We’ve teamed up with Elemental Wizdom® to source our incredible probiotic cultures. These human compatible strains ensure that you are receiving the most beneficial probiotics available anywhere. These strains are resistant to the harsh environment of the stomach and its acids, allowing them to make their way to the intestinal tract, where they adhere to the intestinal lining. This results in real and noticeable benefits to your overall health!
We add a small amount of Organic Stone Ground Coconut Butter to add richness and enhance the texture of the yogurts. Our fresh, Raw Coconut Butter is stone ground extremely slowly in small batches. It is truly an artisanal product and of course always organic.
Fermented foods are alive and active vs. probiotic supplements, which are usually freeze dried and dormant. Many probiotic supplements cannot survive the harsh stomach acid they must pass through on the way to your intestines. Our high quality probiotics combined with our fermentation process enables the bacteria to actually recolonize your inner eco-system, which is the purpose of adding probiotics to your daily diet. Fermentation pre-digests vital nutrients thus enhancing digestion and assimilation. Packed with vitamins, minerals and enzymes, fermented foods are whole foods full of nutritional value on their own. On top of that, the good bacteria in fermented foods increases the bioavailability of the nutrients in the foods you consume along side them!
If you are new to consuming fermented foods, we recommend starting with just a couple of tablespoons at a time to allow your body to acclimate to all of the new and powerful beneficial bacteria going to work in your body. Some people may be able to increase the serving quicker than others but regardless, in our experience once you have been regularly consuming these foods you will notice that your body will ask for more all of the time!
We love adding Cultured Veggies to a wide variety of foods or simply out of the jar. Some of our favorites ways include avocado and nori sheets rolled up with cultured veggies, crusty bread/sourdough with high quality ghee or butter topped with cultured veggies, mixed with nut butters, blended with high quality olive oil to make dressings, added to cheese boards, topping tacos, salads and sandwiches – so many opportunities to let your creativity flow!
