About the event

Lochwinnoch Community Larder brings you this event with Angela O'Neill. 

Learn about the health benefits of fermenting foods and the process of producing food through controlled microbial growth. There has been a huge surge in popularity and interest in fermentation recently due to proposed health benefits. It is not a new food technique , fermenting was used hundreds of years ago primarily to preserve fresh foods. Fermentation can be defined as food and beverages produced through controlled microbial growth. It is now recognised that fermenting foods has many heath benefits. It is said to improve gut health , the probiotics produced by fermentation can help restore the balance of friendly bacteria and help relieve some digestive problems. Evidence suggests probiotics can reduce the symptoms of IBS , diarrhoea, gas and bloating. Other health benefits include a boost to the immune system,  a reduction in symptoms of anxiety and depression, decrease in the  risk of heart disease and an increase in the availability of beneficial nutrients.  During this demonstration I will show you  how easy it is to make a simple, tasty , short ferment Salsa and a basic Sauerkraut using everyday ingredients and basic equipment.
