The Enzyme Craze & You
Food fermentation has, for thousands of years, been the most common way of food preparation and food preservation, thereby maintaining and in most cases even improving the nutritional value of these foods Fermentation not only preserves food but also enhances the health benefits of the final product.
Eating probiotic-rich foods—good bacteria—is one way to boost gut health. Fermented foods, like yogurt and kimchi, are rich in probiotics.
Fermented foods are currently being promoted to prevent or cure a range of diseases from obesity to cancer. For instance, kimchi is claimed to have anticancer, antiobesity, antiaging, and anticonstipation effects (Kim et al., 2011).
Many different cultures have their own authentic fermented dishes and this workshop will teach several of these famous dishes.
Sadly, most of today’s store-bought Kim-Chi are done quickly without much fermentation.
Some even use artificial preservatives and flavouring.
Cannot image what most people will do to make their Kim-Chi last long and taste better.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could ferment some of the famous Fermented Dishes at home.

The Arts & Science Of Fermenting Food

The correct fermentation of the fruits and vegetables will produce nourishing Probiotics, whereby eating it will boost the body’s overall Immune System, promote a Healthier Digestion, Detoxifying and Revitalizing our body cells.
During the process of Fermentation, live bacteria will “pre-digest” the nutrients and elevate the enzyme levels.
These “Elevated Enzymes” are highly beneficial to our body cells. It also Significantly Aids the body’s ability to:
Utilize nutrients properly
Live Beneficial Bacteria also protects you from harmful bacteria in the gut and promotes healing of the intestinal lining. It aids your body in expelling toxins and waste which would otherwise be stored and accumulated.
