Probiotic RICH Red Cabbage Sauerkraut Recipe
HEALTH BENEFITS OF RED CABBAGE SAUERKRAUT
– Red cabbage is low in calories, high in vitamin C, vitamins A, K, B6, and fiber.
– During the fermentation process, as the cabbage ferments, a helpful probiotic, Lactobacillus, grows and thrives in the brine environment.
– Eating fermented foods, such as this homemade sauerkraut, can introduce good bacteria into the digestive tract for better digestion.
