Abstract: Traditional fermented food is increasingly favored by consumers because of its unique flavor and high nutrition.However, the traditional fermented food is usually produced by manual way with natural inoculation resulted in poor stability, low production efficiency and uncontrollable food safety.Therefore, we put forward a novel fermented technology -“Ecological fermentation technology”.Ecological fermentation technology is composed of three major technologies:microbiota deconstruction technology (upstream), core function microbiota recombination technology (middle) and fermentation process control technology (downstream).Ecological fermentation technology is expected to realize the high quality, high efficiency and high safety production of traditional fermented food.This review mainly expounds the necessity, content and future development of establishing ecological fermentation technology.
