3 Easy to Find Probiotic Food

Probiotic Foods Are quite Healthy There are a variety of healthy probiotics you can consume. These comprise countless varieties of fermented soybeans, dairy, and vegetables. I am highlighting a few of them here. Probiotics, from both foods and supplements, can have powerful health effects.

1. Yogurt is a fermented food and one of the best sources of probiotics, which contains gut-friendly bacteria that can improve your health. It is prepared from milk by the process of fermentation using lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria. Consuming yogurt is related to many health benefits, including better bone health. It is also suited for people with high blood pressure.

In children, yogurt might help control the diarrhea caused by the overuse of antibiotics. It can also help relieve the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome in both children and adults. Yogurt Is also appropriate for people with lactose intolerance Bacteria converts the lactose into lactic acid, which is also why yogurt tastes sour.

Keep a note that not all yogurts available on the supermarket shelves contain live probiotics. Many times, the live bacteria have been killed during processing. On this rationale, assure to choose yogurt with active or live cultures.

Read the label carefully before handpicking the product for total fat content, sugar content, and active live cultures present or absent.

How to eat it: Add fresh fruit, seeds, and little frozen berries to a bowl of plain yogurt for a filling breakfast or afternoon snack or just a handful of chopped nuts and raisins.

2. Kimchi is a probiotic made by using cabbage as the main ingredient for fermentation.  It can also be made from other cruciferous vegetables along with garlic.

Kimchi is mostly spicy and is flavored with a mix of seasonings, like red chili pepper flakes, garlic, ginger, and salt. Lactobacillus kimchii, a probiotic organism present along with other lactic acid bacteria that helps in improving digestive health.

Kimchi is a Korean side dish that has high levels of vitamins and minerals, like vitamin K, riboflavin (vitamin B2), and iron.

How to eat it: Kimchi can be enjoyed on its own or with a bowl of rice or as a salad mix.

3. Traditional Buttermilk
 is a complex term and refers to a variety of fermented dairy drinks. Basically, there are two main types of buttermilk: traditional and cultured. Traditional buttermilk is simply the leftover liquid during the process of making and this contains probiotics, and it is sometimes called “grandma's probiotic” in the modern world where we mostly consume processed food. It is mostly consumed in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Pakistan.

Cultured buttermilk, commonly found in supermarkets, and generally does not have any probiotic benefits. So, once again read the label carefully before putting in your shopping basket for probiotic ones. Buttermilk is low in fat and calories but contains several important vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin B12, riboflavin, calcium, and phosphorus.

How to eat it: simply drink it or add to your greens smoothie.
