Probiotics
Posted Wednesday, July 3, 2013 at 2:56 PM

This has probably been brought up somewhere along the line,if it has, I am sorry to be repeating it. I know we can get prebiotics from sources like onions and garlic, but where can we get the probiotics? Confused

non-dairy yogurts are one option and there are probably others. but, except in situations like taking antibiotics, you're less likely to actually need them with a plant based plan because things tend to sort of smooth out so to speak, you don't have stuff rotting and fermenting in your digestive tract the way meats can.

True enough. Your gut will make its own probiotics naturally, and the good ones in abundance with your high-fiber, powerful diet!

Non-dairy yogurts are available with the probiotics added (as are the dairy yogurts - probiotics are added at the factory, not naturally concurring).

Some fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi have probiotics too.

So on a day to day basis, we really have nothing to be concerned about. That's good to know. I am trying to follow the kickstart menu pretty closely. I have not been able to find soy or rice or any kind of yogurt except the dairy one. Also,for miso,what kind do you suggest? All I have been able to find is the brown. Thanks for all your info.

I think any miso is fine.
