Introduction to Fermented Foods

  • Colonial Heights Presbyterian Church 2828 Southeast Stephens Street Portland, OR, 97214 United States (map)


Microbes (bacteria) are all around us and inside of us. Scientists have only scratched the surface when it comes to understanding these amazingly small creatures. This symbiotic relationship with our microbiome can provide some amazing health benefits, especially for those with diabetes. In this class, we’ll talk about ways to add fermented foods to your diet and how you can easily incorporate these foods into your daily routine. Bring your questions. We’ll offer samples and fun fermentation activities! 

Our speaker Anna Gianpetro, RDN, LD is a dietitian in Portland who is passionate about helping people make changes that stick. She works with clients’ nutrition needs ranging from eating disorders to diabetes to GI distress. She loves talking about food, trying new foods, eating food, and cooking food. In her spare time, she ferments pizza dough, oats, kombucha, vegetables and more!
