The wellness world has fallen for fermented food; from kombucha to sauerkraut, ferments are the clever way to boost your gut health and improve good bacteria. And now it’s even easier to ensure you’re getting your fix, thanks to Fermented by LAB’s clever subscription box. Delivering gut-loving fermented food and drink to your door every month, this is one to have on your radar...
Tell us more...
The brainchild of Alana Holloway from the popular blog Fodder + Plonk, Fermented by LAB is the first subscription box of its kind, providing a month’s supply of seasonal and raw fermented food to make looking after your gut a breeze. No mores searching specialist health food stores for sauerkraut and kefir.
Why are fermented foods so good for you?
These probiotic powerhouses are antioxidant-rich and healing; they work to boost the good bacteria in your digestive tract, helping you to digest food quicker, ease IBS symptoms, aid weight loss, clear up skin, flush out toxins and boost the immune system.
So what’s in the box?
Each box is packed with three jars of fermented items, such as kraut, pickles and kimchi (add to salads, soups and suppers), as well as three fermented drinks like kefir and kvass. The flavours change every season and are created to reflect the best of British organic produce, meaning you’ll never get bored with the flavours.
Are there any benefits of eating fermented foods over taking probiotics?
As Alana explains, there are countless benefits to incorporating probiotics in the form of food...
Ferments not only contain probiotics, they’re a rich source of vitamin B’s, C & K, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients, too.
They’ll add wonderful flavour to any dish – this month’s sauerkrauts were some of the tastiest we’ve ever tried.
When working to improve your gut health, introducing a variety of beneficial bacteria into your diet is key. The box is designed to provide a continually varied profile of good bacteria, rather than just taking the same old supplement.
Research has shown fermented foods such as sauerkraut can contain significantly more (trillions instead of billions) strains of probiotics than your standard tablet does.
Who should get on board?
Anyone looking to improve their gut health but who isn’t sure where to start. It’s also ideal for keen foodies – the krauts, pickles and kimchi pack are genuinely delicious and a great way to discover new flavours. And if you’re not keen on fermented foods, the ‘Soda Only’ box contains six bottles of probiotic soda – with flavours spanning from apple and mint kefir to lemon and thyme kvass.
Prices start from £20. For more information or to buy a box, visit FermentedByLab.com
