💕Why do fermented foods bubble?

The word effervescence is derived from the Latin verb fervere (to boil), preceded by the adverb ex.

It has the same linguistic root as the word fermentation.

After a day or two, you may start to see bubbles, and the brine will become cloudy.

  • The lactic acid fermentation process produces lactic acid bacteria that create gases when they feast on the vegetables.
  • These gases are often visible as bubbles throughout the jar after a few days at room temperature and are a good sign.
  • This is the beneficial bacteria doing their job!
  • Sometimes the bubbles are not so visible -however, if you have set up the right environment, the fermenting fairies (aka the microbes) will be producing bubbles.

When are they ready?

Finished ferments should have a pH reading of 4.5 or lower.
