Make fruit kvass for the probiotic benefits. You can make kvass from just about any fruit or mixture of fruit. You can even make it out of peel and seeds that otherwise would be thrown out. Fermented foods are very beneficial to our gut health. Before refrigeration people fermented many of their foods as a way to keep them for longer.
Today we don’t eat many fermented foods. While most of do eat pickles and yogurt there are many other foods we could be eating that are fermented and hold probiotic benefits. Some may have heard of kefir, kombucha, kimchi and a few might eat sauerkraut. For the most part not many are eating plenty of fermented foods.
