VH Probiotics

"We grow our own food and eat it alive!"

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. Our stomachs are full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.

You can find probiotics in supplements and foods. Doctors often suggest them to help with digestive problems.

Yoghurt (Curd) is a common example of probiotic food. It requires a starter to be prepared. The yoghurt is the starter culture and the milk is the raw material. In this case, a little yoghurt is added to a large quantity of milk, and a new product is created. This is done when the small amount of bacteria in the yoghurt consumes the milk and produces acids and gases.

"While yoghurt is commonly used, it is made of dairy and therefore NOT VEGAN."

However, there are many other starter cultures that are used along with countless other cruelty free foods to produce a wide variety of delicious products. We have imported starter cultures from countries across the world for YOU.

"Living food for the living body"

There are innumerable number of cruelty free techniques to make the tangy lactic acid taste of yoghurt blossom on our taste buds. We use 5 probiotic ingredients that require different strains of starter cultures native to 3 different countries.

  • Kombucha Tea
  • Water Kefir
  • Tempeh
  • Sourdough Bread
  • Sauerkraut

Kombucha

  • From Russia comes Kombucha, an old and beneficial fermented beverage. Delicious, too!
  • It is sweet and sour and naturally carbonated by fermenting gases.
  • It is fermented using a very unique starter called the SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast)

Health benefits of Kombucha

  • Kombucha is rich in probiotics which contain a good source of healthy bacteria and yeast.
  • Cancer Prevention, Arthritis treatment, improved digestion, and immune booster.
  • As the culture of bacteria and yeast consume the sugar, they produce vitamin B and three kinds of acids: lactic acid, acetic acid(vinegar) and glucuronic acid.
  • Our liver produces small quantities of glucuronic acid. It binds toxins and helps flush them out of your body.
  • Kombucha contains significant amounts of this glucuronic acid making it a powerful detoxifier.
  • Kombucha is the only natural source of glucuronic acid, other than your liver.

"Kombucha is the only natural source of glucuronic acid, other than your liver."

Water Kefir

  • Water Kefir is a probiotic beverage made with water kefir grains.
  • Water kefir grains can be used to culture sugar water, juice, or coconut water.
  • Coconut Kefir and other naturally flavoured sodas are consumed for healing issues like leaky gut.
  • A combination of kefir and sourdough is used to create bubbly, fluffy, probiotic sandwich rolls, pancakes and burger buns.

Health benefits of Kefir

  • Water kefir is rich in probiotics which contain a good source of healthy bacteria and yeast.
  • Cancer Prevention, Arthritis treatment, improved digestion, and immune booster.

Tempeh

Tempeh is a soy product made by fermenting soybeans into a cake form. This is a high protein superfood, rich in enzymes and has no cholesterol. Tempeh products such as tempeh pasta, tempeh pad thai, and tempeh masala dosas are the biggest sellers at VeganHeat.

Health benefits of Tempeh

  • Rich in probiotics
  • The microflora that lives in fermented foods creates a protective lining in the intestines and shields it against pathogenic factors, such as salmonella and E.coli.
  • Increases bone density.
  • Copper, another mineral present in tempeh, also plays an important role in growing bones, in addition to aiding connective tissue and muscle growth.
  • The calcium provided by tempeh is involved in the growth and maintenance of bones. Calcium, together with other essential minerals like vitamin K and vitamin D, is needed to maintain bone mineral density and prevent weak, brittle bones and fractures.
  • The isoflavones in tempeh are known to serve as a natural remedy for menopausal relief.
  • Provides muscle-building protein.
  • Niacin in Tempeh reduces cholesterol.
  • Contains Diabetes-fighting Manganese.
  • Treats Cancer and Inflammatory Diseases

Sourdough Bread

Sourdough bread from the fermentation of dough using naturally occurring lactobacilli and yeast. It has a mildly sour taste not present in most breads made with baker's yeast. It also has better inherent keeping qualities than other breads, due to the lactic acid produced by the lactobacilli.

Sauerkraut

Sauerkraut is fermented cabbage in spices and condiments. It is a tangy and tasty, healthy treat added as a topping on our probiotic dishes.

We use a variety of pickled items, such as kimchi, tsukemono and pickled cucumbers in our probiotic dishes.

Health benefits of Sauerkraut

  • Probiotics are healthy bacteria that can actually improve your production and regulation of key hormones like insulin, ghrelin and leptin.
  • They're even capable of raising immune function and protecting cognitive functioning.
  • The best sources include kefir, cultured veggies such as sauerkraut or kimchi, kombucha and other fermented foods.
  • The health benefits of sauerkraut include its ability to enhance digestive health, increase blood circulation, protect heart health, provide energy, stimulate the immune system, strengthen bones, reduce the overall cholesterol levels, eliminate inflammation, protect against certain cancers, and even improve vision and skin health.
  • All our sauerkraut is live and freshly homemade.
