A basic introduction to fermentation
Food fermentation is the process by which natural bacteria feed on carbohydrates creating lactic acid. In addition, this bacteria is the good kind that strengthens your immune and aids your digestive system. This process is known as Lacto-fermentation. It preserves food and breaks it down in a manner that the body finds easy to process. Plus, preserving foods this way also increases the availability of nutrients. As well as enzymes, omega acids, and certain good bacteria. It also results in interesting flavors, textures, aromas, and smells. Finally, the overall benefits are not only limited to your immune system or your digestive system. But they contribute to your overall wellness. Some of the benefits of fermented foods are:
- An excellent source of nutrients
- A clean system
- Very cost-effective.
- Besides, fermented foods can be stored in the refrigerator for weeks compared to fresh produce which only lasts a couple of days and they contain more probiotics.

How to Ferment Foods
Fermenting food is a fairly simple process but it does require some attention to detail. With our key tips you will be fermenting like a pro in next to no time.
You will need:
- A fermentation pot/ jar
- A food processor or a Superblender
- A chopping board
- A mixing bowl (depending on what you are making)
- Canning jars
- A mandoline slicer/grater
- A good quality kitchen knife
This is a very important step in the fermentation process. Your ingredients determine your end product so always go for fresh ingredients. In the case of fruit and vegetables check for any spoils before purchasing them and whenever possible go for organic produce. These should be thoroughly washed at all times to avoid bad bacteria developing during the fermentation process.
This depends on the food that is being prepared. Some food recipes such as Kombucha need a starter culture to get the process going. Most vegetables just need salt or a combination of whey and salt depending on personal preference and the recipe being used.
Since the fermentation process is basically bacteria converting food from one state to another, you want to ensure that only good bacteria will come into contact with the food. All equipment that will be used for fermentation should be thoroughly cleaned (sterilised where necessary) to avoid contamination. Once the fermented food is transferred to jars ensure that they are tightly sealed before refrigerating.
When is it ready?
There is no real formula to be able to know when your fermented food is ready. It depends on what you are fermenting and how you prefer your fermented food to taste. Some people like it mild, others average and others strong. There are however things that you can look out for such as a change in the smell and the formation of bubbles. On average a good ferment takes an estimate of 3-7 days to be ready but this depends on factors such the preexisting bacteria, the temperature in your kitchen and the produce that you have selected.
The best way to store fermented foods is to refrigerate. The cold air will slow down the fermentation process, allowing you to preserve your foods for months.

Lactic acid fermentation is a process where oxygen does not exist. The gutter, when filled with oil or water, locks oxygen out of the crockpot. Furthermore, it allows the naturally created carbon dioxide to escape.
Manufactured from high-quality ceramic and glazed in white, the Fermenta does not absorb liquids into the ceramic.

TIP: Smaller Quantities in 2Lt Low Profile Jug of Vitamix E320
The 2Lt low-profile jug of the Vitamix E320 is designed to be shorter and wider at the base in order to better fit on most kitchen countertops. Because of the shape of the jug, it does require more ingredients than other jugs, making it tricky to blend smaller batches. When using this low profile jug, we recommend using at least 3-4 cups of ingredients in order to cover the blades and prevent splashing. Additionally, we recommend always starting with liquid first (enough to cover the blades) and further working your way up from soft to hard ingredients.
