Kefir vs Yogurt

Both yogurt and kefir are fermented products and similar in tart taste. Their difference lies in their starter culture and the amounts of beneficial bacteria they contain. Yogurt is cultured with only a bacteria strain and kefir is fermented with both bacteria and yeast. Both are a source of probiotics, kefir however, typically contains 3x the amount of probiotic cultures than yogurt. 

 

Coconut Kefir Benefits

Fermentation is when microbes eat away at the carbohydrates (sugars) in foods and creates a by-product of organic acids or alcohol. This process makes more absorbable nutrient foods, easier to digest and promotes probiotics. Probiotics are normally found in your digestive tract as part of the intestinal flora. These good guys help inhibit the growth of unfriendly, disease-causing bacteria and stimulate the body’s immune response and promote healthy digestion. Too often we are unbalanced with good to bad bacteria due to use of antibiotics, hand sanitizers, diets high in processed sugary foods and consuming foods high in pesticides. When our guts are challenged with more bad than good bacteria we are faced with an assortment of health problems such as PMS, IBS, unclear skin, moodiness and brain fog.
