One of my choices for a food probiotic is MISO! I like to mix it with raw ginger and organic chicken broth. The key is not to boil the miso – I add it last as the ginger and broth cool, stir and allow to dissolve. I throw in some seaweed chips – also yummy – and a superfood. It’s the perfect soup in winter. Keep reading, it’s very useful!
Miso paste is a probiotic food that contains millions of microorganisms similar or identical to those beneficial bacteria that live in your large intestine. These microorganisms grow during the fermentation that produces miso, a process that typically takes anywhere from a few days to a year or more. The length of the fermentation process determines the flavor strength of the miso and also contributes to the number of probiotic organisms in the final paste. Nutritionally, miso paste provides mostly carbohydrate with some protein. It is also rich in several of the B-complex vitamins and contains several minerals, including calcium, iron, zinc, copper and magnesium.
