Making Probiotic Superfoods at Home
Tempeh adds nutrition to meals
Scientific research is clear: incorporating live probiotic cultures into your diet boosts the immune system and promotes digestive health. Yogurt is one of the best-known live culture foods, but there’s a world of incredible probiotic superfoods out there, each of them delicious and uniquely beneficial. Lacto-fermented pickles and sauerkraut (fermented in water, instead of pickled in vinegar) are making a comeback, with more and more people culturing them at home. Kefir and kefir water energy drinks are also easy to make, delicious and very nutritious. Homemade cheese, kimchi, tempeh, kefir, kombucha – these superfoods literally bubble over with fresh flavor and health benefits.
With a temperature range of 70F-120F and the durability to operate for as many hours or days as necessary, the Proofer provides an ideal environment for fermenting and culturing probiotic superfoods.
