Microbial cultures

Microorganisms are the earliest form of life on earth, first evolving more than three billion years ago. Microorganisms are living organisms invisible to the naked eye. They remain extremely abundant today, and three forms of microorganisms in particular are used in food production: bacteria, yeasts, moulds.

Overall, they are indispensible to the balance of the biosphere by participating in the elementary cycles of nature.
