Absolutely, these are signs that the good bacteria in your sauerkraut are alive and well and ready to fill your gut with goodness!
As the fermentation process will continue when the jar is at room temperature, the jar should never be left out of refrigeration for longer than 3 hours
Once opened and kept refrigerated, we recommend using your kraut within 21 days
Each batch of sauerkraut is lovingly hand-made from organic ingredients, so each batch is slightly different and its consistency can vary depending on the water content of the produce
Cooking the sauerkraut will kill the good bacteria and enzymes it contains, so we don’t recommend it.
It is ok to add some raw sauerkraut to stews and soups, or stir through dishes once they are off the heat and being served.
If the top of your sauerkraut has gone a slight brown colour this simply means it has come into contact with oxygen. It is ok to remove this top layer and consume the kraut below.
Of course if your kraut has any abnormal smells or signs of mould, and you suspect it is off (very unlikely!) use your discretion when deciding whether to consume or not.
If you are new to the world of probiotics and just starting to eat sauerkraut we suggest adding a spoon full of kraut per day to a meal, gradually increasing over a couple of weeks to however much kraut your heart, gut and tastebuds desire!
We recommend consuming within 14 days after opening and keeping the bottle refrigerated.

We sure do! We combine cutting edge technology and traditional fermentation methods with extensive testing to create the highest quality products available. We use a natural L- Plantarum based culture starter as it produces more exopolysaccharides, longer probiotic life, less pathogens, is resistant to antibiotics, requires less salt and has a shorter fermentation leading to more good bacteria.
