Foods that Contain Probiotics

Although bacteria isn't a word that screams "healthy", there are several types of live bacteria that have been shown to both treat and prevent diseases. Called probiotics, these helpful bacteria can be a great addition to any diet. Here is a list of foods that contain probiotics.

If you're familiar with probiotic foods, yogurt is probably the first one you think of. Yogurt is known for the healthy live cultures it contains. However, there are not live cultures in all yogurt. Make sure you carefully check the label before purchasing yogurt.

This vegetarian product is made from fermented soybeans, which means that it is full of good bacteria. Tempeh has the added benefit of being a great source of vitamin B12.

This easy to make fermented tea is another food that contains probiotics. If you have a fermention jar, it is as simple as boiling some tea and adding it to the jar along with water.

Sauerkraut, or pickled cabbage, is full of healthy live cultures. It also has all of the health benefits of regular cabbage, such as its stores of vitamins A, C, and E and indoles.

If you're not a fan of sauerkraut, you can try this tasty Korean alternative. Kimchi is also made from fermented cabbage, but generally has a more spicy flavor so that you can get probiotic benefits no matter what sort of food you prefer.

Miso Soup
This delicious and healthy Japanese soup contains a seasoning made from fermented beans and grains. If you're looking for additional nutrition, try a miso soup that also is full of a nutrient-packed sea vegetable.

Brewer's Yeast
Brewer's yeast is chock full of all the nutrients cast off when beer is produced, including the good bacteria. Choose this the next time you're adding yeast to food to make your meal a food that contains probiotics.

This dairy drink will add more live cultures to your diet. Buttermilk has a very strong flavor, so you may want to add it into a healthy smoothie instead of drinking it plain.

This mix of milk and fermented grains is bursting with nutritious probiotics. Kefir also is full of antioxidant properties. Try looking for this drink at your local health food store.

This is a very helpful list of foods that contain probiotics. I think if people realized how easily they could add extra probiotics to their diet they would look at foods before they reached for supplements.

The important point is to make sure the food is fermented naturally and that it has not been pasteurized.

Don't want to kill all these good bacteria!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my search for something relating to this.
