Lacto Fermentation as a Food Preservation Method
The traditional practice of lacto fermentation is much less demanding on the environment than other food preservation methods, which often consume large amounts of energy for pasteurization or sterilization, and can involve chemical preservatives.
To reduce energy consumption still further, the fermenting room in Caldwell's production facility was built into the ground, enabling a constant temperature range to be maintained with only minimal additional heating or cooling.
The lightweight BPA-free vacuum packs have several advantages over the standard glass or plastic jars, including:
- Less packaging material per volume of contents.
- Reduced transportation impacts of both empty and filled packages.
- Less storage space and energy for cooling in warehouses and stores.
Caldwell use only certified organic vegetables, herbs, and spices in their recipes. This ensures that all the ingredients are grown without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides, helping to preserve the health of our soil and water for future generations.
