What fermentation process does Grimm’s Fine Foods use?
- Lacto-fermentation. Lactobacillus bacteria go to work on the sugars present in the food, and convert them to lactic acid.
- This process acts a natural preservative, stopping harmful bacteria from multiplying, allowing beneficial probiotic bacteria to thrive.
- It also makes the pickles, sauerkraut and kimchi taste delicious!
