    In general, fermentation is the process of converting a carbohydrate (such as sugar) into an acid or an alcohol.  Fermentation can also refer specifically to the use of yeast to convert sugar into alcohol or the use of bacteria in foods to generate lactic acid.  Fermentation also occurs naturally in many foods under specific conditions.

    There are a few types of fermentation.  When dealing with food, fermentation is the process of turning carbohydrates into alcohol and carbon dioxide.  This is done by yeasts and bacteria.  There is also chemical fermentation which obtains energy from the oxidation of organic compounds as the carbohydrates break down.
