Featured Stories on Cultured Guru Fermented Foods
CULTURES magazine is a magazine published by the American Society for Microbiology. This specific issue focuses on microbiologist's who have unconventional careers in their field. Our microbiologist, Kaitlynn, was featured for her continued work in fermentation science. We constantly push to give correct and scientifically backed information to our readers so they can safely make and enjoy their own fermented foods. Being recognized and being associated with this publication is a huge accomplishment for Cultured Guru.
Kaitlynn's Alma Mater (specifically the College of Science) reached out to her because of her unconventional career she is forming for herself in the field of microbiology. She discusses how Cultured Guru came to be, how we got started and what things are in it's future. Being recognized by the College of Science is very exciting for us. We always strive to be educators in our field and this will help us build trust with people just finding out about us.
Christina Leo, community writer for InRegister magazine, talks with us about the current fermented foods trend that is happening in Baton Rouge.

It also covers how our personal lives intertwined to enable us to embark on this incredible journey.
Summer rolls are 100% our favorite way to get a heaping dose of many prebiotic foods. Essentially a summer rolls is just a bunch of nutritious veggies rolled into rice paper. Probiotics NEED prebiotic foods to remain and thrive in your gut. When I chat with people new to the fermented foods and probiotic scene, I describe the gut microbiome as a pet that lives within you and that pet needs water and high quality, nourishing foods to survive! To feed your microbiome, you should eat plenty of green leafy veggies, fibrous root vegetables, and an array of other colorful fruits and veggies. We love summer rolls so much because they're a fun, fresh and tasty way to eat a lot of raw veggies.
Growing up, we’re taught to avoid “germs” at all costs, right? In school, we learn about the bacteria that cause illnesses and we automatically write off all mircobes “bad.” Thankfully, today’s Woman of the Week is shattering the taboo surrounding bacteria through the science of food fermentation and promoting good bacteria consumption!
Kaitlynn Fenley is an LSU Microbiology graduate with a passion for the unseen world of microbes. This Power Pump Girl is a business owner that wears multiple hats as a microbiologist, fermented food artisian, and lifestyle blogger. And did we mention, her company, Cultured Guru is the FIRST fermented food company in Louisiana?! Talk about major bragging rights!!! Except, in getting to know her, you’ll find Kaitlynn to be completely relatable and (literally) down-to-earth!
