Sauerkraut and a low sodium diet???

  • posted by CoeliacSal

    My GP suggested I try the clever guts diet as she said “it can’t do any harm” and suggested using fermented foods including sauerkraut.

    I am concerned about the amount of salt and the amount of vitamin K. I have to have a low salt and low vitamin K diet. Can I wash the salt from the sauerkraut? I think one portion of commercial sauerkraut (not available at the moment of course) contains more than my day’s salt ration in a single portion of sauerkraut. How much vit K survives the fermenting? Vit K will mess with my INR and I can’t get the regular blood tests at the moment 🙁
