Best Fermented Foods For Gut Health
What are the differences or similarities between probiotic foods and fermented foods, or is there a difference? When you add bacteria and microorganisms to food, there's a process that makes it tasty and nutritious, it's called fermentation, but there's a misconception that fermented foods are probiotic. For example, not all fermented foods are probiotic.
Beer and wine, those are fermented foods, but they don't contain live cultures and then if you had that fermented food, but bake it or can it or pasteurize it eliminates that probiotic benefit. So can you have fermented foods that contain live organisms that are not "probiotic"? To read more of this topic or to listen to or download this podcast, follow the link.
Unfortunately, yes, so just because it says live cultures doesn't necessarily mean that it's going to give you the health benefits associated with populating your gut health. Now it could, but there's an important distinguished characteristic in that is there some sort of health benefit, so that's the important point. In this episode of The Mental Minute, I explain what it means to say a food or drink has undergone fermentation and a food or drink is full of probiotics.
