Fermented food, heating and other questions
I have severe IBS-D and it has been suggested (from a nurse) that I eat more fermented food. I don't have any home made, I have to buy it. I'm looking in to fermenting stuff, my cabbage is almost ready. Next spring I will have more to ferment.
Question 1: For now, since I am buying from the grocery store, does canned kraut have the same benefits? Should I buy the kraut in the cooler?
I do seem to do better if I eat a little kraut.
Question 2: Does heating fermented food kill the beneficial bacteria? I don't like it cold, room temps are OK.
Question 3: Cheeses are supposed to be good, what is best and can they be heated? I love any kind of cheese, but sometimes I want it melted.
