There are more probiotics in a spoonful of live cultured wild fermented kraut / Kimchi than there is in a whole bottle of probiotic pills.
Our krauts and kimchi are wild fermented for optimum flavour and nutrition.
There are 3 ways to create fermented krauts and kimchi and they are as follows….
1: Ferment then pasteurise for a shelf stable product. This gives ok flavour but a soft texture and zero health benefits.
2: Ferment with industrial lab cultures then keep raw. This creates a lovely crunchy texture and some live cultures but not too many strains and a narrow flavour profile.
3: Wild ferment with only the already present naturally occurring soil microbes and then keep raw and live cultured no pasteurisation. This is what we do and it gives the most varieties of probiotics by a long shot, the best complex flavours and a delightfully crunchy texture. Wild fermented = The best of all worlds, flavour, texture and health benefits.
Another great benefit of eating our wild fermented krauts and Kimchi is you also get the prebiotics.
Prebiotics are the indigestible fibres in the veggies that the probiotics eat. Giving the good microbes the foods they like to eat such as the prebiotics in the veggies, helps the beneficial probiotics to stay in your gut and colonise your microbiome for optimum health and a balanced happy gut.
