Benefits of naturally fermented foods

Farmented with Love™ for Flavor and Health!

Our probiotic salad dressings are uniquely delicious and naturally fermented using the lacto-fermentation process to stimulate the growth of beneficial microorganisms to help increase your good gut bacteria.

Lacto-fermentation is the process where bacteria break down sugars in foods and form lactic acid. Lacto-fermented foods include yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, and pickles among many others. The process produces beneficial probiotics.

Probiotics as part of a daily diet can help boost immunity, improve your digestion, build bone density, fight allergies, kill candida and improve your nutrient absorption.

Naturally fermented foods "... are preserved using an age-old process that not only boosts the food’s shelf life and nutritional value, but can give your body a dose of healthy probiotics, which are live microorganisms crucial to healthy digestion," says Dr. David S. Ludwig, a professor of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Lacto-fermentation benefits:

  • Increased enzymes can help you better absorb nutrients

  • Probiotics can help restore the balance in your gut flora and aid in digestion and immune health

  • The lacto-fermentation process increases a food's shelf life without depleting nutrients

  • The lacto-fermentation process can increase a food's nutritional content by enriching certain nutrients

Here at Kiss of Culture, my hand-crafted dressings are made with naturally fermented vegetables and juices, Northern California extra virgin olive oil, high quality vinegars, NON-GMO soy sauce and spices. These original recipes are from my kitchen and are abundantly rich in vital life force:
 

  • Live cultures

  • Raw ingredients

  • Fermented veggies and fruit


I am committed to bringing cultured food back to the family table. It is my joy and honor to share these dressings because I truly believe that health is the greatest of all human blessings!!
