What's the first thing that comes to mind at the mention of cultured foods? Perhaps you have noticed the growing interest in fermented foods and their many potential health benefits? 

The human body is home to around 100 trillion microbes and even though we often think of microbes as harmful, many are indeed essential to our good health. Fermented foods are full of beneficial bacteria and can contain many times more beneficial microbes than any probiotic supplement. This means including fermented food in your balanced diet can improve your gut health and immune system. 

Ferment! Fermentation for Beginners is a beginner's guide to help you get started. This book will help you learn the basics of fermentation as well as improve your understanding of the numerous health benefits that this ancient method of preserving food can bring when enjoyed as part of your daily diet. It contains many tried-and-tested recipes for fermenting fruits, vegetables, grains and dairy. 

But overall, fermenting is much more than just that. It is doing our part by leading a sustainable life and helping the environment by making sure we are not throwing away food that we could easily ferment and preserve for a longer period of time.
