Sauerkraut is not only delicious (at least to some people!) – it’s also amazing for gut health. It’s loaded with probiotics and it’s really nutritious. Today, I’m going to tell you all there is to know about the Costco Wildbrine Raw Organic Sauerkraut!
The Costco Wildbrine Raw Organic Sauerkraut has been at my local warehouse for quite a while. I actually reviewed it a while ago and decided it was time for an update now (spring 2022). Other foods loaded with probiotics from Costco include the Costco GTS Raw & Organic Gingerade Kombucha, Costco Greenhouse Organic Probiotic Lemonade and the Costco Kirkland Signature Organic Greek Yogurt.
Location in Store
You can find this sauerkraut in the refrigerated deli section at Costco, near the fresh pasta and cheese. The item number is 1098785.
This is flavorful! I’m not sure if it’s in a good way though, as it’s pretty strong tasting! If you don’t know what sauerkraut is, it’s fermented, salty green cabbage. The sauerkraut is very tart, salty and also has a pretty noticeable garlic flavor.
The texture is slightly crunchy and not soggy or gooey. A small portion is enough for me because it’s so flavorful!
For the one-and-a-half-liter container of sauerkraut, the price is $11.49. That’s amazing because I’ve seen this at some specialty grocery stores for much more.
The Wildbrine Sauerkraut needs to be kept in the refrigerator and the best before date is about seven months from the date when it was purchased. The container is a bit large, so by the time you’re at the bottom of your sauerkraut, you’ll need an extra-long spoon.
Sauerkraut can be used in a variety of ways. It’s well-known as a hot dog condiment or a sausage side, but you can also have it with chicken, burgers, sandwiches, etc. – basically however you like. I know a lot of adults like sauerkraut, but I’m not so sure about kids!
Two tablespoons contains five calories, zero grams of fat, 260 milligrams of sodium, one gram of sugar, one gram of fibre, two grams of carbohydrates and 0.4 grams of protein. This is really, really low in calories, fat, carbs and sugar! You can enjoy a lot of sauerkraut without feeling much guilt, unless you’re watching your sodium intake.
The ingredients list is super short and sweet: cabbage, sea salt and garlic! This is gluten-free as well as vegan. I absolutely love and appreciate that it comes in a BPA-free package!
Taste: I don’t like sauerkraut, so I can’t give it a fair rating. My dad who loves it gives this specific brand from Costco a 9/10.
Give it a try!
Personally, I’m not a fan of sauerkraut. I feel like people who enjoy it would love the Wildbrine Sauerkraut from Costco though!
