Plant 'milk' can be a probiotic alternative to conventional yogurt


For many people, getting the benefits of probiotics from eating conventional animal-based yogurt is not a possibility due to gluten or lactose intolerance, milk allergies or a vegan diet. Recently, a group of scientists from the Polytechnic University of Valencia have demonstrated that certain plant "milks" can be a potential substitute to conventional animal-based yogurt. The group illustrated how certain plant milks have the capability to support viable colonies of probiotic bacteria. This research has the potential to offer a healthy substitute (besides probiotic capsules) for animal- and soy-based yogurts.
