Which size pot best fits my needs?
Below is a conversion of approximately how much Symbiotas pots ferment
2L ferments - 1.8-2kgs of produce
4.5L ferments - 4-4.5kgs of produce
7L ferments - 6-7kgs of produce
Note: Ideally, most sauerkrauts should be fermented at a lower temperature (18-20 degrees celsius) for at least 3 weeks for the best probiotic diversity and content. If you are going to be eating 1.5kg+ of sauerkraut per month or you do not want to be fermenting too frequently it would be better to get the 4.5L pot. If you are a gardener or a large family and looking to preserve produce, you would likely consider the 7L fermentation crock.
Why should I ferment my own foods?
The fermentation of food is thousands of years old and has been known by all ethnicities around the globe. Preserving foods through the process of fermentation has allowed people to preserve and consume nutrient-dense foods throughout famines, wars, and seasons. Fermenting your own foods is easy, safe and economical. Fermented foods provide us with many health benefits and gut-healing properties. By fermenting fresh vegetables, we turn them into nutrient-dense and probiotic-rich foods which support our digestion, gut health and immunity.
