Can you put rotten food in bokashi?Updated 4 months ago

Yes, you can put rotten food in a Bokashi bin. 

Bokashi composting is an anaerobic process that ferments organic waste, including food scraps that may have already started to decompose. 

The effective microorganisms (EMs) in the Bokashi bran work to ferment the waste, reducing odors and accelerating the decomposition process once the material is buried in soil. 

However, while rotten food can be composted using the Bokashi method, it's important to avoid adding liquids and to maintain the balance of the compost by regularly adding Bokashi bran to ensure effective fermentation.
