HEALTH BENEFITS OF LACTOFERMENTATION
Known to our ancestors since time immemorial, lactofermentation is used as a method of preserving food. This practice makes it possible to increase the shelf life of food and to consume it throughout the winter without any risk to its health.
A natural conservation technique
Today, we are hearing more and more about fermentation, lactic ferments, lactofermentation ... but what exactly is this practice and what are the benefits?
There are several types of fermentation: lactic, alcoholic, acetic, malolactic, burytic, ... We are going to talk to you essentially about lactic fermentation, called lactofermentation.
1-Rebalances our intestinal flora
Lactofermented foods and drinks are easier to digest and less irritating to the intestines. The lactic acid present in these lactofermented foods has a beneficial effect on the intestinal flora and our intestines. It rebalances the microbiota, which ensures the proper functioning of the intestinal barrier and strengthens our immunity which is necessary for general well-being.
This is why lactic ferments are highly recommended after antibiotic therapy which destroys the intestinal flora and thereby weakens our immune system. Intestinal problems such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, acidity ... decrease sharply until sometimes disappear.
Lactofermentation allows good bacteria like "probiotics" to proliferate.
They eliminate toxins accumulated in the body, eliminate the phytic acid present in cereals and reduce the effect of pesticides found in food.
3-Increases the mineral content
Lactofermentation increases the bioavailability of minerals initially present in food. The mineral content in lactofermented foods is higher than at harvest.
4-Presence of vitamins C, B and K
Vitamin "c" remains present in large quantities in lactofermented foods. This vitamin is very important for maintaining growth, structure of bones, cartilage and teeth, it is an antioxidant, chelator of toxic and heavy metals.
Lactofermentation allows the synthesis of vitamins B and K essential for the functioning of the nervous system, muscles, essential for the development of cells.
