Fermented foods are foods that have been through a process of lactofermentation, and unlike the name suggest, it has nothing to do with the lactose found in dairy. Rather it pertains to the process of lactic acid fermentation in which microbes such as lactobacillus are used to produce foods such as sauerkraut and yoghurt. Fermented foods are filled with probiotics and prebiotics, which are good bacteria for your gut and the food that they eat. These good bacteria are essential for optimum digestive health and overall health and vitality. They reduce bloating, aid in efficient digestions, encourage daily detoxification processes of the body and leave you with glowing skin.
