The Experience Life editor in chief discusses good sources of naturally occurring probiotics.
If you’re looking for reasons to choose organic dairy products, you don’t have to look very far. Studies have shown organic milk from grass-fed cows is higher in beta-carotene and other nutrients and lower in unhealthy stress hormones. We’re big fans of organic milk’s role in this probiotic-packed organic yogurt from the veteran producers at Stonyfield Farm. Their whole-milk version is our favorite (for reasons explained in our upcoming September feature on the appeal of full-fat dairy). We also appreciate the efforts that Stoneyfield makes to conserve precious resources. By ditching the plastic lids on their 8-ounce containers, Stonyfield uses 16 percent less energy, creates 6 percent less solid waste and uses 13 percent less water in production.
You think you’ve been eating yogurt all your life, and you pretty much know what to expect. Then along comes a bowl of Greek yogurt – a staple at most meals in Greece, rather than a dieter’s breakfast punishment – and it confuses your senses completely.
