Hi cmcuk & all- (from your question on another thread that you moved here), as everyone above stated, no need to add sugar to kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut (kombucha & water kefir, yes). I do prefer lacto-fermented kraut/kimchi/veggies, which uses whey and much less salt. The sugars are converted by the lactobacillus bacteria to ferment the food and turned into lactic acid, hence the “sour” flavor and the preservative effect.
