Sauerkraut is one of the most well-known fermented foods, having been passed down through history and surviving the passage of time. The process of fermenting foods to preserve goes back to the time before refrigeration was invented.
Today sauerkraut is widely popular for it's probiotic properties which are essential for a healthy gut. It is a great source of vitamins, high in calcium, magnesium and dietary fibre.
Digestive and gut issues are one of the most common causes of skin problems. So if you are suffering from acne, skin inflammation, rosacea or mature skin, try adding this to your daily diet.
Fermented foods provide the good bacteria for the stomach which keeps our digestive system in check. Sauerkraut is one the cheapest fermented food source which can either be store bought or easily made at home. Sauerkraut is basically finely chopped or grated cabbage fermented in salt to preserve it. I have added beetroot to this recipe for added benefits but you can skip it if you dislike it.
