Adrian here! Fermented foods – also known sometimes as probiotic foods – are a super hot topic in health right now. As far as we’re concerned here at Gut Geek all the hype is absolutely justified! But that’s not because fermented foods are trendy all of a sudden. In fact they’ve been around for as long as humans have. It’s just we kinda forgot about them for a while, and our health suffered as a result.
It just so happens that our resident nutritional therapist Naomi is a sh*t-hot expert in fermented foods so we’ve written this article together!
Names like ‘kimchi’, ‘kombucha’, ’sauerkraut’ and ‘kefir’ are all rather strange looking words that are popping up a lot more frequently. They may be fairly new to our vocabulary but these fermented foods and drinks date back centuries, originating as a preservation method in ancient China.
