The texture of your home made yoghurt is thick and creamy with a sharp, slightly sour flavour at the end of palate. If you like a tangy yoghurt – this is the one for you.
Prefer a flavoured yoghurt? You can turn this into any flavour you like. For example, you can create a French vanilla or strawberry flavour.
Why are probiotics so important?
As we are what we eat. It is important to take note of what we are consuming and make sure it is good for us.
Probiotics can treat various illnesses and they can support people’s general wellbeing.
All across the world, different cultures have consumed probiotic filled foods such as yoghurt, fermented milk, tempeh and miso.
The majority of probiotics are in fact bacteria found in the gut. Generally speaking, probiotics are split into 2 major groups: Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus.
There are numerous reasons to use probiotics for health purposes. For example, our immune system is full of friendly bacteria that protect the body against nasty microorganisms that might want to attack it. Individuals usually use probiotics to counterbalance side effects of taking antibiotics. Others, make use of probiotics to ease additional conditions like lactose intolerance (find our lactose free yoghurt recipe HERE). Lactose intolerance is an illness triggered by the lack of an enzyme called lactase, necessary to digest main sugars found in milk.
Unhealthy lifestyles, stress and detrimental diets all have the tendency to destroy their natural quantities of probiotics. That’s why, the best alternative is to eat more probiotic nutrient food such as yoghurt.
