Zeli Sauerkraut

Zeli Sauerkraut Full range

Vrati Smida is the craftsman behind zeLi!  Chef, artisan, Czech native, and master of infusing the humble cabbage with mind-blowing flavour and scrumptiousness, he has given his childhood staple a culinary makeover. When he couldn’t satisfy his hankering for good, old-fashioned sauerkraut after moving to New Zealand, Vrati rolled up his sleeves and set about making it himself. The first batch was created by combining traditional equipment, old-school craftsmanship and his grandma's original recipe, with fresh and modern flavours. It was so bang-on that he’s been making it that way ever since. As both of us are focused on gut health, Amino Mantra partnered with Zeli to offer our customers the Gut Health Pack (no longer available) .
