Why You’ll Love Organic Sauerkraut
Whether it’s paired with hearty bratwurst, tossed into a fresh salad for some extra tang, or piled high on top of a tasty sandwich, good sauerkraut is a total gamechanger. And it doesn’t get much better than Eden Foods Organic Sauerkraut, an authentic recipe made from family farmed organic cabbage that’s hand-harvested at its peak.
Eden Foods has generations of experience in the kraut business, using traditional fermenting methods and trusted packaging procedures to give their product amazing character and taste. Not only does this organic sauerkraut contain zero additives or preservatives, it also comes in a 32 oz. glass jar so you don’t have to worry about any nasty chemicals seeping into your food, but can focus on enjoying it instead.
The history of sauerkraut
Although many might conjure up images of German sausages when hearing the word “sauerkraut,” the food was actually first consumed more than 2,000 years ago by Chinese laborers building the Great Wall. Back then, sauerkraut was made only of shredded cabbage that was fermented in rice wine. Historians believe that it was then brought to Europe roughly 1,000 years later by emperor Genghis Khan. And from there, it became a staple in Germany and The Netherlands where it has morphed into the sauerkraut many know and love today.
Eden Foods Organic Sauerkraut is made in the same traditional way. Cabbage is picked at the peak of freshness and is cored, washed, sliced, and fermented with just a dash of sea salt. While it might seem like fermented foods are having a bit of a moment lately (see kombucha and kimchi), civilizations have actually been consuming these items for ages because of the great nutritional value.
The health benefits of sauerkraut
Sauerkraut is put through the process of lacto-fermentation—which basically means that natural bacteria feeds on the sugars and starches present in a food to create lactic acid. This process preserves the food (and its nutrients), and makes it more digestible because of the existence of tons of probiotics, which is perhaps the biggest claim to fame for fermented foods like kraut.
Fermentation involves mixing in a starter culture with the food in a low-oxygen container. The container is then left alone at room temperature for a few days, or even weeks depending on the recipe. This cool, oxygen-deprived jar is the perfect place for bacteria like lactobacilli—a common strain found in many probiotic pills—to grow. Although bacteria often gets a bad rap, it’s not all bad. In fact, allowing healthy bacteria like probiotics to multiply and flourish is completely safe, and eating fermented foods is one of the easiest ways to get your gut health on point.
Probiotics are an amazing resource for nearly everyone, but if you’re struggling with digestive issues, depression, or skin problems, then you should especially take note. Probiotics are the key to a functioning gut, happy brain, and beautiful skin. In fact, probiotics are naturally found in the body, but the use of antibiotics often kills off strains and disturbs the balance of bacteria in the lining of the gut. To restore order and stay healthy, consuming probiotic-rich foods like Eden Foods Organic Sauerkraut will go a long way toward overall wellness.
What to eat with Eden Foods Organic Sauerkraut
Sauerkraut is an incredibly versatile food. Spread some on a plain sandwich for even more potent taste, toss a handful into salad for more health power, serve on top of scrambled eggs for a nutritious breakfast, or simply use as a condiment just like you would ketchup, mayo, and mustard.
While sauerkraut does have a unique taste, it pairs surprisingly well with a variety of different foods. Try a little at a time on any of these suggested recipes to see what you like best.
Something as rich and savory as a meatball bake needs a cool and refreshing side dish to go with it. Lighten up this recipe with a bed of sauerkraut (instead of the recommended zucchini noodles), or add just a little of the cabbage on top of each serving as you plate it. Eden Foods Organic Sauerkraut will cool down the spicy, flavorful tomato sauce and add a whole new dimension to the final taste.
This Paleo-friendly breakfast utilizes caramelized onions, delectable sweet potatoes, and a medley of different spices, including nutmeg, parsley, and thyme. Add a little bit of kraut to intensify the flavors even more—a slightly sour taste goes a long way in amplifying all the standard veggies in this Spanish tortilla.
This delightful salad is the perfect pick for any family dinner. It’s packed full of savory goodness that can offset heavy meals or add something to a simple array. Brussels sprouts and radicchio give this slaw tons of crunch, while the tangy apple dressing (made with apple cider vinegar) pulls it all together. Add in Eden Foods Organic Sauerkraut for an extra layer, and of course, to make it even healthier!
These delightful little vegan patties are a great snack on their own or used as the main component in a pita sandwich for lunch or dinner. Made with almond flour, tahini, coconut aminos, onion, carrots, chickpeas, and a number of spices, they only take 30 minutes to prepare. Add them to a pita pocket with some parsley, cucumbers, and yogurt sauce, and swap in saukerkraut for a more wholesome and mouthwatering combo.

Pretty Tasty but Gassy
I love fermented foods. They're how I get my probiotics. I'm going back to Trader Joe's brand, though, as it doesn't cause the bloat I get from the Eden kraut.
I cannot express enough how wonderful this company is ! I ordered a very heavy order of items in glass, 24 pounds. Not only was the shipping free, but not even one of the jars were broken on arrival. I am so thankful and so impressed with you all!!!
Oh sooooo yummy!!!
- Liz Mettlen
I used to make my own on a regular basis but don't have a lot of time. This brand is so good I eat it right out of the jar!!!
the best brand I have found so far! I can't stop eating it right out of the jar - best taste!
I love sauerkraut...and, short of making my own this is the best I've tasted since childhood. As good as grandma's homemade!
Great for a Healthy Gut
A great source of probiotics and tastes great with a variety of dishes.
Awesome so glad to find this product as I cannot find it locally!!
Eden's Organic Sauerkraut
Great food! Tastes good and keeps in the fridge.
BEST flavor....nice and tangy. Not harsh or bland at all. No after effects either!!
This organic sauerkraut has a really good taste. Enjoyed it with some sausage and caraway seeds.
Better than ANY other kraut
I thought it seemed silly at first to buy organic sauerkraut, but it truly is SO much better than any other brand. Not salty-- light and delicious!
I thought the sauerkraut had really good flavor. I will definitely but it again.
This product is so tasty. I thought it was going to be super salty but it's not. Enjoy it!
This sauerkraut is perfect on veggie burgers, topped on a side salad, or added to a rice bowl. It's so fresh and light! Yum!
This Eden kraut is great!
If there is a better (store bought) sauerkraut, I don't know about it. This delivers the same joy that I find in the kapusta at all of the best Polish festivals. I will be purchasing more!
I was a little leery to try this. I'm so glad I did. This taste amazing. I have eaten it with meat but also by itself. I will be ordering more and stocking up so I don't run out!
Love love it
Great tasting. I feel great knowing it is organically grown! Fermented foods are awesome!
Wonderful probiotic food that is both organic and sold in a glass container.
Good but really stinky!
The fragrance was so offensive each time I took off the lid that I had to give the almost full jar away. Good kraut but I just couldn't tolerate the pungent smell. It really made me loose my appetite even though I heard the more pungent the fragrance is the better the quality.
I really like this kraut, and not just because it's organic. Adds flavor to so many dishes. & no sugar....just water & sea salt. A great find.
The 2nd best sauerkraut of my life
The first best sauerkraut was from a farm woman in scarf and beard selling whole pickled cabbages in a Balkan city. The smell and taste of those were like a buttery cheese, addictive... Especially with paprika!
This sauerkraut comes in second. It is tart, clean, and tangy, perfect saltiness. It makes a mean goulash. I even saved the liquid and used it to make new sauerkraut out of fresh chopped cabbages. This stuff is amazing for anyone who wants more probiotics & fermented foods in their diet.
Eden Foods organic sauerkraut
This brand of sauerkraut is vastly better than most. We love it!
I like it because it's mild
Bought for my husband, but because its a milder that normal sauerkraut taste, I like it too.
Eden Foods Sauerkraut
Great taste. Awesome price at Thrive!
Love this brand in all products. Sauerkraut was delicious fixed with grass fed beef sausages.
in lieu of making my own, this is fabulous
I eat a lot of kraut to keep my digestive juices cranking. Very happy with this brand and the price is right. I will be ordering more.
My husband absolutely loves this sauerkraut!
Great way to amp your good bacteria
Super friendly taste and a great way to add on some good bacteria to your gut !
Very good Sauerkraut. Delicious!
Very good Sauerkraut. Delicious!
Love this sauerkraut.
This is by far the best sauerkraut I have ever eaten
The best sauerkraut!
My favorite. Why? Simple: Organic! Naturally fermented - so no vinegar - only cabbage, salt and water. All sitting in a glass jar (not a can). Nature's best probiotic. And super delicious. great value as well
Tastes great, and it's a HUGE jar! Great deal!!
Best Sauerkraut Ever
I am in love with this sauerkraut and the price is so much better than whole foods. I seriously blow through this stuff crazy fast.
- Jacob & Kiki
When I got this in I just started eating it out of the jar and couldn't stop eating it. It is very good. I haven't tried it with anything yet but I am sure it will be yummy with other things too.
delicious and easy to prepare.
I enjoyed this sauerkraut. It had good flavor. The texture was soft, the way I like it. I would recommend it. And it was fermented naturally!
edens food organic sour kraut
great for us and great taste
Kick in' Kraut
We like to add it to our sandwiches for some zing!
!!! MUST BUY !!!
Outstanding ORGANIC flavor!!!
I keep this in stock at home. It is the best canned sauerkraut I have tasted.
Yummy. My family will no longer eat the other brand I used to buy locally.
The "best" sauerkraut, you'll be buying more ....
This product is the most delicious and addicting fermented vegetable I've ever tasted, let alone its probiotic content. I'm ordering more .....
I bought this because it was organic and the price was less than what I would pay for at the grocery store for a non-organic brand. I wasn't even aware of the health benefits it contained, such as probiotics, until after I read more reviews about the product.
The taste was great! The health benefits were even greater. However, the texture was less crunchy from those I've tasted before. Not a big deal, just a noticeable difference. I will continue to purchase.

Every Couple Months
Every couple months I have a craving for sauerkraut and I fall back on this jar. I eat it on sandwiches mostly with wheat-meat and avocado mayo but, sometimes I eat it with sausages. The fermentation is what makes it awesome! I love the salt too! Organic is what makes this jar different from others like it!
What I didn't like was that I had to buy a large jar. I wish I could buy it in a smaller quantity. Oh well, it just means I need to eat more!
- R. Evans
Good on the stomach
Given that this product is a probiotic, it is great on the stomach! It also tastes delicious, I put it on just about everything from burgers to soups! I always liked sauerkraut but never enough to consistently buy it. It is now a staple in my house because this brand makes it so well!
- G. Webb
Hooked for life!
Wow. I would never have thought that I could like sauerkraut, but this stuff is really good. I was only eating sauerkraut for the prebiotics, but I could eat this just for itself.
I love sauerkraut and bought a case of this because it was organic and reasonably priced. I love it and eat it all the time. If you like sauerkraut, give it a try!
Kind of mushy and not crunchy like other brands I have tried. Did not see it is pasteurized and therefore does not contain the good bacteria. That was a big reason I purchased it. Too many other better choices to choose this one again. Disappointed in this brand.
This brand might taste good but it is pasteurized to make it shelf stable, which kills all the live cultures. So buy it for taste not for the healthful benefits that come with fermented vegetables with their live cultures still intact.
This is the best jarred sauerkraut I've ever had! And I used to make my own. It's probably because it's organic. It tastes to good!
