The Maker's Diet promotes making your own fermented cabbage. I suppose there would be residual juice!
The whole idea is probiotics. They are in any fermented food. I understand that home made cabbage allowed to ferment is very good for us--but we'll never know! I'm confident my son wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole! If you decide to try it, I would start slowly with small amounts and gradually build. Theoretically, because of the fermentation there should be less gas associated with it, but be cautious!!!
Just my 2 cents!....
