Tasty Tuti Probiotic Yogurt – Health And Wellness In A Cup
Not all probiotic yogurts in Kenya are created equal. Prancing through the supermarket shelves on the dairy products aisle can be an eye-opening experience. There you will find different brands of cheese, milk, ghee, cooking cream, butter and yogurt.
Let’s talk about the yogurt for a minute. Each yogurt brand promises health and wellbeing and tells you how utterly delicious their product is. They also tell you how the live cultures and fruits are loaded with health benefits; drawing you in with their colourful displays – yellow for mango, pink for strawberry, white for vanilla and on it goes.
Non-probiotic yogurt is a good source of calcium, magnesium, zinc and protein. However, more and more people are opting for the probiotic alternative.
You could be eating lots of healthy, whole foods, taking nutrient-rich supplements and still have health problems which you just can’t seem to figure out. This could be true if all the nutrients are not absorbed in your body. This is where probiotics come in. They make it easier for your body to absorb all the nutrients that the food you ingest has to offer, leading to a healthy immune system.
Probiotics are live organisms consisting of fungi, yeasts and bacteria which load you with health benefits when consumed in certain amounts. Once they get to your gut, they prevent disease-causing bacteria and maintain a healthy microbiota. Just for clarity, microbiota is the legion of micro-organisms found in your large intestine.
Did you know that humans have been ingesting bacteria for years? Every nation around the world has a form of fermented food that fills their intestines with these microorganisms. The Germans have sauerkraut, finely shredded cabbage fermented with lactic acid, the Japanese have miso, a soy bean paste fermented with fungus, and here in Kenya, the Kalenjin have mursik, fermented milk filled with lactic acid bacteria. Probiotics have been proven to prevent or treat respiratory tract infections, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and eczema.
Like I said earlier, some probiotic yogurt brands are more equal than others. Exhibit A – Tuti Probiotic Yogurt.
Not only does this low-fat yoghurt have helpful bacteria, it has Aloe Vera Barbadensis as one of its ingredients. Aloe Vera contains over 200 nutritional compounds, 20 minerals, 20 of the 22 human required amino acids, 12 vitamins and at least 8 enzymes.
As a superfood, Aloe Vera has the following benefits to the body:
- It’s laden with vitamins: Vitamin A maintains healthy vision and neurological function while Vitamin C protects the body from heart diseases and prenatal disorders. Vitamin E, another powerful component of Aloe Vera, is a powerful antioxidant that fights inflammation and ageing.
- It boosts immunity: Aloe Vera combats zinc deficiency so that the body has a balanced mood and immune function. Brady kinase, found in Aloe Vera stimulates the immune system and kills infections.
- It alleviates chronic hyperglycaemia in diabetics: This super food decreases swelling and blood lipids and leads to faster healing of wound injuries in diabetics.
- It aids in digestion: Aloe Vera has laxative and anti-inflammatory properties. It maintains the pH balance and encourages digestive bacteria to work optimally. As a result, stomach discomfort and flatulence are greatly reduced. It also soothes and heals ulcers, restoring the stomach lining one serving at a time.
Unlike most yogurts in the market which are filled with chemicals and preservatives, Tuti yogurt is all natural. Non-decolourized whole leaf aloe extract which accounts for 10% of the ingredients is used during the processing of Tuti yogurt.
You can opt for the sugarless yogurt or the alternative, flavoured with low amounts of cane sugar. However, both are low fat and safe for diabetics and those looking to shed off some weight. The probiotic organisms and Aloe Vera extract make this tub of yogurt very healthy which you can add to your breakfast cereal or eat as a frozen snack.
