Barrel & Bone is a small artisan food business dedicated to handcrafting delicious, gut healthy foods
At Barrel & Bone we preserve differently, we age our sauerkraut, kimchi and pickles the old fashioned way. We do not use sugary vinegar, instead we favour traditional lactic acid fermentation cultivating the naturally occurring probiotic, gut friendly bacteria with salt, time and patience. We use pink himalayan rock salt in our preserves that contains all the essential minerals your body needs and we only use real ingredients, there are no artificial preservatives or additives in our products. This process has been used for thousands of years and, unlike cooking, it substantially increases the nutritional content of the food.
Our organic milk Kefir is cultured using real Kefir grains to ensure the greatest diversity of natural live bacteria and yeasts to support your microbiome. Kefir is a great source of probiotics, calcium, vitamin K2 and B vitamins like folic acid and one of the best ways to improve your gut health.
Highly nutritious and full of probiotics, fermented foods are a key ingredient to a healthy diet. Research continues to show that maintaining a balanced healthy microbiome is not just essential for the digestion and assimilation of food but also plays a much wider role in human physiology. Overall physical and mental health is greatly effected by the health of your gut which makes up the majority of your immune system and is regulated by the microbes that live there. Live fermented foods are a rich source of the microbes that live in your gut and a great way to maintain gut health. We want to make these foods easily accessible to you.
The problem with killing 99.9 percent of bacteria is that most of them protect us from the few that can make us sick
