Fermented foods are foods that have been through a process of lacto fermentation in which natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch in the food creating lactic acid. This process preserves the food, and creates beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics. Foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi, pickled cucumbers and kombucha (fermented tea) are derived from this process.
