Second Only To Mustard

There's a lot more to Sauerkraut than the fame of being second only to mustard as the most popular condiment for hot dogs. Cabbage growing and sauerkraut processing have come a long way since Chinese laborers fermented their cabbage in wine over 2000 years ago to supplement their diet of rice. Americans today annually consume 387 million pounds of sauerkraut, or roughly 1.5 pounds per person per year.

Packs A Punch

Did you know that Sauerkraut is fat free, cholesterol free, low in calories, an excellent source of Vitamin C, lactobacilli (even more than yogurt), and a good source of dietary fiber and contains other nutrients such as potassium, protein, calcium, iron, thiamin (BI), riboflavin (B2), and niacin (B3).

Like A Fine Wine

Eden Organic Sauerkraut is made from the finest cabbage, grown in nutrient rich organic soil, carefully tended, harvested, and fermented by the Hirzel family of northern Ohio. Our organic cabbage is hand harvested at the peak of its flavor, cored, washed and shredded. The cabbage is then placed in large cypress vats with Eden's finest sea salt and fermented for six weeks. During the fermentation process the Hirzel's tend the vats of cabbage in a manner similar to a fine winery. Over seventy years of experience, traditional methods, and one family processing from soil to jar gives Eden Sauerkraut its homemade, Old World character.

"A growing body of research shows that
pesticides and other contaminants are more prevalent in the foods we eat, in our bodies, and in the environment than we thought. And studies show that by eating organic foods, you can reduce your exposure to the potential health risks associated with those chemicals."
Consumer Reports, February 2006

The USDA is getting some heat for inadequately enforcing regulations on genetically engineered (GE) crops. But this time the heat's not from environmental groups, it's from the agency's own auditor. According to a two year long safety audit by the United States Office of Inspector General, the USDA "lacks basic information about the field test sites it approves and is responsible for monitoring, including where and how the crops are being grown, and what becomes of them at the end of the field test."
