I’ve seen the Wildbrine Raw Organic Sauerkraut at Costco for at least six months now so I finally decided to pick it up to try! I don’t eat a lot of sauerkraut but I’ve read and heard about how good fermented foods are for gut health so I thought I’d try it out.

Taste

This if FLAVORFUL! I’m not sure if it’s in a good way though haha as it is pretty strong tasting! If you don’t know what sauerkraut is, it’s fermented salty green cabbage. It’s very tart, salty and also has a pretty prominent garlic flavor. It’s slightly crunchy. A tiny bit packs a ton of flavor. Do I love the taste of sauerkraut? Not really. Does this product taste like something sauerkraut lovers would probably love? I think so. It’s organic which is always a plus!

Cost

I paid $10.99 Canadian for 1.5 liter container of sauerkraut.

Convenience

Perfect to go with sausages or on hot dogs. The best before date is about seven months from the date I purchased the sauerkraut. It needs to be kept refrigerated.

Nutrition

Two tablespoons is five calories, zero grams of fat, 260mg of sodium, one gram of sugar, one gram of fibre, two grams of carbohydrates and 0.4 grams of protein. The ingredients list is just cabbage, sea salt and garlic.

Despite not loving the taste of sauerkraut I’ll probably continue to eat little bits of this to see if it improves my gut health at all!

Taste: I have to be honest, I can’t rate this because I don’t like sauerkraut in the first place but I think it’s probably a high quality, descent sauerkraut.

Cost: 7/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 10/10

What do you eat sauerkraut with?!

  1. Hi, I live in Ontario and I haven’t seen Wildbrine sauerkraut anywhere in any of the Costco stores I visited. Nor could I find it online. Could you please tell me where you found it, thanks

  2. Most supermarket sauerkraut is pasteurized and has no probiotic effect. Just the unpastuerized type like Wildbrine. If it needs refrigeration it’s likely unpasteurized.

  3. Other than making my own (which I’ve gotten lazy about doing), this is the real deal. I love this sauerkraut. Many people think fermenting in vinegar will give you probiotic benefits but it doesn’t. You have to ferment in salt water. Granted, you’re paying a lot for something that costs little to make, but you get a lot for your money. I hope Costco never stops selling this!

  4. I just purchased from Costco, I am a sauerkraut Guy and this is by Far the Best! vastly superior to Floss, and even Edens organic, I eat a few (Forkfulls) a day for my Gut and overall Digestive health the problem is in the USA, Antibiotics destroys our guts and the bread which I don’t eat anymore, contains mold inhibitors especially all the fast food restaurants For a Good Gut I highly recommend eating Wildbrine Raw Organic Sauerkraut. P.S it will keep you regular OHH YEAHHH!!
