View Full Version : Regarding Cultured Vegetables

I was wondering if cultured vegetables are considered raw since they are fermented (but not heated)? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Why wouldn't they be considered raw? Either way their beneifical especially in pro-biotics.. hey tonic herbs are super super super good for you.. and there's heat involved with extracting some of the properties... www.dragonherbs.com
Not all herbs need heat to be used beneficially....
I make my own kim-chi and man does it really vibe well with me and feel great!

Well Dr.Graham thinks they are not good for health, but he is also against oil, salt, dehydrated stuff, because they all are processed, all have something removed, at the very least water.
On the other side, Ann Wignore recommends a cup of fermented cabbage a day, but she also recommends enemas every day, so that requires to replenish bacteria in the gut.
I eat fermented veggies, but avoid salt, oil and dried stuff.

Yes if they are feremented without any heating process.
Fermented foods have the ability breakdown cellulose b/c cellulase is produce in the fermentation process..........plenty of vitamin and amino acids...........provides the good bacteria and the right level of acidic reaction in the stomach......... :)

Thank you all. It only makes good sense since they contain vitamins and probiotics. As far as oil goes - I notice that my skin dries out within days if I remove it from my diet. I like to use celtic sea salt - and do not have a problem with retention with it. Dehyrated stuff - I can take it or leave it. I really like most of my food not dehyrated - but to each their own I guess. Anyway...thanks for the responses. Have a wonderful day :)

I think that perhaps some crushed flax seeds every day would fix this problem.
