Pretty much everything; all fruit and vegetable peelings and scraps, cooked food, meat, dairy products, breads, cakes, egg shells….. It’s probably easier just to think of the few things that should not be added in large quantity to your bin:

  • Large bones – these are ok to add but take a long time to break down so make sure you bury them deeply in your garden or compost bin.
  • Lots of liquid – this can spoil the bin but it can be recovered by adding extra bokashi bran.
  • Any food that is rotten with blue/green mold – this may add blue/green mold to your bin but, again, this can be recovered by adding extra bokashi bran.
  • Animal faeces – these contain pathogens which can be harmful to humans.

Whilst you can add all compostable items to your bokashi kitchen composter, you may choose to only add select items to your bin. You may be interested in reading this article about what is best to put in your bokashi kitchen composter.
