Cultured foods have been an integral part of the healthiest diets for thousands of years and are essential to a long, healthy life. They give birth to a lavish inner ecosystem, building resistance to infections, and greatly enhancing digestion. They are ideal for appetite and weight control, very alkaline and cleansing to the blood.

Veggie Culture Starter is ideal for pregnant women, ensuring a healthy birth canal for her newborn child who will rely on her to provide healthy bacteria. Children with autism and ADD benefit from the culture as well. Cultured vegetables help take away cravings for sweets, soft drinks, bread, pasta, dairy, fruit and other expansive foods not allowed on the diet.

Research suggests that Lactobacillus plantarum has an ability to reverse gut disbyosis, like IBS, Crohn's Disease and Colitis.

Cultured Vegetable Starter contains the following beneficial bacteria:

  • Lb. plantarum
  • Pediococcus acidolactici
  • Leu. cremoris
  • inulin

Each box contains 6 packets which can be used to make cultured vegetables, cultured whipped butter, and creme fraiche.

An Easy Beginner's Recipe


  • 3 heads green cabbage, shredded in a food processor
  • Several cabbage leaves
  • 6 carrots, large shredded in a food processor
  • 3-inch piece ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 packet of Body Ecology® Veggie Culture Starter
  • ½ cup warm (90°) water


  1. Dissolve Veggie Culture Starter with warm water. Add some form of sugar to feed the starter (try Rapadura, Sucanat, honey, Agave, or EcoBloom). Let the starter/sugar mixture sit for about 20 minutes or longer while the L. Plantarum and other bacteria wake up and begin enjoying the sugar. Put aside.
  2. Combine shredded cabbage, carrots, ginger, and garlic in a large bowl.
  3. Remove several cups of this mixture and put into a blender.
  4. Add enough filtered water to make a “brine” the consistency of thick juice. Add culture starter mixture from step 1. Blend well and then add brine back into first mixture. Stir well.
  5. Pack mixture down into a glass or stainless steel container. Use your fist, a wooden dowel, or a potato masher to pack veggies tightly.
  6. Fill container almost full, but leave about 2 inches of room at the top for veggies to expand.
  7. Roll up several cabbage leaves into a tight “log” and place them on top to fill the remaining 2-inch space. Clamp jar closed.
  8. Let veggies sit at about a 70° room temperature for at least 3 days. A week is even better. Refrigerate to slow down fermentation. Enjoy!

5.0 Very nice for veggie ferments by Judy
Great flavor; makes a very nice product. (Posted on 5/20/2017)
5.0 Love it! by Beverly
I've been eating cultured veggies made with this starter for a few years now. If I run out I really miss them and notice a difference in my digestive health when I get back to them. So I try not to run out! The flavor is wonderful, and a great compliment to most any meal. (Posted on 5/7/2017)
4.0 Making our special kraut by Ginger
My husband and I make kraut every few weeks. We make about a gallon and a half, total. We use 2 packets of culture starter. This works great, unlike the kefir starter, that hardly worked at all. (Posted on 4/12/2017)
5.0 Wouldn't make cultured veggies without it. by Marge
It is part of my cultured veggies with Ecobloom. It's great. (Posted on 3/10/2017)

The Body Ecology Culture Starter works every time for fermenting vegetables / coconut meat. (Posted on 3/9/2017)
5.0 Excellent for fermenting! by Kimberly
Used for fermenting my first batch of vegetables! Worked out great! (Posted on 3/5/2017)
5.0 Most Bang for the Buck by Kim
I make Cultured Veggies all the time and sell it to friends for their GERD problems and Eczema and other skin problems. The only Culture Starter I use is Body Ecology. I've looked into competitive brands and their price tag and the volume of starter needed to get the equivalent volume of probiotics into my veggies is cost prohibitive. I'm a loyal customer. (Posted on 2/24/2017)
5.0 Good product by Yana
I've made already three batches of fermented veggies. The first one was without the starter and it did not turn out good. But the following are tasty and I hope full of good bacteria :). (Posted on 2/24/2017)
