Did you know that fermentation increases the vitamins naturally present in the food you eat? Or that bread leavened through sourdough fermentation is richer in folate than regular whole wheat bread? Or that fermented foods are rich in vitamin K2 – a known cancer fighter? Fermented foods are essential to health – and lacking in most modern diets. The simple act of fermentation increases the vitamins and food enzymes found in dairy products, grains, legumes, vegetables and fruits – increasing both nourishment and flavor. Fermented foods are also rich in probiotics – beneficial bacteria that build immunity, improve digestion and keep you healthy. Fermentation also decreases the sugar content of foods which is great for those watching their carbohydrate intake.
