Take your composting to a whole new level with this nutrient-rich fermented wheat bran, otherwise known as Bokashi. This is a specially brewed bran formula packed with the power of Effective Microorganisms (EM), which work to break down all sorts of waste into nourishing food for your garden’s soil. Bokashi bran from the Earth Probiotic brand is the perfect indoor composting solution – it’s quick, convenient and odour-free. This compost starter works on all sorts of scraps, including bread, dairy and even meat. Earth Probiotic’s Bokashi Bran is brewed and produced in South Africa.

  • Eco-Friendly
  • Proudly South African

When you sprinkle dry Bokashi bran over your food scraps, the moisture in the food activates the microbes and starts an anaerobic (“no air”) fermentation process. In other words, Bokashi bran effectively pre-digests your food waste and turns it into soil food that can be easily absorbed, nourishing your plants beautifully.

  • No rotting occurs during fermentation
  • No nasty odours; no flies
  • Quick and easy

Bokashi bran is effective on a huge variety of kitchen waste products; you can use it to ferment fruits and vegetables, bread, bones, egg shells, seafood and even meat scraps (cooked or uncooked). By recycling all this waste, you can keep your home cleaner and greener, cut down on your carbon footprint and feed your plants or veggies with some really beneficial, nourishing microorganisms.


  • Add your food scraps to an airtight composting bin (like the Earth Probiotic Food Waste Digester), and sprinkle a layer of Bokashi Bran over it. Make sure the bin is tightly sealed.
  • Once your bin is full, leave it to stand for 2 weeks to complete the fermentation process.
  • Add the fermented waste to your garden soil or your worm farm.

I love the bokashi indoor kitchen waste composter bin and the bran that goes with it. This is one of the best things thats hit the market since sliced bread - and u can even compost the sliced (or toasted or cheesed or buttered or burnt) version of the toast in this as well :) . I have been recycling and repurposing my various recycleables from home for many a year, and my garden birds have been getting their share from the kitchen too. I also make compost by my veggie garden but being a smallish suburban garden next to a public park, all these processes attract rats and smells. And of course not much of my kitchen waste went to my compost either. However, with the Bokashi indoor composter my wildest expectations were surpassed. No odors, just a pleasure - no more left over cooked foods to fowl my municipal dustbin or pollute the land fills or set gases free to do more damage to the fragile ecosystems. And the compost tea makes magic happen to my potted herbs et al. I love it! But do be mindful that u have to have two of these bins so one is used when the other is full and pickling away for a closed up 2 weeks before being buried in the garden. I got so inspired I even built my own 2nd bucket. And know that u use at least one good solid full handful of bran per layer of compost.

Hi there M. Paloma Werner

We are so glad that you enjoyed our product.

The only reason why you would have flies in the small collecting container is if it isn closed properly. Just make sure that you have the lid on securely to deter any critters.

Thank you very much for choosing Earth Probiotic Recycling Solutions for your food waste recycling needs! Continue feeding the soil and not landfills.

I love my compost bin and think the bran is fantastic. The bran keeps the flies away and the bin does not smell when I open it to put additional cut-offs in. Just struggeling a little with the black small bin in the kitchen with the food flies and hope winter will help. Does anybody know if the stainless steel bin is better?
