Shocking Probiotic Count of Raw Sauerkraut

Raw home-made sauerkraut was analysed in the lab and it was found that in just a cup of it there were literally about ten trillion probiotic bacteria! That means a half cup of home fermented raw sauerkraut contains more probiotics than a whole bottle of best very expensive probiotic supplement!

Unfortunately most of the commercial sauerkrauts are pasteurised (heated) which means they are either completely deprived of live probiotic bacteria or are too low in them to be a good source of probiotics. Also probiotic count of store-bought, shelf stable sauerkraut does not compare to the raw home-brewed sauerkraut.
