    There’s a sort of mock table salt available with potassium replacing the sodium. Is that worth taking? If so, how much per day?

    Does the quantity of good bacteria vary by fermented food type and manufacturer? (Surely it must.) Do you have a list of “Top 20″ commonly available fermented foods and brands? I know the information is sprinkled throughout the blog.

    To ask it another way, are Yakult, natto, and other “exotic” fermented foods really worth it, or can I just eat some pickles and sauerkraut?

    Seth: No I have no such list. I try to get a range of bacteria. The bigger the range the better.

    Hi Seth,

    Have you seen this article? :

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/08/health/study-points-to-new-culprit-in-heart-disease.html?smid=fb-share&_r=1&

    might work into your idea about the importance of bacteria and how fermented foods are healthy.
