Microbes have been for making food since ancient times. Without the activities of microbes there would be no bread, no cheese, no beer, no wine and no chocolate.
Microbes also help us to digest our food.
Sometimes, microbes compete with us for our food. They are feeding on the crop plants that we grow as food – on cereals, fruits and trees. Microbes Eat My Food puts a spotlight on these plant pathogenic microbes and the influence they have on our diet and lifestyle.
