Take this as a stand alone course or as Module 2 of the Professional Certificate, Diploma or Advanced Degree Program. This course can also be taken with a 90 minute private tutoring session with one of our expert lecturers at Plant Based Academy. This comprehensive online certificate course will help you understand the importance of fermented foods and microbial diversity for optimal health and longevity. Created by fermentation experts with years of research and culinary practise. This course is a deep dive into fermentation science in theory and in culinary practise including in-depth lessons on microbes, microbiota, microbial diversity, mitochondria health, gut brain axis, probiotics, prebiotics and psychobiotics. The courses is an exciting blend of microbiology and fermentation as a culinary art.

This is the most comprehensive fermentation course as a stand alone course and as part of our certificate, diploma and degree program. This Fermentation online certification course is deep dive into all the concepts of fermenting and the methods in which it functions. Fermentation scientists are food scientists who apply their knowledge of microorganisms to the processing of goods ranging from kombucha to vegan yogurt to seed cheeses and miso. Fermentation scientists are food scientists who study microorganisms in the fermentation process and how they relate to food and medicines. Fermentation refers to complex biochemical processes which can be applied to large number of ingredients to develop powerful superfoods as part of a culinary medicinal program. This program is completely online with well structured lessons on cell biology, biochemistry, metabolism, microbiology and nutritional science with a focus on the role of fermented foods in promoting health, microbial health and preventing disease. The program culminates in a research project and practical culinary assignment with a written report. The program provides background experience for those interested in careers in the health industry settings, provides advanced training in fermentation and microbiome health for physicians and other health professionals who want to apply this in their practice, is a stepping stone to pursue our Certificate, Diploma or Advanced Degree, trains health educators who want to promote health and prevent lifestyle diseases.
