The SCHMITT Fermentation Crocks are superior quality stoneware fermentation pots, which are baked at 1260°C and then finished with a natural mud glaze. Stoneware does not absorb water and bacteria like other materials, which is an essential feature in the fermenting process because cleanliness is so important. The SCHMITT Fermentation Crocks facilitate a gentle fermentation process where lactic acid bacteria is given optimum conditions for development, allowing the biological preservation to takes its course. The two-piece stone weight is required to create the pressure necessary for lactic acid fermentation and helps ensure that the level of liquid in the sauerkraut pot is sufficient.
Fermenting is one of the latest health food trends and for good reason – it’s all about your gut! Fermented foods such as sauerkraut
help promote balance in the digestive system and act as a natural probiotic. Fermented foods have numerous health benefits,
such as: boosted energy, stronger immunity, better digestion and so much more.
