Fermented Foods Guidance

The British Columbia (Canada) Centre for Disease Control have published a useful guide to fermented foods, including food safety control measures.

Each fermented food review includes: 

  • background on the food,
  • a description of the food preparation, 
  • a food flow chart, 
  • a review of the potential issues with the food preparation, and 
  • food safety control points.

A national working group of health inspectors, food safety specialists, and industry fermentation experts worked together to create guidance on fermented foods.

You can review and download the guidance here.
