Fermentation is responsible for some of the most delicious foods and beverages around, like kefir, yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles, kombucha, sourdough bread, raw milk cheese, miso, and more. Some can be salty, some can be vinegary, others can be funky...these foods are versatile but they're all packed with flavor and probiotics that are crucial to the health of both our digestive and immune systems. Make sure to look for labels that refer to products as live, cultured, active, raw, or probiotic to make sure you're getting all those awesome benefits (for instance, apple cider vinegar "with the mother" contains helpful probiotics, but other varieties might not!).
