Sauerkraut Lactic Acid Fermentation
“Sauerkraut is a wonderful healing remedy for the digestive tract, full of digestive enzymes, probiotic bacteria,
vitamins and minerals”. (Dr Natasha Campbell – Mc Bride)
Natural Lactic Acid Fermentation is one of the oldest and healthiest means of food preservation however the benefits of fermented vegetables and fruits go beyond the advantage of preservation.
Sauerkraut is notorious for its numerous health benefits and has been highly regarded for it’s reputation as a Super Food.
Loaded with vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and beneficial bacteria that strengthen digestive power, sauerkraut is both a nourishing food and a potent nutritional medicine. Naturally produced by lactic acid fermentation, sauerkraut has a long tradition of use in cultures around the world.
Sauerkraut is a staple food in the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride and is highly promoted by Sally Fallon, author of a Nourishing Traditions.
Sauerkraut is made through a lactic-acid fermentation process. Lactic – acid is a natural preservative that inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria. Sugars and starch carbohydrates in vegetables and fruits are consumed and converted into lactic acid by a variety of lactic acid species. Lactobacillus plantarum is one of the natural occurring lactic acid producing bacteria that have been used for centuries as a preservative. It produces high acidity in all vegetable fermentations and plays a major role in the healing of the digestive tract.
The living beneficial bacteria in sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables and fruit, enhance digestibility and increase vitamin content. They furnish the body with many beneficial enzymes, probiotics and anti-carcinogens. Consuming live fermented foods on a regular basis helps to balance the inner terrain of the intestinal tract to allow for the repopulation of good gut flora which contain far more beneficial bacteria that supplements can alone.

Nursing mothers of colicky babies have gotten relief from many sleepless nights from consuming fermented vegetables. Colicky bottle fed babies can be fed tiny (progressive) spoonful’s of sauerkraut juice. This introduces some friendly bacteria for bottle fed babies who are not receiving beneficial bacteria from their mothers breast milk.
