at what temperature will sauerkraut bacteria die?

Created January 20, 2013 at 3:28 PM

I ferment my own sauerkraut, me & my kids just just eat it straight out of the jar...My partner & step-children aren't so keen....i was thinking of a way to introduce some to their diets without such an impact, i know that sauerkraut bacteria are sensitive to heat & wouldn't ever cook it. My idea is to add it to foods, salads are out of the question as they can still see & taste it so i was thinking of stews & soups etc, just throwing a bit in right before i serve the food. I'm wondering what the max temperature the bacteria can withstand before my kraut becomes just cabbage & carrots again. Thanks in advance

I'd wager there's likely benefit even from cooked kraut.

Thank you very much Matt, you have answered my question...thanks everyone else for your input. For the record don't think for one minute that fermented food is the answer to everything bad, i personally class kraut as a superior food though (compared to unfermented veg) like i do with organs & broth (compared to regular muscle meat)..so i do think that myself & my family would be better off with them than without them...I may come across a bit finicky with my questions but nothing could be further from the truth...i just believe in maximizing me & my family's nutrient intake where possible.

I've gotten more benefit from bone broth than I have from fermented food. But fermented foods consistently give me a 3 or 4 on the Bristol Stool Chart, regardless of how much fiber I'm taking in.

Very true. I like fermented foods in spite of the fact that they're lauded as a cure for cancer. I think the hype of fermented foods may have gotten counter-productive outside WAPF circles.

Don't lie Matt, they will make you invincible! Hey, even that Sandor Katz fella makes the point they are simply a healthy addition. I look at bone broth in the same fashion. And liver/shellfish. Each in its own right is "just healthy", but like many things I believe the whole to be greater than the sum of its parts. Alone each is healthy...together they work in synergy to amplify each effect toward better health. Least thats my view on the whole of it.

Fermented foods are a little too hyped I think. They aren't magic, just healthy.

Look at pasturization protocols...

145F for 30 minutes. (VAT) 161F for 15-20 seconds. (HTST) 275F for 1 second. (UHT)

Toss it in right before serving to get it warmed up, you'll have minimized die-off.
