Curd – Yoghurt – Dahi – Thairu!
Call it whatever you want..but it is a superfood
Well, Shakespeare once said – “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet“.. Perhaps, he was referring to our desi curd! 😉
Rich in calcium, B – Vitamins, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium, our desi curd is an amazing probiotic too, apart from having a moderate amount of protein. Probiotics are micro living organisms (mostly bacteria) that are seen in the gut and helps for digestion.
Curd contains bacteria from the family – Lactobacillus & Bifidobacterium, which are particularly helpful for digestion. Including curd in your diet can reduce the difficulties of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which is a common disorder that affects the colon
Since curd is rich in calcium and phosphorous, it also helps in improving the bone strength and hence particularly helpful for those suffering from osteoporosis
PS: You have perhaps heard not to have curd with fish or any other non-vegetarian food. This is because the curd-nonveg combination is considered to be unhealthy according to Ayurveda. This is a debated topic as far as modern medical science is concerned. However, nonveg food is often marinated with curd in many other parts of the world. We at NuvoVivo, do not a have a conclusive opinion on the curd-nonveg combo yet, as we do not endorse or oppose a concept/product without having a real understanding about it 🙂
