honey

Polish organic food does not differ from that elsewhere in Europe. Still, there may be some good-quality and typically Polish products you have never heard about but would like to try anyway. 

Soured milk

Can you imagine a simple lunch classic of new potatoes with melted butter and dill, and a glass of soured milk? In Poland, soured milk is made of fresh, raw milk placed inside a clay jar, which due to the bacteria normally present in milk turns sour. It Is extremely healthy, because the lactose present in raw milk gets broken down by bacteria and becomes better tolerated by the body.

Sauerkraut

Sauerkraut is a form of fermented cabbage, popular in Poland for hundreds of years. Similar to cultured dairy products like yogurt and kefir, sauerkraut fermentation process produces beneficial probiotics that are now linked to improvements in immune, cognitive, digestive and endocrine function. 

Honey

With the centuries-long beekeeping tradition, Poland is Europe’s top producer of honey. Rich in vitamin and enzymes that are not found in any other natural foodstuff, honey is valued as a natural and healthy product. It comes in different varieties, which are named after the plants they are made from. These include spring rapeseed, heather, buckwheat, acacia, linden, clover, raspberry and other varieties.

Traditional Polish bread

Traditional Polish bread is an oval shaped loaf, distinguished by its light, delicate flavour and delicious aroma. It is a mixture of wheat and rye flour, which is why it has so many positive effects on your organism. Rye suppresses your desire to eat and does not spike your blood sugar levels, which can cause uncontrollable hunger and diminished energy, leading to weight gain.

Polish sour pickles

Unlike elsewhere in Europe, Polish pickled cucumbers are made using natural fermentation, instead of vinegar, which is why all the natural probiotics that form in the fermentation process are preserved. They are pickled with garlic, dill and unrefined salt, which accounts for their perfect sour taste.
