Ferments can safely be transported unrefrigerated because it takes several days for the live cultures to enliven and resume the process of fermentation. There is no danger of spoilage or harm to the live cultures during shipping.
A result of moderate temperature fluctuation in transit is that fermentation may resume inside your packages during the trip. The result will be CO2 gases that cause pouches to puff, which is normal and safe. Simply burp your package and refrigerator upon arrival. If a package leaks during transport as a result of this, simply rinse it off, refrigerate and enjoy.
We attempt to ship all packages so that items do not spend Sunday sitting in a shipment facility. That may mean a slight delay in the shipment of your product if you place your order later in the week and you live several shipping zones away from Florida (we will wait to ship your order on Monday.) Typical transit times is 2-days, regardless of where you live.
