Raw sauerkraut refers to sauerkraut that has never been heated or pasteurized. Pickled Planet keeps our kraut raw to ensure the healthy intestinal flora are available to help you. Some raw foods, such as raw crackers, pies and fruit leather, are heated at low temperatures to enhance flavor or texture. The sun is also available for this sort of thing.
Modern food manufacturers can or jar their kraut using heat in order to extend shelf life. Pickled Planet sauerkraut is packaged into jars at room temperature, with it’s own brine solution, then refrigerated to preserve the vitamins and beneficial bacteria.
Live sauerkraut, or raw sauerkraut, also has a distinctive flavor very different from the canned version.
