Beer is also fermented!

One of the most familiar fermented food in the world, maybe!

Well, actually almost all alcohol drinks are fermented because alcohol is made in fermenting process.

In a case of beer, east fungus made the sparking taste and alcohol by sugar which included in wheat.

I don’t like the bitter taste of it, but bitter taste somehow helps to increase the good taste of other food, isn’t it?

It is said that alcohol and sparkling actually stimulate the appetite!

Some people say that they got weight because of beer, but the reason would not only beer, but also the effect of stimulating appetite?

Stimulating appetite and getting weight without notice… woo! little horror!!

One of the coolest story for Summer, isn’t it? đŸ˜‰

Test makes me exhausted.

At this day, while doing economic exercises again and again, my thought was gradually caught up by a dangerous idea:

Vinegar!

su

Vinegar is one of the most basic condiment and used in many places.

And, at the same time, the vinegar is fermented food! wow!! :0

Vinegar is very similar to Liquors!

When the acetic acid bacteria get in the liquors, they eat alcohol and make acetic acid, and then vinegar is ready!

Vinegar actually means “sower wine” in French!

Might be made from the mistake in liquor making. lol

Vinegar is effective for summer heat fatigue and helps recovery from exhaustion.

Also has a bactericidal effect, and so helpful for prevention of food poisoning!

Bactericidal effect is also effective to improve the smell of mouth!

Now is the time to eat pickles!!!
