The Importance of Fermented Foods
If we look at different diets around the world, there is one unifying element. All cultures consume some form of fermented food in the daily diet. Most of us in the West are not that familiar with fermented food and if we are, we probably don’t consume a variety of fermented foods with enough regularity. We may have the odd bowl of Miso soup or Sauerkraut now and then, but few of us consume a large enough variety of these
important foods on a daily basis.
The Healing Power of Fermentation
Fermentation is a powerful form of food preparation that breaks down the food into its smallest components assuring optimal bioavailability and digestibility of those key nutrients. More importantly though, fermented foods are healing foods in that new beneficial and protective compounds are created through the fermentation process that support numerous biological functions of the body. Adding a variety of fermented foods into one’s daily diet is crucial for maintaining optimal gut health, immune health, enzyme regulation, acid/ alkaline balance, detoxification, reduction of inflammation, antioxidant support and so much more.
Regulats: A New Class of Fermented Preparations
Most fermented foods involve one type of food that is fermented once. Sauerkraut is a great example of this: cabbage is fermented using Lactic Acid Bacteria. While this is beneficial it can not compare to the complexity of fermenting a variety of healing super foods in a unique combination using multiple stages of fermentation.
Regulat®, developed by a food chemist and pharmacist in Germany, Dr. Hans Niedermaier, is a special preparation of numerous Certified Organic fruits, vegetables and nuts that involves multiple series of fermentations using Lactic Acid Bacteria.
Certified Organic super foods such as Coconuts, Lemons, Walnuts, Celery, Artichoke, Millet, Peas, Soy, Figs, Dates, Mung-bean sprouts and Onions are selected for the synergistic array of compounds created during the fermentation process. Protective herbs such as Turmeric, Saffron, Fennel, Cloves, Cinnamon and Ginger are added after the fermentation process is complete.
