Fermented foods are all the rage at the moment. Many people love the sour taste they have and there’s plenty of evidence to suggest a wide range of health benefits, in particular for gut health. You can buy a whole range of different fermented foods in grocery stores, but many of these can be made at home. Here are three you should try. 

Sourdough Bread

Sourdough has steadily become one of the most popular choices for bread these days, and for good reason. It can be expensive to buy though, and is even more delicious when made at home. You’ll need to make a ‘started’ but once this is done you can use it to make amazing bread whenever.


This tasty, sour dairy product has also increasingly become more popular. Many people love the super sour taste it has, and it’s known for its benefits to gut health. Making your own at home does require some attention, but it is so worth it for the even stronger taste you get and for the money you save. All you need is kefir seeds and milk. 


This popular Korean dish can be a complicated process but you’ll have complete control over exactly what you put in it and how strong you let it become. Many store-bought kimchis will have fish sauce in, so if you’re vegan it’s a great idea to make it at home to stick to a vegan recipe.
