If you are not sure what cultured vegetables mean, you can understand it now. Replace the word “cultured” with “fermented” and read as “fermented vegetables” that refers to the chemical process of breaking a complicated substance into simpler parts by using bacteria, yeasts, or fungi. Think of dahi – that’s a fermented food you commonly eat.
Why cultured (fermented) vegetables?
The natural fermentationprocess augments the minerals, vitamins, and amino acids in vegetables – which in turn helps in a lot of ways, because the cultured foods contain live enzymes and bacteria. These improve digestion, boost immunity, controlweight, cleanse blood, nourishthe skin, and help the overall health.
Besides, when vegetables are fermented, the bacteria that are naturally present in the vegetables swiftly lowers the pH. This kicks off the overall acidic environment for the bacteria to reproduceand convert sugar and starch into lactic acid.The whole process results in vegetables turning soft, delicious, and a tad pickled.
