40+ fermented foods for a ketogenic diet.

Cultures around the world have been fermenting foods for hundreds and hundreds of years. Sauerkraut, yogurt, and kombucha are some of the most popular natural probiotic foods of our modern day.

Did you know many cheeses, chocolate, and coffee are also products of fermentation? These classic fermented food recipes are great but there are so many more to try!

When we first moved from California down to Ecuador, I opened a small fermentation business making purple and green sauerkrauts, pickle relish, yogurts, and salsas. Now I love exploring keto diet approved home ferments!

The world of naturally fermented fruits and vegetables has always interested me and continues to be a source of inspiration for new recipes. Usually, recipes are simple enough to make with basic kitchen equipment, however, you can take the experience to a higher level with specific fermenting supplies that make the job easier.

Cultures for Health is my favorite place to learn new tips and methods for fermenting veggies and diary. This is also where I get my starter cultures for yogurt and cheese. You can search through their extensive library of advice and learn so much.

A few of these recipes use sugar to feed the beneficial bacteria and produce probiotics. While most sugar will be consumed by the culture, some may remain in depending on the length of fermentation. The longer the ferment, the less sugar remains.
