I know that for a lot of people, sauerkraut is not all that appealing but that's certainly not the case for everyone, based on the stats, over at the Bubbies site.
Americans annually consume a whooping 387 million pounds of sauerkraut, or about 1.5 pounds per person per year.
Bubbies Sauerkraut is a very simple food with only 3 ingredients:
cabbage, water and salt
But all sauerkraut is NOT created equal and when it comes to flavor, Bubbies is superior to any other ones I've tried. And with no chemicals or preservatives, like some other brands have added to the mix.
Health-wise, sauerkraut has a lot going for it too:
-Sauerkraut is fat free and low in calories.
-Good source of Vitamin C and contains other important nutrients including iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, thiamin, riboflavin, fiber, and niacin.
-Health experts recommend eating several servings of cruciferous vegetables each week to reduce the risk of cancer of the colon. Sauerkraut, like cabbage, is cruciferous.
The only thing that would make Bubbies Sauerkraut even better is, you guessed it....an organic option. Hopefully something they will add to their product line soon.
If you've never tried sauerkraut before, or have and just didn't like it, Bubbies just might be the brand to change your mind.
