Fermented foods

Probiotics are the natural preservatives in fermented foods, killing off pathogenic and organisms that also lead to putrefaction; hence they are a good source. Bacteria break down the foods making them more digestible and releasing lactic acid, which prevents the growth of harmful organisms. Lactic acid has also been shown to aid in digestion and encourage the growth of probiotic bacteria in the gut.
