- Ferment & then safely compost food waste
- Microorganism ferment food much like pickling
- Contains a balanced mix of nitrogen and carbon-rich material
- Wonderful ability to eliminate odor
- Use with a large airtight container
- Partners perfectly with Bokashi Recycling Bin
- This can be used to ferment raw & cooked food, dairy, small bones, citrus, eggshells, seafood, & meat.
- 2kg bags are 100% compostable
- Made in South Africa
- Add food waste* between layers of Earth Bokashi in the recycling bin.
- Microbes in the Earth Bokashi start a fermentation process.
- Once this process is complete, empty the bin into a compost heap, bury it under the soil, feed to earthworms, or make soil.
- After you have collected & fermented your food you can use it to add nutrients, minerals and microorganisms to your soil.
- *This includes raw & cooked food, dairy, small bones, citrus, eggshells, seafood, & meat!
How does it work?
- Bokashi bran is full of beneficial microorganisms that help to ferment food scraps; the process is anaerobic (it takes place without air), breaking down your kitchen waste into nutrient-rich soil food without letting it rot or releasing a bad odour. When your scraps have been fermented, you can then add the end product to your flower pots, compost heap or worm bin where it will then be exposed to air and small animals (worms & insects) and become compost. This is such a simple way to make your household more sustainable, and use your kitchen waste in an eco-friendly way.
Please Note: Once the recycle bin is full, it will need to stand unopened for 2 weeks to complete the fermentation process. Ideally, your kitchen should have 2, Earth Probiotic Bokashi Recycling Bin for Food Waste so you can use one while the other is left to stand.
Did you know?
- Bokashi is a Japanese word that means "fermented organic matter."
- For those of you who love to compost or have your own earthworm farm, you’ll know that certain food (namely bread, cooked food, citrus & meat) don’t work very well in these environments. Earth Bokashi is a great step to take before composting as the fermentation process makes these foods compatible with worm farms & compost heaps!
- The bokashi juice can be used as a soil drench and is diluted 1:300 (water: juice).
- The liquid is very acidic, hence the high dilution rate.
- Nett Weight: 2 kg.
- 100% recyclable paper.
Country of Origin:
- Proudly South Africa.

One bag lasted me for about three 25L bins. I agree that a no-plasic packaging and resealable options will just add to the pleasure I am already experiencing with this product.19/11/2019, By TanyaHave my Bokashi bin handy in my kitchen and will have it no other way now. Just a pity the large bag of Bokashi bran is not resealable like some other makes I've tried.20/10/2019, By CindyA great product, just wish it came in a paper bag like other brands in FTN. Lasts a long time.14/10/2019, By LiebeThis is a good product that adds to wholesome living. We are able to recycle almost everything!

#LoveRecycling02/09/2019, By TeganOne bag goes a long way. I use approximately one per full bucket of compost. There's no foul odour and the entire composting process is so much easier than I thought. Love it.26/07/2019, By ChristyYou have to have this for your Bokashi bin and it’s great because you only use a small handful at a time and it has such a neutral almost fresh smell! Definitely recommend getting the bin and the bran! You won’t regret!26/07/2019, By SueBeen using Bokashi bran for years.
Keeps the compost pile healthy and as a plus, I sprinkle it over my cat scat as it neutrolises harmful pathogens23/07/2019, By AdeleIt's certainly not the most glamorous task, but using the Bokashi System has certainly made green living more tangible and growing my own herbs, edible flowers and veggies more successful.22/07/2019, By "Go Organic"The Earth Bokashi Bran is the "magic Ninja" which is added into our Bokashi Composting Bins!27/06/2019, By NicoletteI've been using this for a while now and I love how this is contributing to have my kitchen clean smelling - no flies, no pests - just awesome!
I recommended this to my friend too and she loves it as much as I do.21/06/2019, By TaylaReally wonderful for composting. Breaks down organic waste in about two weeks - so much faster than conventional composting.12/06/2019, By NicoletteSo I got myself the bin and it's almost full. I love this stuff! Clean and green goodness for mother earth. We must all do our part to put back the good stuff into the ground that feeds us.30/05/2019, By FerrisBuellerWhen used correctly, there is no odour from the "waste".13/05/2019, By ShezVery good product15/04/2019, By AndreaWorks as it should, just make sure you are not shy with how much you use!10/04/2019, By SianIt blows my mind how effective this is - it breaks down food waste very very quickly. No smells.01/03/2019, By StellaA must have if you've got a bokashi on the go.26/02/2019, By ZsuzEasy to use, it lasts for a while and no smells.26/02/2019, By GillSo easy to use.

Was worried I would run out quickly but that isn’t the case.31/01/2019, By SusanI'm excited to join the Bokashi family and look forward to a much happier, healthier garden!24/01/2019, By EuniceI love the fact that this method allows composing of a wide variety of food scraps. The bran works really well and a little goes a long way.22/12/2018, By RuWorks like a charm! I've been doing the Bokashi-thing for two years now and it is such an easy effortless way to turn food scraps into compost. No more waste food in landfills!12/12/2018, By ChrissyThis stuff really works and there's no smell flies, etc...01/12/2018, By AENPerfect solution for speeding up composting at home28/11/2018, By TwiNot a very easy system to use. Takes a lot longer than advertised. I have two bins of kitchen waste and am not sure what to do with them. Other reviews say they bury the waste in a garden/veg patch. What if you don't have one? Where do you put it?26/11/2018, By EliznaI have two bins for when the one is sealed for the two weeks before adding to my compost bag. Works perfectly, no bad smells. And I am making my own compost. Great products from Earth Probiotic. Easy to use as well.26/11/2018, By PalomaI love this product and keep on buying it all the time. It takes the smell away from my composting bin and goes a long way. I even put it in the small bin. Brilliant product.17/11/2018, By AnelThe Bokashi system works really well, and I ended up getting it rather than a worm farm (not that those can't work together) or another composting system, as this allows me to also get rid of bones, onion scraps, etc which normal composting systems can't take. I'm very happy with this type of Bokashi wheat bran - a nice big packet that stores and dispenses easily.16/11/2018, By BarbaraReally works09/11/2018, By KateI love my Bokashi system. The activated wheat bran breaks down food scraps and then I feed the mixture to my worms. The food mixture is partially broken down already so the worms digest it quickly, making "black gold" beautiful nutrient rich compost in a matter of weeks. A stress free way to turn kitchen waste into compost!06/11/2018, By MegzLove this product speeds up the process and leaves no odors.25/10/2018, By LolaMy bro loves to use this18/10/2018, By JuanitaI am happy with the product itself. I use it to help along the composting process in my large outdoor composting bin. The only thing I am not fond of is the thick single-use plastic packaging.17/10/2018, By MelissaWe have been using the Bokashi system for just over a month and it has greatly reduced our waste to landfill, I especially love the fact that meat and bones can also be fermented. No bad smells and we have already started treating our garden with the tea. Patiently awaiting our first batch of compost.13/10/2018, By CindyPurchased this bran with the big bucket about 2 weeks ago. Love the fact that I can do my better bit for the environment.05/10/2018, By RuI've made quite a few batches of compost with this product. It works great!30/09/2018, By WendyHave made mounds of wonderful compost with the Bokashi bins and bran. It is great to use all your scraps, peels and , stale bread instead of sending them to landfill. The bran keeps everything smelling nice while it breaks down the food.28/09/2018, By LesI recently purchased this little wonder and am so pleased with it. It was a toss up between the outdoor compost tub or this one and am very glad I chose the Bokashi. Fits nicely in my tiny kitchen and already has produced ‘tea’ for my plants. No smell at all as it seals well and is so easy to use. I would recommend this to everyone. Just remember to order the bran when you order the composter.26/06/2018, By AdélI prefer this over the Bokashi spray. It takes away any odour and it's nice that it covers the food scraps, so when you return the next day you don't have to see the previous day's scraps.
I wish they would, however, package this in something that is not plastic. I don't want to buy the tub every time, so it would be great if this can come in plant plastic or something else that can biodegrade as well.19/03/2018, By JulieMy favourite one on the market because it is made with sawdust and has a nice smell23/05/2017, By FatimaGreat product, it works, there are no overpowering odors, the bran makes fermenting organic waste smell sweet.03/11/2015, By NikodemisI 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.08/06/2015, By Earth ProbioticHi 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.20/03/2015, By M. Paloma WernerI 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?
