This is a question for Wardeh:

What foods increase their nutrition with fermentation? Someone told me that one fermented food, I think cabbage, increased it's vitamin C by 10 times after fermentation. Can you think of others or confirm this idea?
Thanks

All foods experience increased nutrition with fermentation. There are slight differences because each type of fermentation may use a different organism or organisms and the foods themselves are different.

I can confirm a huge increase in Vitamin C in sauerkraut!

Others...
incredible reduction in lactose when fermenting dairy
production of vitamin K2 when fermenting soy as in natto
