Why learn about fermented foods and add them to your diet? 

Some people love to ferment vegetables just for the fun and taste of it, but there are plenty of reasons to include them in your diet. They are backed by science and thousands (!) of years of healthy nutrition traditions.

Fermented foods are the source number one for healthy natural probiotics, which ensures a healthy gut and improves the entire digestion system. Fermentation process largely reduces anti-nutrient content, and improves absorption of nutrients from other products you consume. And of course, fermentation is a wonderful way to preserve the foods and benefit from their vitamins even when they are out of season.

Fermented foods are the healthiest, cheapest and some of the most delicious super foods available in the world. Starting from learning how to ferment vegetables simply, and how to create live-saving fermented drinks, our course will introduce you to various traditional fermentation techniques.
