Re: Lacto Fermentation For Preserving Foods

Tatia, salt is a bacteriostatic. That is, it may not kill bacteria but it prevents the growth of bacteria. So salt is essential to pickling. There are different brines, some use more salt, some less, some vinegar, etc. but I suspect all will be a salt problem for you. The USDA and other resources online have literally two hundred years of recipes and information in pickling, you might start there.
"low-salt pickles" also gets a list of hits online.

Re: Lacto Fermentation For Preserving Foods

taken from" cultured food for life "on the acid environment of cultured foods.

This type of preservation happens when
Lactobacilli, a good bacteria found naturally on vegetables,
converts the starches and sugars of the vegetables into lactic
acid, a natural preservative that inhibits the growth of harmful
bacteria. Lactic acid makes the environment surrounding the
food too acidic for dangerous bacteria to survive, but keeps
the acid at a level in which good bacteria thrive,


and on salt:

If you’re using kefir whey, you
can omit the salt if you’d
like. It’s not necessary for safe fermentation as above, but the
salt will keep your vegetables crunchy; without it, they will
be soft and limp.

You better cut out the "gross" wine, beer, pickles,yogurt out of your diet.


Maybe I can shed some light on your ignorance.

Many of you have probably never heard of
lacto-fermentation. This type of preservation happens when
Lactobacilli, a good bacteria found naturally on vegetables,
converts the starches and sugars of the vegetables into lactic
acid, a natural preservative that inhibits the growth of harmful
bacteria.

hetero lacto bacteria craps out alcohol as a by product of digestion. Think about that next time you tip up a frosty beer. Your drinking lacto crap.

Re: Lacto Fermentation For Preserving Foods

I know how it works. It still sounds gross to me. It was just a comment and not really worth the ignorant comment. Geez talk about thin skin. I thought it was funny.

Oh I didnt realize you were being funny. I just figured you were ignorant as to what lacto-fermentation was and got a picture of dairy products or something. I still dont get the joke.

Re: Lacto Fermentation For Preserving Foods

I only said it sounded gross and it still does IMHO. If you feel insulted by that, you missed the point. My apologies for your ignorance.
