Probiotics + Fermentation | Nutrition Class

  • Springhouse 2300 Gottingen Street Halifax, NS, B3K 3B6 Canada (map)

Fermented food and beverages are a potent source of probiotics. We all need these valuable bacteria to promote a healthy digestive system, and immune system. Mainstream processed foods, fried foods, refined sugar and coffee are just a few examples of foods that destroy healthy gut bacteria. Learn about why we need probiotics and how to replenish your supply, in order to support long term wellness. 

Not only are probiotic rich foods great for your health - they can also be delicious! Watch demonstrations and learn how to make sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha and more! Taste samples of everything, and take home the recipes. You'll have all the knowledge you need to maintain a homemade source of affordable probiotics!

Registration is required, reserve your spot now! $27+tax per person.

Every class includes an introductory nutrition lesson, opportunities to ask questions, samples for tasting, recipe demonstrations, and an informative handout to take home. Samples and recipes for this class are free from animal products and the following allergens: soy, gluten, dairy, eggs, sesame and peanuts. However, while we do our very best to prevent cross-contamination, the Springhouse kitchen is not entirely free from soy, gluten, or sesame. If you have a serious allergy of any kind, please contact us.

Registration is required in advance and space is limited. All classes are non-refundable; however, they are transferrable for no additional fee (if someone is taking your place, please let us know). Thank you for your understanding.
