Show notes:

In an attempt to answer Aisha’s question about whether sauerkraut (or kimchi) goes bad I’ve done a bit of reading and haven’t found much. Most evidence suggests that unopened and submerged in brine it is good almost indefinitely. However, once it is open I haven’t seen much evidence that it goes “bad,” but it might not be as pleasant.

Because it is fermented it is unlikely to experience much rot, so I would judge by color, smell and your own personal comfort level. Obviously anything with a physical growth or mold should be tossed.

If anyone else has any insight please share.

    I’ve been thinking of making my own yogurt, and doing like a designer probiotic coctail mixture of many types of probiotics out there..

    Do you see any issue with mixing different probiotics strains, including non-dairy types (iFlora, Pearls , Flora-3, etc).. or will they fight or possibly even die in the dairy, heated environment?

  2. Aisha says:

    Thank you so much for looking into my question, Darya!

  3. my girlfriend is getting tested for celiac and I’m wondering if probiotics would help her digestion system or if that’s a whole different problem that would not benefit from probiotics?

    I’m presently taking Brenda Watson’s Renew Life probiotic supplement. It has 30billion cultures in it with 10 strains. This was after watching her presentation on PBS.
    I was hoping you would shed some light on dosage amount. I see now that the science is just not there, however, for a recommendation.
    Since then I’ve seen two other opinions on the subject including Monica Renegal and Joel Fuhrman, MD. Seems like I’m taking in way too many cultures with the Renew Life supplement.
    Do you have any recommendation whatsoever in this regard? At his point I’m thinking that less supplement is better. Thanks.

What do you think?
