This review deals with meat products which at least partially owe their microbiological stability and organoleptic properties to a fermentation carried out by lactic acid bacteria. These products are usually made from comminuted meat and fat, mixed with salt, curing agents, sugar and spices, and filled into casings, and are referred to as ‘fermented sausages’.
