The Health Benefits of Sauerkraut and How To Make It

We have been preserving food for a very long time. Fermenting not only keeps food edible for long periods but also infuses it with healthy bacterial flora. This flora plays a crucial role in our digestion. And, here's why: Excessive antibiotic use is widespread in Western medicine. It’s also commonplace in conventionally raised livestock animals. As a result, many Americans suffer from imbalances in digestive flora, which can cause health problems. Fermented foods make up as much as 40 per cent of some diets around the world. The probiotic cultures make foods more digestible as they help to break down tough proteins like meat. Having a healthy balance of intestinal flora can prevent and even reverse digestive issues. While many fermented foods are available at the supermarket, you can also make your own at a fraction of the cost. In this episode, we show you how to make a tasty sauerkraut recipe from fresh cabbage, carrot and ginger.
