Fermentation increases the nutrient density of healthy food by providing beneficial probiotics, enzymes, B vitamins, and the rare and important nutrient known as vitamin K2. Fermenting often improves digestion and nutrient absorption.
Popular fermented foods include sauerkraut, pickles, yogurt, cheeses, sour dough bread, kombucha, beer and wine. Fermented foods have recently disappeared from the Standard America Diet but they are making a comeback thanks to their health boosting properties. Most grocery stores now carry at least one type of kombucha.
