    Discover the Benefits of Fermentation

    Traditional pickling is an amazing way to turn all kinds of foods (not just cucumbers!) into sour, toothsome, nutritious snacks and toppings. It relies on fermentation to both preserve and transform practically any kind of produce, and is not to be confused with industrial pickling, which lacks its authentic taste, unique texture and irreplaceable nutritional value. In addition to being cheap and delicious, fermented foods :

    • restore the natural balance of your gut flora;

    • stabilize gastric acidity;

    • facilitate nutrient absorption;

    • contribute to intestinal health;

    • are preserved with no loss of nutritional value;

    • stimulate the immune system
