The Global AgeWatch Index of 2015 states that we live in an ageing world. In 2015, there were an estimated 901 million people over the age of 60. By 2050, this is expected to more than double, at 2092 million.
So, what’s the secret? While there are many components that may have an impact on our life expectancy, science suggests there may be one ingredient that plays an active role - fermented foods.Read More
Over the past few years, there has been much research that indicates the prevalence of food allergies are on the rise. One type of food that is a common allergen is peanuts.
Peanuts aren’t nuts, despite common belief, but rather, legumes. A peanut allergy is often lumped together with a tree nut allergy (cashews, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds) because many people allergic to peanuts also react to tree nuts.Read More

It's held over four days, so come by if you have a spare few hours! You'll get to sample any (or all) of the six flavours of fermented foods. And, if you're lucky, we might even have some crackers and salmon left to serve with our sauerkraut.

Honestly, we love meeting new people and hearing how they've experienced the vast benefits of fermented foods. The gut-healing properties of sauerkraut is the reason why Living Goodness exists today, after all.
We're super excited to see you all in a week. There'll be many wonderful stalls of interesting, nutritional and delicious foods. Live demonstrations run throughout all four days, so make sure you plan your day accordingly.
Have a look and see which of our products you'd like to purchase from us at the food show. We can't promise that we won't sell out!
What a whirlwind past few months! It feels as though the team here at Living Goodness have been run off our feet, packing boxes upon boxes of fermented foods for food shows!
At the start of this month, Fiona and Pete were lucky enough to go down to Tauranga for The Seriously Good Food Show. For two whole days, they let the people of Tauranga taste their sauerkraut and kimchi until their taste buds exploded in flavour (not literally).
It was fascinating to hear the exciting cook-offs happening quite close to our stall! Certainly, it made the crowds hungry because, by the end of it, testing pots of our fermented products were flying from our hands! Luckily, there was a coffee corner to keep the team going.
If you'd like to read more about the range of fermented foods, just read our newest page here - Fermented Foods 101.
So, what's next in store for the team? We'll be at the Auckland Food show from 27th July - 30th July so pop down and try some.
Last month, the team at Living Goodness attended the Healthy Food Guide LIVE show to share jars of fermented foods with a hungry audience.
Boy, oh boy! Probiotic goodness flew out of our fridges! We sold more three-jar sets and Sum Yum Kimchi than ever before - a great success. There was barely any time to stop and relax!
It was lovely to hear people come up to us and say, “I’ve been dying to try your Kimchi”, or to see others taste fermented foods for the first time. We do canapes of The Salmon Man's salmon & gluten free crackers, people tend to think of sauerkraut and sausages so its great to give people new ideas check some more out here!)

Additionally, there is also a list of benefits to eating fermented foods in an article by the Healthy Food Guide, including how to make your own Kombucha.
