TORONTO, Oct. 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Ann Payne's Caveman Foods Ltd has announced they will provide up to twelve cases (or 144 individual servings) of their raw, unpasteurized drink, shipped free to Canadian universities or labs for studying the link between unpasteurized fermented foods and gut bacteria.
Gourmet foodies have long been searching out the fresh, unpasteurized drink known as water kefir for its taste and unparalleled ability to combine with food, but what is less generally known is that unpasteurized fermented drinks also have the ability to control sugar cravings.
Is there a link between unpasteurized fermented foods and gut bacteria?
"The Weston A. Price organization in the USA has done a terrific job of explaining to people how raw, fermented foods help maintain a healthy weight and a strong immune system," said Leslie Payne-Zimmer, of Toronto-based Ann Payne's Caveman Foods, Ltd, "and we have had anecdotes from our customers telling us that our drink has helped them lose those last few pounds. However, until the recent research into the effect of diet on specific gut bacteria, the connection between controlling a sweet tooth and our drink has not been fully tested under controlled conditions."
"The focus of our facility is really on brewing a high-quality, gourmet, non-alcoholic beverage," noted the company's owner, Leslie Payne-Zimmer, "If we can give back to the community by helping science, of course we would be thrilled to do our part."
