Fermented foods are high in probiotics, but beware of this one!

by Hon Lee on April 7, 2014

Fermented foods such as kimchi and raw sauerkraut are high in probiotics which add good bacteria to the body's stomach flora to help digestion. However, stay away from Tempeh, made from fermented soybeens and often used as a meat substitute. It's been associated with a salmonella outbdreak among 100 people in five sttes last year.  The tempeh was made from contaminated ingredients imported from Indonesia, accordingh to researches at the North Carolina Division of Public Health.
