How long do your fermented foods last in refrigeration?
It does not matter if you have opened it or not. For your optimal gut health we suggest 90 days though they can keep longer, but ideally you want to eat that jar or drink that bottle in one week, for the highest probiotic potency.
How much time do I have after I have picked them up from you, to put them back into refrigeration?
If you brought your insulated bag with you then 6-8 hours out of direct sunlight.
If they are in a regular bag, no more than 2 hours out of direct sunlight.
If you go longer on either account, just open jar over a sink and release the natural build-up of CO2, that these living organisms started to produce while fermenting at room temperature.
Who should be eating our fermented food?
Everyone; professionals, families, athletes, babies, pregnant women, people with compromised immune and/or digestive systems, anyone that is interested in healthy eating but doesn’t have the time or energy to commit to doing it on their own. The food in the jars and bottles is intended to provide digestive enzymes, minerals, vitamins, electrolytes, probiotics and increased absorption of nutrients to your regular meals.
What do you mean when you say Probiotic?
It means live microorganisms that provide digestive and immune benefits when consumed. Probiotic means the same as “cultured” and “fermented”.
Why are fermented foods so good for me?
“All Disease Begins In The Gut.” Thousands of years later, research continues to confirm that Hippocrates was definitely onto something.

What makes our wild probiotics so unique?
We are the only fermented food company in California that works with a variety of local organic farmland communities. We are Farm-To-Gut producers. We hand-pick, hand-make, hand-label and hand-pack each jar/bottle in our State and County certified commercial kitchen. We use only the finest in-season locally grown organic vegetables. We then age our ferments in glass, for up to 28 days. This gives you the MOST diverse amounts of PROBIOTICS and perfectly tangy savory flavors that await your happy gut!
How do I incorporate all this glorious fermented food into my lifestyle?
You start by adding fermented foods into your everyday meals. That means adding to your favorite salads, sandwiches, bratwurst, burgers, wraps, burritos, tacos, rice, sushi and egg dishes. With beet kvass and bio-soda you can use as a morning tonic or before or after a meal. The possibilities are endless as we re-learn how to eat in culture!
When is the best time to take probiotics?
Either first thing in the morning on an empty stomach to start your day off right- fueling yourself with foot soldiers to help digest your food throughout the day and protect against colds and viruses. Or, two hours after your last meal of the day before you go to bed. Your body is resting, repairing and rebuilding from the day. You have less environmental and social stresses so the probiotics will have a better chance of attaching and working for you.
What do I do with the empty jars and bottles?
You can up-cycle your jars by decorating them, putting candles in them, storing spices or using them as a flower vase or a cup. OR you can return your empty jar or bottle on your next visit.
