Plant-based yogurts – for you!
Plant-based yogurts – for you!
Plant-based fermented nut delicacies (or “yogurts” in short) are new products on the market, but have developed significantly in the recent years.
They appeared to satisfy not only the need for dairy alternatives, but to add diversity and to replace cow’s milk in the menu of people with food intolerance and allergy to lactose and milk protein.
What are plant-based “yogurts”
They are obtained by fermentation of vegetable milk or very finely ground grains and nuts. During the fermentation process, the bacteria from the vegan starter culture:
- break down sugars;
- they restructure vegetable protein and make it easier to digest;
- give a pleasant lactic acid taste to the product;
- turn it into a live functional food.
Plant-based yogurts are a wonderful synbiotic – they contain both prebiotics and probiotics. They are not only very tasty, but also provide health benefits for the gastrointestinal flora, immunity and general health of the body.
What are the most popular plant-based “yogurts”
Nut “yogurt” from cashews, almonds, all kinds of nuts (including coconut), hazelnuts, macadamia, etc. is distinguished by its characteristic taste. It ferments well and has a fine creamy consistency. The specific taste of nuts is enriched by the lactic acid taste as a result of the fermentation. The beneficial composition of the raw material is preserved. It contains valuable fatty acids and proteins, and in addition – probiotics.
It also ferments well hemp seed milk, rice milk, soy milk and others.
The process is not complicated, and if you are among the fans of healthy eating, you can try to ferment plant-based “yogurt” at home. You need nuts or seeds with high quality, a powerful blender, a strainer bag or cheesecloth, starter cultures or a few spoons of good plant-based ‘yogurt’.
How to choose a quality product from the store
With the help of different additives like sugar, starch or other thickeners and lemon juice for yogurt, anything can be presented. But the truth is that they are not that beneficial for the people with healthy lifestyle.
When you are looking for a suitable plant-based “yogurt” on the market, which is really both tasty and healthy food for you and your loved ones, check a few things:
- what ingredients it is made from – the fewer and the more natural the better (the so-called “clean label”);
- what cultures were used for the fermentation and what is the origin of the probiotics (if any) – Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus and Bifidobacterium are often used;
- is it explicitly stated that it does not contain lactose and gluten (in case of intolerance to them);
- what packaging it is in – the glass jar does not affect its composition and quality, it is sustainable, recyclable, reusable and is environmentally friendly.
Who is the plain yogurt from nuts for?
For everyone who loves varied and healthy food. It is not just a substitute of animal milk, but has its own taste, satisfying even the most capricious palate. It can be eaten directly, but is also a good ingredient for many culinary delights.
It makes your diet easier if you have to avoid lactose and gluten for health reasons.
Recommended food for any vegan diet.
