There are some pickles that are made from fermentation but I don't know how you would find them (probably health food stores). You can also ferment your own cucumbers if your into canning.

Not sure I eat as wholesome as some of you; but I've joined the group to learn more about the topic. I seem to have trouble with dairy. Nothing worked. Blood work didn't show an allergy. A few years ago I began using Accuflora Pro-Biotic Acidophilus whenever I got bloated. It really has helped me. I'll have to watch this topic though, so I can learn more.

Hi:

A great source of vegan probiotics can be found in fermented vegetables. At my natural food store there are a number available: cabbage, daicon, beets, carrots. They are not pickled, but naturally fermented; to retain their benefits, they should not be cooked, as that kills the bacteria (you probably realize that, but just thought I'd mention to be sure). I use these on my salads and in my smoothies. I love the daicon! Carrots are my least favorite. :-P

I have read that you can make these yourself and that it's not difficult, but I haven't tried yet.

Hope this helps!
Good luck,
Cat

I have been hearing more & more about "probiotics" in the media. The latest I heard was that it helps boost your immune system. I know they are the "good bacteria" found in many yogurts & products like kefir. I don't eat a lot of yogurt or drink a lot of kefir. So, I was wondering if anyone knows of any good "vegan" sources for probiotics or do I have to take supplements of some kind?
