FERMENTED PRODUCTS

Naturally Fermented

All of our fermented products are raw and alive, they are fermented the "old fashion" way without using vinegar to maximize the amount of probiotics and enzymes within the product. Being that they are alive, they need to be kept refrigerated and all of our products are stored in a commercial fridge to ensure they are kept at the correct temperature before getting into your hands. 

What's the difference between our fermented products and the others you would find at your local Supermarket?

To start, our products are 100% natural, handcrafted, handpicked, using simple non GMO ingredients. Absolutely no preservatives, filler or water ever added. The majority of products you would find at the supermarket are pasteurized which means they are cooked and are filled with preservatives, this drastically reduces the amount of probiotics and enzymes within the product. We have very high standards and keep you (our customer) top of mind, along with ensuring our products are sustainable for the environment.

My jar "exploded" once opened! Is it still safe to eat?

All of our fermented products are hand packed and are raw & alive (unpasteurized) , which means they continue to actively ferment inside the jar. Sometimes, you may open one of our fermented products and no reaction will occur. Other times, they may pop and overflow, similarly to a bottle of champagne. Either way, it's definitely still safe to eat!

Refrigerated Controls fermentation.

If you leave one of our fermented products at room temperature, it accelerates the fermentation process, while refrigeration slows the fermentation, which is why it needs to be refrigerated once jarred. 

Eat Your Daily Probiotics!

Foods that are rich in probiotics contain beneficial bacteria that aid in maintaining the balance of microorganisms in our body’s intestinal tract and promote a healthy digestive system. Our fermented products produce lactic acid (Lactobacillus) which helps your digestion.
