What's all the fuss with fermented foods? Fermented foods are foods that have been through a process of lactofermentation in which natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch in the food creating lactic acid. This process preserves the food, and creates beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics.
Sauerkraut is full of probiotics that improve our gut health, and it's not hard to make. Making your own is a great way to ensure the sauerkraut you're eating is fresh, and locally produced. Our sauerkraut instructor will be guiding you through the ins and outs of sauerkraut, and you'll even get to make a jar to take home.
