What's Hot ... Fermentation

From sauerkraut to kombucha, miso to vinegar, the world of fermented food is rich and varied and becoming increasingly popular. At its simplest, fermentation occurs when a yeast or bacteria converts sugar into an acid. It’s a completely natural process that humans have been manipulating for thousands of years to preserve food and add flavour, but it also offers a host of health benefits linked to digestive health. The live bacteria contained in fermented products help to restore the proper balance of bacteria in the gut helping the digestive system to run more smoothly, they’re also rich in enzymes, vitamins and nutrients.

If your customers start their day with tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, have a pickle or two with their sandwich or salad for lunch, a bottle of kombucha in the afternoon, and some sauerkraut with dinner, they’ll be making the most of their digestive health in no time! See below for our top picks.
