Buttermilk provides probiotics which are 'friendly' bacteria that help in maintaining beneficial bacteria in the intestines and warding away disease causing microbes, therefore improving immunity. It is lower in fat and calories and higher on water than both milk and yoghurt. This makes it advantageous while weight watching and in replacing lost body fluids especially while convalescing.

The perfect summer drink

Nimmi Ittycheria John, Nutritionist and Diet Consultant, says ancient Indian wisdom has always regarded buttermilk as a thirst quencher. Affordability and easy availability make it the logical choice. And it scores over milk as it is a fermented form (of milk), rendering it easier to digest.

Its buttermilk's rejuvenating prowess that has made it so popular, especially in the thaneer pandals' during temple festivals. Doled out from huge vessels, neer more' (and its sweet cousin, panagam') has people, particularly children, queuing up with beseeching eyes and 1-litre take-away bottles. And when the usual summer stomach bugs give you the runs, buttermilk is among the first things that's recommended to safely replenish fluids in the body.

Buttermilk is lower in fat than regular milk, because the fat has been removed to make butter. It is also high in potassium, vitamin B12, calcium, and riboflavin as well as a good source of phosphorus. ...............Those with digestive problems are often advised to drink buttermilk rather than milk, as it is more quickly digested. Buttermilk has more lactic acid than skim milk. ......................................

WORST SUMMER DRINK !!!! It contain Casein Protein which cause ----- 1. Autism 2. A1/A2 Beta Casein ----------------------- Aflatoxin (a potent carcinogen) was administered to the rats over a 2 week dosing period. The rats were given a 1 week post-dosing period before beginning the test (promotion period). During the promotion period, one group of rats was put on a 5% casein protein diet and another group on a 20% casein protein diet. None of the rats on 5% casein protein developed foci, precursors to cancerous cell growth, and every rat on 20% casein protein developed the pre-cancer foci. It should be noted that all test groups were fed a 20% casein diet for a total of 5 weeks (2-wk acclimation, 2-wk dosing, 1-wk post-dosing) prior to the 12 week promotion period in order to survive the initial aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) dosing, regardless of whether they were in the 5% or 20% test groups.
