Probiotic Foods

Probiotic foods that supply varying amounts of beneficial live bacteria that grow during carefully controlled fermentation processes. Some of these are common foods one may include in the diet, while others may seem a bit more exotic, though they are readily available in supermarkets. Probiotic foods and beverages include plain yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, fresh sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, apple cider vinegar, and miso. To be remembered that the probiotic effects of these foods are destroyed by cooking, processing, or preserving at high temperatures.
