Real food – Kimchi, Sauerkraut – that restores your gut flora, delivered to your door.
Why are fermented foods good for us?
Our digestive tract is colonized by trillions of microorganisms. It’s called the Human Microbiome and it functions like a “virtual organ”.
Harboring a diverse gut flora has been linked to lower obesity, fewer autoimmune conditions and digestion problems, longer lifespan, good brain function and happiness. source
Our modern diet, sadly, largely ignores the welfare and wellbeing of our gut bacteria community, a problem that’s made worse by the use of antibiotics and pesticides in the modern production of food.
How fermentation transforms our food
When Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) have a suitable environment they feast on available carbohydrates (sugars, starches and fiber) to produce lactic acid and other metabolic products that enhance taste and bring about additional medicinal properties.
In other words, submerge vegetables in salt water and spices, wait for a few days (or weeks) and get a new stable food colonized by millions of good bacteria and added micronutrients. Not to mention the funky, zingy, flavors that people have been enjoying for thousands of years all over the world.
This is the story of kimchi, sauerkraut, kefir, kombucha and yogurt.
