As you eat a sandwich with cheese and drink a glass of milk, did you ever think that there are organisms that live in these foods? From the yeast that makes the bread dough rise to the mold that can spoil a loaf and the bacteria that makes yogurt healthy for our bodies to the fungi that helps make cheese, various organisms are integral to the foods we eat and drink every day. In Your Food shows how these microscopic critters eat the same foods we do, and what effects they can have on the fruits, veggies, and other foods in our diet.
