What are the benefits of fermented foods?

Fermented foods not only taste delicious, they also offer dozens of benefits: restore the natural balance of your internal flora, stimulate the immune system, stabilise gastric acidity, facilitate the absorption of nutrients and preserve food without losing nutritional value. Plus, with hundreds of recipes for probiotic, healthy fermented foods, you’re sure to discover something you love!

What is fermentation?

There are a few different kinds of fermentation, but Mortier Pilon recipes generally feature lacto-fermentation, think kimchi, kefir, yogurt, which is a process that turns the natural sugars found in food into a special type of acid that is rich in healthy probiotics. This type of fermentation uses salt and an anaerobic environment to kill off any harmful bacteria, and acid to help preserve the food. Interestingly, the types of bacteria that can be harmful to us are very vulnerable to salt, while healthy bacteria, like the type found in Greek yogurt, thrive in a salty environment. Mortier Pilon’s recipes rarely include acid for preservation, because the lacto-fermentation process actually creates acid from natural sugars found in food!
