One of the latest health food trends is fermenting and for good reason: it’s all about your gut health! VGM International is excited to announce the arrival of superior quality, 5 litre fermentation crocks from their newest niche brand, Schmitt.
The gut is exceptionally important as it controls every aspect of our health and wellbeing from mood to cravings, weight to hormones, and even how we digest food. By acting as a natural probiotic, fermented foods fuel the body with good bacteria. Fermented foods such as sauerkrauts, kombucha and yogurts have many health benefits such as boosted energy, stronger immunity and increases levels of essential vitamins and anti-oxidants.
Store bought jars of sauerkraut and kimchi can be pricey, so why not make your own endless supply and know exactly how it’s been made and what goes into it!
Made by German experts in ceramics and stoneware with over 80 years of experience, Schmitt Fermentation Crocks are the best way to a healthy digestive system and help to regain gut balance for the whole family.
Schmitt crocks help to facilitate a gentle fermentation process where lactic acid bacteria are given optimum conditions for development. The robust, handcrafted pots are baked at 1260°C and finished with a natural mud glaze. The two-piece stone weight also creates the required pressure for fermentation and helps ensure that the level of liquid in the pot is sufficient.
One of the largest capacities available to the domestic market, Schmitt’s impressive five-litre volume is perfect for creating a big batch of sauerkraut to keep you and your family and friends healthy! The fermentation process normally takes a couple of weeks so this means that the initial effort of shredding organic cabbages (or any other vegetable of your choice) is well worth it!
Available in both white and brown, other features of Schmitt’s stoneware fermentation crocks include:
• The natural mud glaze means that the crock will not absorb liquid or bacteria, which can impair taste, and also makes it nice and easy to clean!
• Suitable for fermenting all types of vegetables
• Complete with lid, weighing stones and instruction booklet
• 100% made in Germany
Schmitt Fermentation Crocks are available now for an RRP of $149 at www.kitchenwaredirect.com.au, Peters of Kensington, Your Home Depot & www.everten.com.au.
