Fermented Foods

why should we eat fermented foods?

Fermented foods have been through a natural process called lacto-fermentation in which natural bacteria feed on the natural sugars in the food creating lactic acid.


Eating fermented foods will introduce beneficial bacteria into our digestive system and help the balance of bacteria and acids. The right balance is very important for our health. Probiotics also break the food down to a more digestible form and have been shown to help slow down or reverse some diseases, improve bowel health, aid digestion and improve immunity! Because the gut is the largest component of our immune system, eating friendly bacteria keeps illness away. Gut health could affect inflammation, allergies and autoimmune disorders.


Having the proper balance of gut bacteria and enough enzymes helps us absorb more of the nutrients in the foods we eat. Lacto-fermentation enhances the nutritive value of food and many enzymes and probiotics are created.

For example Sauerkraut is even more nutritious than the original cabbage because it has gone through the lacto-fermentation process.


lacto-fermentation is a natural way to preserve foods and store these foods for longer periods of time without loosing nutrients. St. Jacobs Foods captures those nutrients by vacuum sealing it in bags. Not by heating and canning where those nutrients are lost.
