In days past, before refrigeration was invented, lacto-fermentation was the method used to preserve food. Lactic acid is a natural preservative that inhibits putrefying bacteria. Foods could stay fresh longer when they were fermented in this way. With our modern conveniences, we have forgotten the wisdom of lactic acid fermentation and the benefits to our health. Take Jenny’s online class, Get Cultured and relearn this wisdom.
Beneficial bacterial are our friends
Humans reaped the benefits of this method of preservation by eating these foods and hosting the good bacteria. Eating these naturally preserved foods aids the human digestive system in many ways. First and foremost, we are able to maintain large populations of beneficial bacteria in our gut simply by eating cultured foods. Most people who do this, will not require a probiotic supplement.
The beneficial bacteria, yeasts, fungi, viruses and even worms that inhabit our intestines are old friends. They are supposed to live there, having evolved inside of us over hundreds of thousands of years. They do much for us and in return we give them home and hearth. These microscopic critters are our friends and as such must be treated with respect and generosity.
Modern lifestyle has reduced our friends dramatically
Over the course of the past hundred years, with urbanization, better sanitation, refrigeration and better living conditions, we have become more sterilized. Conventional attitudes have a firm belief in the germ theory and medicine quickly responds to the slightest sniffle with an antibiotic. We have done a good job in killing off potential pathogens, but also our beneficial bacteria as well.
Additionally, with the advent of refrigeration it was no longer necessary to ferment foods in order to preserve them. However, the symbiotic nature of our relationship with our microflora was not taken into account and most of us are depleted and out of balance, because we do not have the volume of beneficial bacteria we need.
The best way to reinoculate ourselves with beneficial bacteria is to eat cultured foods. There are so many to learn how to make at home! From the most common yogurt to more esoteric brining of vegetables, salsa, chutneys and condiments — most foods can be fermented — their shelf live lengthened without chemical preservatives, and most importantly, the beneficial bacteria is created.
