RAW ORGANIC SAUERKRAUT
A few words about the product
A wonderful superfood!
Consumers have a great tendency in recent years to enrich their diet with foods produced through the natural process of fermentation. The main reason is that because of everyday stressful experiences, the balance of the digestive system is greatly affected, which as it is widely known, is one of the most important systems of the human body and its poor functioning can lead to a number of diseases. Irritable bowel or other gastrointestinal problems such as bloating, flatulence, gas and constipation are just a few of the problems a large part of the population is facing now todays, leading them to find natural ways of coping and alleviating these symptoms. Raw foods of natural fermentation, according to many studies, can help restore the balance of the digestive system. Such are raw sauerkraut, "live" yogurt, kefir, and kombucha.
Raw sauerkraut is the ultimate source of probiotics, and is also rich in fiber, carbohydrates, calcium, vitamins A, C and K, iron, folic acid, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. According to studies, it helps fight inflammation and restore normal intestinal function, contributes to the digestive process and maintains a healthy intestinal flora. Raw sauerkraut is more digestible than raw cabbage and can reduce digestive symptoms such as bloating and gas, while having antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Raw sauerkraut "matures" in its own fermented juices and is preserved with all its enzymes, vitamins and beneficial bacteria without losing any of them through a thermal process. It can also help with certain digestive disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). A study by the University of Copenhagen found that patients with IBS who added fermented cabbage to their diet noticed reduction in symptoms. A study published in the World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology also found that it can help to lower cholesterol in normal levels. In addition it can work preventively for diseases such as bladder disorders and strengthen bones, as it is rich in vitamin K.
Lagadas Farm Fresh Organic Sauerkraut:
Raw Organic Sauerkraut by Lagadas Farm may only need organic cabbage and salt to be produced, but the natural fermentation process, in which the cabbage carbohydrates are converted to lactic acid in order to produce probiotics, is a difficult and time consuming process. Factors such as salinity, temperature and pH should be checked daily for about 4 weeks to ensure the perfect result. In the same time the process of continuously feeding the market is just as difficult, as there must be constantly fresh product available. In addition the product continues to ferment in all stages from the premises at the points of sale until it reaches the consumer's plate, reacting and being a living food.
Remember! To have all the probiotics and nutrients of this wonderful superfood unchanged, check the packaging and look for words like: Raw unpasteurized, without vinegar or sugar and refrigerated sauerkraut.
Instructions when buying
Raw unpasteurized sauerkraut is a LIVE-ACTIVE food! So when opening the jar, in some cases you may notice an overflow of liquid or release of fermentation gases (bubbles) or in several cases both. This fact is completely natural and in fact is an indication that the sauerkraut is active that it is still fermenting, still breathing. If enough liquids are lost, simply push the product below the liquid level.
