3 Delicious Fermented Foods You Can Make at Home


| 3/7/2017 3:57:00 PM


Loaded with essential nutrients and probiotics, fermented foods are an effective way to boost healthy gut bacteria, immune function and much more. Fermentation has been around for centuries, and it remains one of the best ways to keep fresh, crisp vegetables in our diet during the winter months. Although spring is right around the corner, these easy-to-make ferments can be made all year long to help reduce food waste and, hopefully, your household budget (bye-bye expensive supplements!).

Kombucha

The exact origin of this fermented tea beverage is unknown, but it makes a great substitution for sugary sodas and juices. Although this ferment is made with sugar, the final product contains a minimal amount since the sugar becomes food for the live culture (SCOBY). At this time, little research has been conducted to prove the health benefits of kombucha, but many believe it has immune-boosting properties.

Sauerkraut

Research has shown that, when fermented, cabbage contains strains of antifungal compounds that fight vaginal and intestinal infections of Candida fungi. Other studies suggest that the probiotics found in sauerkraut may increase the effects of antioxidants, protect against breast cancer, and combat Salmonella and Shigellaharmful bacteria that can cause food poisoning, diarrhea and stomach cramps.
