Probiotics have become a trendy topic in the world of healthy eating, and for good reason. Research has proven that these healthy bacteria are essential to developing a strong digestive system and immune system. That’s a pretty good reason to include more fermented foods in your diet. Yogurt is among the most popular of the probiotic-containing foods that we eat. However, some brands and types of yogurt are nutritionally superior to others. Among the best is Bellwether Farm’s Sheep Yogurt.
Sheep Yogurt: The King of Yogurts
You might be wondering what makes sheep yogurt healthier than cow or goat milk yogurt. Let it be said that when it comes to nutrition, sheep milk yogurt is the king among yogurts. It contains more protein (10g) and heart-healthy fats (9g) per 6oz. serving than both cow and goat yogurt. In addition, sheep milk is higher in numerous vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, and vitamin B12.
Another plus is that sheep yogurt is easier for our bodies to digest compared to cow or goat yogurt. In fact, some people who cannot tolerate cow or goat dairy find that sheep dairy is safe for them. It has a milder and smoother taste as well. Sounds like quite a healthy and delicious snack!
