At Scoop Wholefoods we are passionate about gut health. This means eating nourishing whole foods with minimal processing, as well as supporting your microbiome with a range of pre and pro biotic foods to support optimal gut health. In addition to our wide range of bulk whole grains, beans, nuts, eeds, dried fruits and more, we offer a large variety of fermented goods including:
Large Range of Organic Kombucha, Jun & Kefir Water available on Tap
These drinks are wild fermented, meaning that they are teeming with beneficial bacteria that supports healthy digestion. Kombucha and Jun are made by fermenting tea and kefir is made using water. The difference between Kombucha and Jun is that the former uses organic raw sugar and the latter uses raw honey. All these delicious health drinks are made using non refined sources of sugar for the bacteria to feed on in order to fermentation to occur. All are organic, boosted with delicious fresh fruits, essential oils or superfoods and are naturally sparkling from the fermentation process. A small glass a day is said to boost the immune system, aid healthy digestion and increase energy and vitality. Kids love these sparkling drinks, and they offer a natural healthy alternative to sugary soft drinks.
Organic Beetroot Kvass available in bottles and on tap in selected stores
Our Beetroot Kvass is fermented using Australian certified organic beetroot, filtered water, pure Australian inland salt and wild live cultures and is valuable for a multitude of reasons. It harnesses the extensive nutritional arsenal of beetroot through the traditional process of lactic acid fermentation increasing the bio-availablity of these nutrients to your body. The phyto-nutrients and betalins in beetroot help maintain proper cellular function and it has been used alongside cancer treatments and prevention. It's chelating properties help to detoxify the body while supporting the liver and kidneys. Beetroot Kvass is an excellent source of sodium, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, Vitamins A, B, C, K and folate as well as antioxidants and probiotics. We recommend starting with a 50ml shot up to twice daily for 7 days and then consume as desired.
Fermented foods are most beneficial as they are not only high in live healthy bacteria, but they are partially broken down and easy for the body to digest and extract all the nutritional value. This in turn boosts your digestion, energy and immunity as well as overall wellbeing. Even just 1 Tablespoon a day can make a great difference to your health.
