Foods With Probiotics

Yogurt is one of the most common foods that can be easily obtained from nearly any grocery store. Make sure to read the container to see if the yogurt you are buying contains live active cultures. Always check the labels some yogurts do not have any live cultures and therefore offer no probiotic benefits.

Buttermilk is another dairy food that is loaded with beneficial probiotic bacteria. You may like the sharp flavor and thick texture of buttermilk. If you find straight buttermilk, not your thing, you might want to try adding some to strongly flavored fruit smoothie type drinks in order to get the excellent probiotic benefits of buttermilk.

Kefir A cross between yogurt and milk, kefir is a delicious way to get probiotics.

Tempeh is another fermented soy food that is very rich in probiotics. It has a firm texture similar to that of meat it is used as a vegetarian and vegan replacement for meat. Since tempeh uses whole soybeans that are allowed to ferment to form the probiotic nutrients, tempeh is also rich in protein and B12.

Miso is a seasoning that has been made in Japan for many thousands of years. Fermenting various types of beans and/or grains produces miso. It is used for making soups and flavoring sauces. Popular types of miso include Shiromiso, or white miso, Kuromiso, or black miso, Akamiso, or red miso all are good for adding probiotics to your meal.
