What are Fermented Foods?

From kombucha to sourdough bread, fermented foods and drinks are becoming increasingly popular around the world as more and more people recognise their importance in maintaining overall health and wellness. 

The fermented food process is a natural process that sees food and beverages undergo a controlled microbial growth period that enables microorganisms, such as yeast, mould and bacteria, to break down its components into other products, such as alcohol and organic acids. This gives them a strong and unique flavour and aroma.

While fermentation has been used for thousands of years as a way to extend shelf life, it’s only recently that it has become valued for its potential health benefits as well. 

Fermented foods are rich in probiotics - the good live bacteria that can be found in a healthy gut. Probiotics, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, may help to boost gut health by creating a more balanced gut microbiome. 

You can buy store-bought fermented foods that come pre-packaged, as well as make your own. Homemade fermented foods can be tricky as the fermentation process needs to be done correctly to avoid food safety risks.

GoodnessMe have made it easy for you to buy fermented food that’s ready to eat! As one of the fastest growing online health food stores in Australia, we have a fantastic range of health food products to nourish and fuel the body and mind, including fermented foods from trusted brands like Ceres Organics.

Why are Fermented Foods Good for You?

Eating fermented foods may have a number of health benefits for the body. It’s believed that the process of fermentation magnifies the nutritional properties of certain foods by improving the bioavailability of the active peptides, vitamins and minerals produced by microorganisms during fermentation. This may have a key role in helping to support digestive health, blood health, nerve function, immunity and more.

Here are some of the potential health benefits of fermented food and drinks:

  • Improved gut health
  • Lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels
  • Stronger immune system
  • Enhanced mood and brain function
  • Increased bone health
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Better weight management
  • Faster recovery after exercise

 

What are the Types of Fermented Foods?

You can find many types of fermented foods, from fermented vegetables to fermented seafood, meats, dairy and other wholefoods. Sauerkraut, a product made from fermented cabbage, is one of the most popular products available worldwide. Here are 10 other common types of fermented food and drinks you will come across:

  • Kombucha
  • Beer
  • Yoghurt
  • Miso
  • Kimchi 
  • Tofu
  • Tempeh 
  • Sourdough bread
  • Kefir
  • Tabasco sauce

 

Who Shouldn’t Eat Fermented Foods?

While there are many fermented food benefits to be had, there are some people who may wish to avoid taking large amounts of fermented foods. Those with IBS on a low FODMAP diet will need to be cautious when eating foods that have been fermented as fermentation can cause some raw low FODMAP foods to become high FODMAP. This is thought to be the case with white cabbage and kimchi.

However, they are safe to eat in small doses and may even help you to improve your symptoms. Kefir is considered high FODMAP and should be avoided on this diet. Other fermented foods that are safe to eat include Greek yoghurt, miso, tempeh and sourdough bread.

What Should I Look for in Fermented Foods?

When putting together a fermented food list, look for foods that have been naturally fermented in their own juices. When you crack open the jar of some heart healthy pickled vegetables or other fermented food, you want to see little bubbles in the liquid which means there are living organisms in there.

You can shop quality fermented products at GoodnessMe, one of Australia’s most trusted and exciting online health food stores. Discover popular products like Ceres Organics Organic Sauerkraut and Turmeric Sauerkraut with Indian Spice. These products have been made with organic cabbage that’s been fermented in their juices for a crunchy, zingy low-carb food you can add to cooking, salads or your favourite sandwich! 

Pick up these and more when you shop online at GoodnessMe.
