Sauerkraut is a shredded fresh cabbage that has been fermented by various lactic acid bacteria, including Leuconostoc, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus. It has a natural sour flavor which result from the lactic acid that forms when the bacteria ferments the sugars in the cabbage. (no added vinegar!)
Our Japanese Sauerkraut is a spin of our original sauerkraut with added Japanese flavors with white sesame seeds, Kombu (kelp), and fresh shiso leaves.
- Unpasteurized which makes it rich in natural digestive enzymes and living probiotics - highly recommended for people who need to nourish their gut
- Rich in minerals including copper, manganese, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, iron, zinc, molybdenum, and selenium
- Kombu contains iodine, which helps prevent cancer and goiter; when combined with shiso leaves, it helps people recover from anxiety and short temper, and prevents blood vessel hardening
HOW WE MAKE IT
We make it the traditional way. Shred the fresh cabbage and massage it with Himalayan Crystal Salt and ferment it in a jar for 3 days. After the first fermentation, we let it further ferment in low temperature until its fully fermented and ready to be consumed.
- To be served as a condiment with other foods. Sauerkraut especially goes well with food with high fat content such as meat or nuts and seeds. We recommend to eat with a slice of sourdough bread and a slab of almond butter topped with our Living Sauerkraut.
