A blend of fermented veggies
This tasty lacto-fermented food can be enjoyed as a snack, a side dish with any meal, or can be utilized as a tangy condiment.
Our sauerkraut is not pasteurized, so all of the beneficial microorganisms that facilitate fermentation are alive and well, and thus, able to provide medicinal and health benefits. These live cultures help to promote healthy digestion, improve the body’s ability to process nutrients in food, and help to control digestive diseases that can cause other problems, like diarrhea. The microorganisms in fermented foods also help to protect the body against illness by competing with dangerous organisms that could make us sick.
Sandor Katz, author of Wild Fermentation and The Art of Fermentation, states, “Eating fermented foods live is an incredibly healthy practice, directly supplying your digestive tract with living cultures essential to breaking down food and assimilating nutrients.”
While we like to add other veggies & spices to our krauts for additional health benefits and improved flavor, nearly all of our combinations contain red or white cabbage (or both). Cabbage is an old vegetable that has been a valuable food and medicine to many cultures in history. According to Greek mythology, cabbage was originally created from Zeus’ perspiration. Greeks gave it to pregnant women shortly before they gave birth, believing that it would help promote a good supply of breast milk. The Romans used cabbage to help prevent alcohol intoxication and hangover. They also used the leaves to help cleanse infected wounds. It is a beneficial edible due to its rich vitamins A, B1, B2, and C content. It also is helpful for aiding digestion and helping to break down toxins in the liver.
