It is rare to find a product that retains all the beneficial properties and biologically active substances during long-term storage. In sour cabbage, the vitamin-mineral composition remains unchanged for 2-3 months (subject to storage conditions - in a cold place).
One of the main useful properties of sauerkraut is the content of a large dose of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) - a powerful antioxidant and vitamin responsible for cellular health. Regular inclusion of sauerkraut dishes in the menu helps prevent vitamin deficiency and increase immunity, which is especially important in the cold season.
But this is not the only health benefit of sauerkraut. In addition to vitamin C, the product is rich in carotene, B, P, PP vitamins, coarse dietary fiber, and minerals: sodium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iodine, iron, zinc and selenium, enzymes, and organic acids.
