Bio Kitchen is the name of our premium range of organic and biodynamic staple foods in clear glass jars which are naturally sweet and full of flavour.
Sauerkraut literally means sour cabbage in German. Naturally fermented, without added vinegar- just salt and time as well as juniper berries for a delicious and authentic taste. Sauerkraut is made by a pickling process called lacto-fermentation that is similar to how traditional gherkins and kimchi are made.
Please note that this product is pasteurised to make it suitable for safe ambient storage and consumption.
Since 1927, Demeter has been the trademark for products from certified biodynamic production, a method of organic farming originally developed by Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner. He introduced the idea of a holistic farming system based around the phases of the moon, composting and mixing crops with livestock.
Key features of Demeter farming: The avoidance of synthetic fertilisers - The use of manures and composts - Frequent crop rotations - Avoidance of chemical soil treatments - Measures to strengthen the life processes in the soil - Consideration of celestial and terrestrial influence.

Seeing as we can't go on holiday to Germany right now we had a German lunch with German beer and music! We ate this hot with sausages, mustard and roasted vegetables. Delicious with excellent digestive benefits for days. I'm not a sauerkraut expert so I can't comment on whether it tasted authentic or not, although I enjoyed it as much as the sauerkraut I tried in Germany some years ago.
Biodynamic even better than organic and probably quite a skill with all the planets and that.
I trust demeter and a probiotic to boot. hurrah.
Enticed by the label with the health-inspiring words: Clearspring, Bio Kitchen and Organic I wanted to know whether the sauerkraut was unpasteurised but neither the label nor the shop staff could give me an answer and so I bought a jar to check this out at home and taste the product. Whilst the sauerkraut is very tasty, indeed, I had to see on your website that it is actually pasteurised. Therefore the nutritional benefits are lost owing to the bacteria being destroyed in the pasteurisation process and it is just a tasty, fibre providing snack.
There should be full information on the label.
