Sauerkraut Soup





Sauerkraut is essentially fermented cabbage. Fermentation is a method of preserving food that dates back more than 2,000 years. During the fermentation process, beneficial probiotics, or ‘live bacteria’, are produced, and these probiotics are what give sauerkraut most of its health benefits.
Sauerkraut is a good form of dietary fibre and contains vitamins C and K, potassium, calcium and phosphorus.

What are the health benefits of sauerkraut?

The beneficial probiotics found in sauerkraut are important for good digestive health, and whilst more research is needed into the exact types of beneficial bacteria found in sauerkraut and other fermented foods, we do know that they ‘feed’ the good bacteria in your gut and can help to combat inflammation.
Research has shown that probiotics help to reduce some digestive symptoms such as gas, bloating, constipation and may be beneficial to those suffering with conditions such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis.
There is increasing research on the importance of good gut bacteria in supporting overall long-term health, including how probiotics from cultured foods such as sauerkraut may reduce your risk of conditions such as depression and Alzheimer’s.
Sauerkraut also contains enzymes that help the body to break down food into smaller, and more easily digestible molecules which in turn helps the body to absorb more nutrients.

 cook 2 large peeled potatoes and 2 carrots   separately as the acid in the kraut may prevent them from going soft if cooked together. Then add them to the soup made up of 500g sauerkraut, 2 cups water, 2 bay leaves, 3 all spice seeds and 100g diced bacon, simmer together for 30 minutes. Serves 4.
