Frequently Asked Questions
Why is my new jar of Superkraut fizzing?
Also possibly hissing, popping, erupting and/or foaming.
We recommend putting our products in the fridge before opening as cooling them down will settle the extra CO2 that builds up when they are not refrigerated in transit.
Also to combat the fizzing, particularly in our Superkraut and Cashew Cheese ranges you can leave the lid off for some time and keep tasting it as the CO2 escapes until it is to your liking.
All that said it's still safe to consume! One of the main reasons this occurs is because unlike most other products that need to be preserved by means of heat our products are unpasteurised, so when we seal them we do it while it's at room temperature as heat would destroy all of the good bacteria we put in there.
The fermentation process is still active long after we close the lid and this can build up pressure and create some movement inside the jars, so really it's just the goodness inside getting excited to encourage good gut health for everyone!
Is this string in my Dill Cashew Cheese?
Don't worry, it's just the tougher parts of the stem from the Dill that hasn't quite broken down as much as the rest of it, it's still edible but we won't be offended if you flick it away and discard of it.
We have remedied this in our newer batches by breaking the Dill down further.
