We Love Local: Süperkrauts Sauerkraut
It’s no secret that we love locally made foods here at High Falls Food Co-op. That’s why we’re excited to carry Süperkrauts; sauerkraut made in New Paltz, NY. Süperkrauts are always raw, organic, and fermented without heating. They’re unpasteurized and full of vitamins, minerals and fresh pro-biotics. Is it any wonder why we love them?
Süperkrauts was founded by Moni Schifler after a journey to heal her son’s IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) lead her to her great grandmother’s sauerkraut recipe. Moni’s great grandmother with a farmer and sauerkraut maker in Vienna, Austria. She used this knowledge and fermented food legacy to ultimately heal her son through the use of raw vegetables and probiotics. Moni then made it her mission to heal others with her fermented foods, and a business was born.
When making Süperkrauts, Modi adheres to her company’s mission which is to make authentic sauerkraut that is only fermented in glass. Süperkrauts is committed to respecting our planet by using local produce and local suppliers while creating zero waste. 100% of Süperkrauts’ kitchen scraps are composted and sent back to their organic farmers. Süperkrauts is a name you can feel good about purchasing.
Aside from their efforts to heal people through food and to be an ethical, environmentally friendly brand, Süperkrauts is also helping the local community by providing women with employment. Süperkrauts is powered and run nearly 100% by women. That coupled with their use of only the finest certified organic produce New York’s Hudson Valley has to offer, makes us love Süperkrauts even more.
In 2015, Süperkrauts moved into a state of the art dedicated kitchen facility in a certified organic, certified gluten free, certified vegan, certified non-gmo, and certified kosher building. They never produce anything but Süperkraut in their kitchen, so you can count on always getting nothing but this pure probiotic product. Do something “güt for your gut,” pick up a jar of Süperkraut next time you’re at High Falls Food Co-op, or join us on April 21st from 2pm to 5pm and you can sample it in the store!
