Thank-you for your response. Although, I did some reading since I posted the question about eating the cabbage. The same goes for the beets. When we inoculate the vegetable as in the Kvass or the cabbage juice, it leeches the nutrients out of them meaning only the fiber is intact by the time it's done. So the only medicinal value would be fiber which is o.k but I can think of funner ways of getting that!Have you made the Rejuvalac yet? I have made it twice and thrown both out. The smell tells me I'm doing something wrong. BAD! BAD! odor to it. I can say I've never come across anything like it.
