Fermented foods have been popular throughout history, with virtually every culture, country and continent having their own traditionally-made fermented food product.
Translating literally to ‘sour cabbage’, sauerkraut has been popular across Europe throughout history, and was famously taken by explorers including Captain James Cook to help ward off scurvy on long sea voyages. Today it is undergoing something of a modern renaissance, as more people seek to regain control of their health and understand the importance of looking after our guts and immune systems, with probiotic superfoods playing a key role in this persuit.
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.
