Fermentation without pasteurisation is helpful
Having a varied diet and drinking unpasteurised products helps our body to obtain various microbes. The earth and its inhabitants are all interconnected. Biodiversity is the key to the survival of species such as humans. Your body is an ecosystem that can only function properly if it contains certain microorganisms. Wild fermentation can help with this.
Wild fermentation is a fermentation process in which microorganisms from the surrounding environment are incorporated into the food while it ferments.
If you do this at home, house organisms will be absorbed in your digestive tract. Together, we are strong! Some hostile organisms will have to battle an army of various microorganisms.
