Did you know?! Sauerkraut Fun Facts:

  • In Germany, the average per capita consumption of sauerkraut is approximately 2.6 pounds, down from 4.4 pounds 40 years ago.
  • In WWI and WWII, the slang word “kraut” was used to refer to sailors and ultimately all German soldiers because of the long history of German ships being outfitted with Sauerkraut as part of daily food rations to prevent scurvy.
  • In the 18th century, explorers like Captain Cook used sauerkraut to prevent scurvy during long sea voyages, bringing as much as 25,000 pounds of the Vitamin-C rich ferment along on voyages.
  • The Germans gave sauerkraut its popular name but the Germans did not invent sauerkraut. (The ancient Chinese did while building the Great Wall of China!)
