Putting the spotlight on our Heartbeet Kraut and the benefits it brings.
Fermented beetroot could be the superfood your Instagram feed isn’t showing you.
Even though your mother told you to eat all your greens – kale, matcha and spirulina aren’t the only options you have to feed your body the best nutrients. More and more importance is being placed on eating vegetables of a variety of colours, and beetroot is a great example why.
But what if beets could do even more?
While many are beginning to catch on about the benefits of raw beets, few are harnessing the real power of fermented beetroot.
Although there are many great benefits from consuming raw beets – either as a juice, or in a meal form – there is a risk of eating too much. Beetroot is high in sugar, and as a result shouldn’t be consumed in large quantities. Consuming a significant amount of food with high sugar content is never a good idea – no matter the health benefits.
That’s where fermenting comes in!
The fermentation process is attributed to the removal of the majority of sugar in beets, and as a result, is already a far healthier way to consume the root.
However, fermenting beetroot does even more than just get rid of the sugar. Fermenting beets is also a way to make the same benefits you get from raw beets more bioavailable – a term here which describes the absorption of nutrients into tissue and organs. This means that your heart will reap more rewards if your beets are fermented.
We aren't beeting around the bush here – beetroot kraut is a heavyweight in the superfood category. And it tastes great too!
