  • Help with absorption of enzymes and minerals that are vital to a healthy diet

Grimm's Curry Sauerkraut What is natural fermentation?

  • Most pickles and sauerkraut you find on grocery store shelves have been processed using vinegar and calcium chloride.
  • The food is cooked under extreme heat and pasteurized, killing off any friendly bacteria and losing its nutritional value.

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!

  • Grimm’s Naturally Fermented Foods use traditional methods, and so contain live cultures.
  • This not only means that they taste great and are healthy for your gut, but also that the fermentation process is still happening.
  • Storing them in a refrigerator slows this process, making sure they retain the flavour that Grimm’s is famous for.
