Tempeh is a fermented soy dish originating from Indonesia. It has a similar appearance to tofu, but has a firmer texture. But tempeh gets its probiotic “edge” because it is fermented. A 2013 study on intestinal bacteria published in the Polish Journal of Microbiology found that tempeh actually helped stimulate the growth of Bifidobacteria, a kind of “good” bacteria found in your gut that helps promote overall health. Moreover, tempeh consumption has other benefits such as lowering cholesterol and increasing bone density. Oh, and that’s not even counting the fact that tempeh is a good source of manganese, copper and phosphorus.
Eating right, and living healthily, does not have to be a chore. Probiotic food is a delightful way to promote health. But probiotic food isn’t limited to dairy. So, whether you’re a full-on vegan, or only vegan “part-time”, grab a spoon, and dig into these delectable probiotic treats that are sure to tantalize your taste buds, and boost your health!
