Purchased sauerkraut in a jar

Answered on August 19, 2014

Anyone have any insight on the level of probiotics in purchased sauerkraut versus home-made? I know that sauerkraut from a can is "dead" but what about Organic Sauerkraut (jarred) that I buy from a whole foods store? I know that nothing beats homemade, but I just want to make sure that the stuff from a jar isn't dead like the stuff from a can.

Bubbies is the brand I can think of that is in glass and contains live cultures. I'll add that is has to be in the refrigerated section if it's got live cultures.

"Raw" or "unheated" is what you're looking for. If it says "pasteurized" the microbes are gone. Glass is better than cans, but glass does not automatically mean unheated.

Here in NY our Whole Foods carries Hawthorne Valley Farm products and they are solid tasty and good for you. Read the label, do a little research, make sure it's raw. If done properly then they are the same as homemade, just on a bigger scale.

It should be just the cabbage, any other veg added in, maybe a spice or aromatic, salt. I love all of Hawthorne's products but my personal favourite is the Jalapeno 'kraut.
