The Power of Probiotics

 

Looking for a way to improve your gut health? You may have heard of the term “probiotics,” and think it seems counter-intuitive to consume bacteria on purpose. Today, we’re going to break down how these live cultures are truly on your side and can help maintain a healthy environment inside your body’s gastrointestinal tract.

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are “good” bacteria, similar to those naturally found in your gut. There are over 500 different strains of probiotics that can be found naturally through foods, beverages, and supplements. Not all probiotics affect our health in the same way. Similar to vitamins and minerals, each strain has its own unique health benefits.

What are the benefits of probiotics?

The active cultures in probiotics help keep our gut flora in balance. This can also improve our immune function and digestive health. Probiotics have been shown to help treat diarrhea, vaginal infections, and can help prevent milk allergies, heart attacks, and hypertension. Probiotics can assist in preventing symptoms of inflammatory diseases such as, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, and colitis.

Where can you find probiotics?

You may not know it, but you probably consume probiotics in your everyday diet. Foods like yogurt, cheese, and kefir products naturally contain probiotics. Other fermented, non-dairy foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, and tempeh also have beneficial probiotics. For those who do not include enough of these foods in their diets, probiotic supplements are available.

Be on the lookout for our next blog post sharing all about the unique types of fermented foods and how to boost your probiotic intake with them!

What our clients are saying

“I just wanted to express my thanks and give two thumbs up for the updates to our lunch menu. My selections have been quite tasty—corned beef Reuben, jambalaya—and I appreciate that, too! I am looking forward to trying some new items in the coming weeks. Keep up the good work!”

“I have really appreciated the wonderful cafeteria staff we have via Culinart and the thoughtful meals they provide our kids. They're truly one in a million. I have also really appreciated the dedication Parker and CulinArt share to sustainability and green practices on campus. I am so thankful that Parker has chosen CulinArt, a company that shares Parker values, and that they took the time and effort at such a hard time to make sure that Parker is always on the forefront of green practices and safety - never compromising.”

“With all the prep work from Winterim ramping up and classes continuing as usual, it's a busy time to be a Forman teacher. Imagine my delight, tired as I was, when I delved into the upscale-restaurant-quality chicken parmesan our dining hall served last night. Forman is all about support, and providing our students with a dinner of that quality is just as important a measure of support as anything that happens in a classroom.”

“We can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into getting this emergency shipment of water to our Waco, Tx office. As always, you guys pulled out all the stops and did everything possible to help! I know it doesn’t seem like much to you, but our employees in TX that need drinking water are truly grateful. I feel so fortunate to work with such true professionals. I think you set the bar that your competition wishes they could match!”

“The roasted tofu/noodle/edamame arugula salad with cabbage, carrots and red peppers was something that I would buy from a restaurant or food truck without question. It would win best school lunch in the U.S. without a doubt if there was such a competition! The textures and flavors were a perfect blend, tied together by an excellent dressing. I don't think anyone would be mad if that popped up on the menu every week. Thanks again to you and your staff for such high-quality food!”

“We were totally impressed by the presentation and care in which these new team members were brought into the CulinArt family. So happy we made the decision to choose CulinArt Group.”

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“Thanks so much for a great week of food here at SCH to start off 2021. Everything has been fantastic. The kids were loving the Chinese food and boxes today. The Moo Shu Pork was amazing. Great work!”
