FAQs & facts
Why is fermentation healthy?
Eating and drinking ferments regularly expands your microbiome(the collection of microbes in your bowl). In addition, the micro-organisms from your ferments pre-digest your food, making the food easier to digest and making nutrients more available for absorption in the human body.
How to start a fermentation process?
By creating an environment where you stimulate the healthy micro-organisms and eliminate the unhealthy ones.
This can be done, for example, by adding salt, shutting off oxygen or not, and the right temperature and humidity.
What are micro-organisms?
Micro-organisms, also called microbes, are extremely small single-celled organisms that occur everywhere in nature. Humans cannot live without microorganisms, but there are both good and bad microbes. Within fermentation we mainly work with bacteria, yeasts and mould.
