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.

Kombucha Goes Green (Pink actually)

We've added a new flavour to our Kombucha range - Gunpowder Green tea with Hibiscus and ginger. No it's not green but a beautiful pink colour - from the Hibiscus - with a warming tingle of ginger. If we were writing wine tasting notes then it would probably says something about the floral notes with an almost fragrant nose and a warming ginger on the palate. A slight sweetness from the residual sugars makes this Kombuchas a winner with our customers.

Black Pudding Lovers Delight

Black pudding and Sauerkraut is a winning match, these delicious patties are served with a fried or poached egg for brunchtime perfection. Ideally on a slice or two of buttered sourdough bread. Black pudding is one of the most polarising ingredients out there. Those suspicious of its blood content, studs of fat and strong flavour won’t touch it with a bargepole. However, others love a few tasty slices of it on their breakfast. We can sympathise with both sides of the debate. There's no doubt the sharper slightly acidic profile works wonders with black pudding so if you are a meat eater try this simple but delicious combination.
