Vegetable Fermenting Starter Culture
Free Gift

$ 21.99


While a starter culture is not necessary for fermenting vegetables, many fermenters love using this Caldwell's Starter Culture to achieve a consistent, probiotic-packed result. Caldwell's Starter Culture for Fresh Vegetables is the result of over 20 years of scientific study to identify the ideal bacterial strains for stimulating efficient fermentation. This starter culture will help ferment vegetables faster and encourage a higher and more diversified presence of beneficial bacteria. While using a starter culture will aid in maintaining crispness of vegetables and achieving a desirable flavor, a starter culture is not a replacement for salt. If you are interested in creating lower salt vegetable ferments, you may want to use this starter culture, with the understanding that salt is still necessary for ideal texture and taste.

Each box contains 6 pouches and each pouch will culture approximately 4.5 lbs of vegetables.

Starter culture includes bacterial strains of lactobacillus plantarumleuconostoc mesenteroides, and pediococcus acidilactici.
