Which tropical foods contain vitamin K2

With natural vitamin K2 from natto!

CressanBeta is a unique blend of traditionally fermented vegetables (beetroot and soybeans) and tropical fruits (papaya and pineapple); these fruits are traditionally eaten after a meal.

The mix also includes camu camu and nettle.

What is fermentation?

Fermentation means the growth of microorganisms (e.g. lactic acid bacteria) in food and was discovered by chance as an ideal storage technique.

We are now also familiar with other storage methods. However, traditionally fermented food is enjoying new popularity. Simply because it is so healthy.

Fermented food is extremely digestible. The lactic acid bacteria form enzymes that break down food and convert it into easily absorbable nutrients.

Fermented beetroot and natto duo

CressanBeta consists mainly of fermented beetroot. Lactic acid fermentation turns beet juice into a healthy, tasty drink with red pigments. After fermentation, the healthy drink is subjected to the freeze-drying of Cressana®; a gentle process in which the lactic acid bacteria are retained. Natto is a traditional Japanese dish made by fermenting boiled soybeans. The fermentation takes place through the action of the gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis natto. Natto has been prepared and eaten for over a thousand years, mostly by Japanese people from the eastern Kanto region.

Papaya and pineapple as a favorite dessert

Papaya and pineapple have been eaten after a meal for a very long time, especially if they are very rich in protein. Papaya is originally found in Brazil, Mexico, Nigeria, India and Indonesia, currently the five largest areas where this tropical fruit is grown. The pineapple is widely cultivated in Thailand, Brazil, India, the Philippines and South Africa.

Vitamin K2 from natto
