Oh Well! Sauerkraut is defined as “the clean, sound product, of characteristic acid flavor, obtained by the full fermentation, chiefly lactic, of properly prepared and shredded cabbage in the presence of not less than 2%, nor more than 3%, of salt”!
BUT…to us it is much more than just this!
We make this from SCRATCH and we LOVE THIS!
While we must admit it may not have the most attractive name, Sauerkraut has slowly but surely worked its way into the mainstream food-consciousness over the past few years — and for good reason! The popular, slightly-sour SUPERFOOD boasts an impressive collection of health benefits, and in fact is one of the MOST NUTRITIOUS cruciferous vegetables available on the market.
Per 100 gram serving, sauerkraut offers approximately 14.7 mg of VITAMIN C, which is equal to 24% of the recommended intake.
Since sauerkraut undergoes a lactic acid fermentation process, it provides a range of PROBIOTIC BACTERIA strains.
According to tests undertaken on commercial sauerkraut samples, there is a wide range of bacterial species present. These “beneficial bacteria” strains include (6);
- Lactobacillus brevis
- Lactobacillus curvatus
- Lactobacillus plantarum
- Lactobacillus sakei
- Lactococcus lactis
- Leuconostoc citreum
- Leuconostoc fallax
- Leuconostoc mesenteroide
For centuries people in Europe with digestive problems and disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome or candida, have been utilized this probiotic loaded superfood to improve their intestinal health.
