Starting out as an organic food co-op in the early 1980s by a group of parents interested in Steiner principles, biodynamic growing, and ensuring their children grew up eating well, Ceres Organics have grown from strength to strength over the years.
Named for the Roman goddess of the harvest, Ceres, they were the first BioGro certified organic distributor in the country, and are EcoSocial certified too. EcoSocial certification is an initiative that gives assurance of a company’s focus on ethical and social responsibility in the sourcing of its ingredients from around the world.
Finally an awesome Sauerkraut!
Great product, very tasty and delicious, best value sauerkraut available that i have seen. <3
This is pasteurised, so has no probiotic benefits, but is a good pantry filler over winter.
This sauerkraut is lightly pasteurised, so has no probiotic benefits, but it works fine if you just want to add some extra vegetables to your meal or are out of fresh veggies. This sauerkraut can be eaten warm and mixed into soups. Ceres have confirmed to me that this product is lightly pasteurised so that it doesn't need to be refrigerated until after opening, and can therefore be safely kept in the pantry until the use by date, like any other standard product.
For those of you who are new to fermented vegetables and are looking to balance gut bacteria or candida overgrowth, please note that natural 'Probiotic' sauerkraut is always stored in the fridge (even before opening) and has 'RAW' on the labels to indicate that it has not been pasteurised.
This has no probiotics in it. It has been pasteurised.
It tastes pasteurised, and Ceres have confirmed to me that after being fermented in its own juice, this sauerkraut is then lightly pasteurised to remove all probiotics and other bacteria as part of the canning/jarring process. I'm don't know whether the B vitamins and vitamin K created during lacto-fermentation are able to survive pasteurisation.
Do not buy this if you are looking for probiotic raw sauerkraut. You will need to buy that labelled raw from the refrigerator of a speciality shop, or ferment your own.
