We often get asked what makes The Beauty Chef different – and one of the reasons is undoubtedly our exclusive Flora Culture™ bio-fermentation process.
Flora Culture™ is The Beauty Chef’s unique bio-fermentation process, which involves introducing a mother culture made up of a variety of Lactobacillus species and beneficial yeasts into the ingredients to ferment for a period of 6–8 weeks. These beautiful bacteria essentially break down the ingredients, making the nutrients more bioavailable – and the bio-fermentation process also helps to neutralise any anti-nutrients like phytic acid, found in grains and legumes.
What’s amazing about this process too is that as a result, a natural, broad-spectrum probiotic is created. Unlike your standard probiotic supplement that you might find at the supermarket however – which may only carry a couple of species or strains – The Beauty Chef products carry multiple, natural species and strains as a result of this bio-fermentation process. These lacto-fermented ingredients also act as prebiotics – which feed the good bacteria in your gut.
