Probiotic Yogurt Drinks: Trader Joe's Kefir
Over the next few days, I will be posting reviews of some probiotic yogurt drinks that I’m sampling. Probiotic bacteria are good bacteria that live in our digestive systems, and studies have shown that probiotics are helpful for digestive health. Products such as Activia yogurt, kefir and lassi all have probiotics.
Trader Joe’s Lowfat Plain Kefir is a cultured milk product with lots of probiotics such as_ L. Lactis, L. Acidophilus, L. Plantarum, L. Rhamnosus, etc._ It is also fortified with Vitamins A and D, and is simply delicious. It has the right consistency and a pleasant taste. It is unsweetened and not too sour or tart. I like it by itself or with some gluten-free Brown Rice Crisp.
