What is Lacto-fermentation?*

Lacto-fermentation is a traditional form of food preservation.  Fermentation preserves food in a natural way without the use of vinegar, sugar, pasteurization or artificial preservatives. The process of fermentation creates a live and cultured super food, rich in nutrients, probiotics and enzymes. Lacto-fermentation is the process that converts starches and sugars present in vegetable matter, into lactic acid. Lacto bacilli are a beneficial bacteria that naturally preserve food and directly supply your digestive tract with living cultures of micro flora and bacteria that are essential to digestion and nutrient absorption.
