Fermented vegetables and foods are a central part of Ann Wigmore's living foods diet program. Store bought pickeld vegetables and sauerkraut have been pasteurized and lack the beneficial probiotics so essential to digestive health. Making your own saeurkraut and fermented vegetables using ancient fermentation techniques is fun, delicious and healthy. Fermented vegetables like sauerkraut are recognized as some of the healthiest foods and are high in vitamins (especialy Vitamin C, and the B Vitamins and enzymes. Most importantly, real fermented vegetables provide beneficial digestive bacteria. Adding fermented vegetables to your diet can improve digestive health by bringing balance to intestinal flora.
