Eden Kimchi Sauerkraut is made of the finest organic cabbage grown in rich organic soil, carefully tended, harvested, and fermented by the Hirzel family. Since 1923 they have been growing the sweetest cabbage and making sauerkraut the way their family did in Switzerland. Hundreds of acres are enriched from years of on-site composting operations and organic care. Tree leaves and organic production by-products make rich organic compost. Soil thus enriched retains moisture and grows more delicious, nutrient dense food. Hot summer days and cool nights contribute to sweeter cabbage, then, generations of caring know-how make this spectacular Kimchi Sauerkraut.
Cabbage is washed, cored, and shredded, then lactic acid fermented with Eden Sea Salt for at least six weeks. Artisan management of the fermentation cannot be computerized.

Generations of experience and one family's care from the seed, sprouts, fields, harvesting, and fermentation creates a sauerkraut of considerable value and gives Eden Kimchi Sauerkraut its homemade, old-world character.
Fermented food can be extremely beneficial. Sauerkraut fermentation produces isothiocyanates with flavor common to wasabi, horseradish, mustard, radish, watercress, and capers. These compounds are garnering great interest in food science and medicine for their efficacies. Fermentation produces many healthy compounds not found in raw foods. "We are finding that fermented cabbage could be healthier than raw or cooked," said Eeva-Liisa Ryhanen, Ph.D., research manager of MTT Agrifood Research Finland. Fermentation produces organic acids and enzymes that make cabbage easier to digest and aid in digestion of food in general. They also boost immune strength. This research adds to the growing number of studies showing cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables are the best source of many healthful phytonutrient.
