Fermented foods are considered critical to health by many and were consumed throughout human history as part of every meal (they were our primary means of preserving food). Returning to that pattern of eating them with every meal will often resolve over time many seemingly unrelated ailments and degenerative diseases. Unlike most of the fermented foods found in grocery stores, these have not been pasteurized after fermentation. Note that most of those listed in our Dairy, Eggs, & Meat section also sell homemade fermented dairy (kefir, yogurt, etc.) and vegetables fermented with whey.
