Fermented foods. What's the point?

by Amber Fairweather |

Fermentation is an ancient technique of preserving foods. Fermented foods include yogurts, kimchi, cheeses, sauerkraut, kombucha, kerfir, wines and many more.

Fermented foods are rich in probiotics, vitamins, minerals and are associated with a variety of health benefits. After all, majority of our immune system resides in our gut, while most of our feel-good hormone (serotonin) is produced in our gut. Probiotic foods or fermented foods have been shown to support digestion, immunity and a variety of health aspects leading to increased vitality.

During fermentation, beneficial bacteria convert sugars into acids, therefore preserving foods and giving them that natural tartness. This process promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria (probiotics) while inhibiting any unwanted bacteria from growing. To ferment foods, you need to create the optimum environment for probiotics to thrive and multiply which can be easily achieved by using a Symbiota Fermentation Crock or Symbiota Fermentation Kits.
