When we started, our mission was simply to make a better starter to improve results when fermenting vegetables. We went all the way back to Cutting Edge Culturesthe drawing board and into the laboratory. We identified species of bacteria and probiotics that occur naturally and have demonstrated efficacy in catalyzing the fermentation of vegetables. We studied the roles that each play in the process and we realized that the best overall results were obtained when we used a combination of three different bacteria, as each plays a unique role at a particular stage of the process. This was only the beginning – we then combined these cultures in numerous different blends and tested, tested and tested. Eventually we achieved the superior results we knew were possible.
