A German person.
cabbage cut fine and allowed to ferment in a brine made of its own juice with salt, -- a German dish
Origin: [G., fr. sauer sour + kraut herb, cabbage.]
Sauerkraut, directly translated: "sour cabbage", is finely cut cabbage that has been fermented by various lactic acid bacteria, including Leuconostoc, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus. It has a long shelf-life and a distinctive sour flavor, both of which result from the lactic acid that forms when the bacteria ferment the sugars in the cabbage. Coleslaw, an unfermented dish made from fresh cabbage, may also be made with an acidic taste, but is otherwise quite different.
The Nuttall Encyclopedia
a favourite article of food in Germany and elsewhere in North Europe; formed of thinly sliced young cabbage laid in layers, with salt and spice-seeds, pressed in casks and allowed to ferment.

Sample Sentences & Example Usage
Sauerkraut does more than give your burger a delicious flavor boost, it’s actually a good source of probiotics, aka the good bacteria that live in your gut. These bacteria contribute to the health of your gut and are essential for a healthy digestive tract and immune function. Certain things like an unhealthy diet, undue stress, or a harsh round of antibiotics can affect the balance and health of the probiotics in the stomach. So it’s important to feed your gut with natural sources of probiotics, like sauerkraut.
