Fermented foods aren’t just some food trend, they’re a health trend too. Known for their digestive and detoxifying benefits, many are reaching for fermented foods. Some come in the form of commonly known items, while others may be completely brand new to our kitchen cabinets and vocabulary. Fermented foods you should see trend (or continue to trend) are foods such as yogurt – known for it’s probiotics supporting digestion, kombucha – a fermented tea that has a natural fizzy quality to it and also good for detox and digestion, sauerkraut- for digestion by restoring gut-flora and even cancer prevention, tempeh – which is fermented soy beans often used as a meat substitute in vegan recipes, pickles – again aids in digestion and even claims to have some immune system support, and koji – traditional in Japanese culture, it’s a fermented rice which claims to also have cancer preventing qualities.
