Abstract: The history of fermented human food is centuries old. The documentation of Indian foods can be traced to a period before 3,000 B.C. The presence of bacteria known as probiotics is behind the enhanced flavor and medicinal properties of fermented foods. An increase in the life style disorders due to the junk food and fast food culture has created problems among the people all over the world and this in turn has led to the increased dependency on wonder drugs and switching over to many probiotic health products. Adoption of a Probiotic culture in a country like India to prevent various diseases rather than seeking cure for them through the production of Probiotic foods at the household level is quite inevitable.
