HEX Ferments uses the traditional method of fermentation to preserve and transform local, organic produce into nourishing foods – presently: unique sauerkrauts, kimchi, seasonal ferments, and kombucha tea. Fermented foods are in every culture and for thousands of years have been an effective way to preserve the harvest and make foods more digestible while detoxifying and enhancing nutrients. The effect of fermentation transforms foods to make flavors more complex, while adding naturally occurring probiotics to your diet.
HEX Ferments are Maryland-based food alchemists, dedicated to sourcing from local and organic farmers. We believe in creating partnerships with these providers of sustenance to create unique ferments that support our individual health as well as the health of our local foodshed.
HEX Ferments employs a traditional process - we do not use heat or white vinegar - so that our creations are teeming with beneficial bacteria, healthy acids and enzymes. We balance old world quality and flavor with modern interpretations, and choose optimal, nourishing ingredients.
Adding fermented foods into your diet is easy: enjoy them with proteins, on salads and sandwiches, with your morning eggs, or straight from the jar. We know that once you incorporate fermented foods into your diet, you’ll be hungry for more (and so will your mind and body).
The name comes from Hexology folklore that uses signs and symbols to protect relationships, secure harvests, and ward off the unwelcome. Similarly, fermented foods protect, support and shield our immune system, digestion, and overall well-being. The process is one of microbial magic, interpretation, and intuition.
