The main types of fermented ingredients are amino acids, organic acids, polymers, vitamins, industrial enzymes, antibiotics.Amino acids are made by fermenting ingredients with microorganisms like probiotic bacteria and these microorganisms turn the ingredients into food and other substances including amino acids.
