Why are fermented foods so special?


Fermentation is the natural process by which friendly yeasts and bacteria metabolise the carbohydrates in food. Nutrients such as enzymes, vitamins and minerals are boosted and become easier to digest and complex flavours are developed. Not only that, but the presence of these live organisms are probiotic and contribute to the diversity of gut bacteria (gut microbiome). This matters because studies now show what tradition has long believed, that gut health has a direct affect on our general health and well-being.

In short, fermented foods are more digestible, more delicious and more nutritious than the raw ingredients they are made form.

I have suggested a recipe with quantities for two people. 750 ml Stock (pork, chicken veg) or water 190 g of Kimchi Kraut (about one pot) 1 Tbsp Peanut butter 200 ml coconut milk or coconut cream 1/2 tsp sugar or honey squeeze of lemon or lime juice 1 tbsp fish sauce (optional) Optionally when hot
