Firefly Kitchens creates naturally fermented foods, including kimchi, krauts and salsas. Unlike other pickled and preserved products, Firefly's fermented foods are completely raw and naturally preserved. During the process of fermentation, "good bacteria" - also known as probiotic bacteria - proliferate, which produces lactic acid. This environment prevents the growth of bad bacteria and keeps the food naturally fresh and preserved without the need for refrigeration. It also creates billions of live probiotics and digestive enzymes that are great for your health!
