Pickles, Sauerkraut & the Gut Microbiome with Dr. Andrew Flachs

August 16, 2021

This week we dig into a fascinating study of the microbial composition of fermented foods and how they influence the gut microbiome! Our guest is Dr. Andrew Flachs, an anthropologist who researches food and agriculture systems, exploring genetically modified crops, heirloom seeds, and our own microbiomes. We also discuss the rich cultural heritage behind some of our favorite ferments and a simple recipe to making your own ginger beer at home!
