Are all of your ferments Vegan?
Absolutely! We make all of our ferments with veggies, herbs, salt, and spring water. Nothing else! This includes our Vegan seasonal Kimchi and our Kimchi Kraut.
What does lacto fermented mean? Is that dairy?
Nope, no dairy ever! lacto-fermentation occurs when starches and sugars in cabbage and other veggies are converted into lactic acid by good bacteria. So the “lacto” actually refers to the lactic acid, not lactose like in dairy products.
Do ya’ll sell any other products besides sauerkraut?
Yes! We also take our delicious sauerkraut and Low-Temp dehydrate it so it stays raw and doesn’t kill all the good bacteria. This makes it a deliciously savory and sour snack filled with umami punch! It’s great for on the go, traveling, hiking, or the perfect snack in your little one’s lunch.
Are your ferments gluten free?
Yes, all of our ferments are naturally gluten free!
Is your sauerkraut raw?
Yes, our sauerkraut is never cooked, heated, or pasteurized. And our sauerkraut 'Jerky' is low temp dehydrated, under 118 degrees, for about 24 hours.
Are any of your products certified Organic?
Currently, none of our products have an organic certification. However we are proud to say that we always use certified organic produce, herbs, and spices. While we strive to use 100% certified organic ingredients, there are exceptions for hard to find items, especially for limited edition, or seasonal, locally sourced ferments.
Do i need to refrigerate the kraut before and after opening?
Yes. Our Sauerkraut does need to be refrigerated before and after opening. It will continue to ferment if not refrigerated. While this may not necessarily cause the kraut to "go bad", it could alter the taste. This is a live, raw, active product, and is never heated or pasteurized.
How long will it last in the refrigerator after opening?
We typically say 6 months. Now with that said, we've admittedly had jars of our own kraut in our refrigerator for over a year, and still ate them without issue.
What else can I eat it on besides a hot dog or sausage?
We hear this a lot. We eat it on anything, anytime of day. Tacos, brekkie or lunch variety. We'll have it with scrambled eggs, avocado toast, in a frittata, on a reuben, with some classic Texas BBQ, in potato salad, in deviled eggs, or get adventurous with a curried Waldorf chicken salad!
