Overviews food spoilage microorganisms such as mold that can ruin stored food. Explains other bacteria and yeasts are vital to the production of food and drinks like yogurt and bread, along with beer and wine.

    Our unit of study was how microbes can help and/or harm the body depending on the processing steps. This video was very interesting and assisted my hearing impaired student and my low functioning readers.
