Fermented foods – what’s the deal?

By September 6, 2017Food trends

Every week there’s a new fad diet. Fermented food, however, is not one of them – in fact, it’s been around for a very long time.

Frequent illness, lethargy, digestive issues, sleeping problems and acne are all potential symptoms of a struggling gut.

Fermentation has become increasingly popular, especially as it has vast benefits for your intestinal health. But before you turn your nose up at the idea of fermented food, you’re probably already eating it on a daily basis – yogurt and cheese are just two examples.

About 70-80% of our immune system is found in our intestines – and a healthy gut means a healthy you.

“And it makes total sense as it sits at the junction of other emerging current trends,” says Robyn Smith, founder of Faithful to Nature.
