I'm sure we've all read through the article suggesting an increase in the amount of foods we eat containing "Good Gut" Bacteria. My question based on the reading is this:
If I were to buy sauerkraut, is it fermented and beneficial?
This is based on the distinction made in the article when the author writes, "fermented pickles" as a great food choice. I suppose I thought that the act of picking •suggests• fermentation. This leads me to think that maybe not all store bought saurkraut is fermented. Otherwise, in the example I provide above wouldn't the author just write "pickles," instead of specifying "fermented pickles?"
Returning to my original question, Should I be looking for "fermented" sauerkraut? Should I be striving to make it myself? Thoughts and suggestions would be great.
