

Fermentation is one of the oldest food processing methods still used today. Scientifically known as zymology, it converts carbohydrates into alcohols, carbon dioxide, yeast, or bacteria. Beer, miso, sourdough, kefir, kimchi, and many other delicious foods we love are the product of fermentation. Discover the basic science behind how to ferment for beverages.
