Buttermilk, more like the salted version of Lassi is one drink most dietitians and Nutritionists swear by as it is not just healthy but also quite tasty and filling. Most people drink this to lose weight as it is a source of several nutrients including protein, calcium and riboflavin.
In fact, today we are here to talk about some benefits of this drink… Read along.
Buttermilk is a fermented dairy product also used as an ingredient in biscuits, muffins, quick breads and pancakes. It can also be used in batters for fried foods or as a creamy base in soups, potato salad, or salad dressings. However, buttermilk does not contain Butter.
Traditionally, Buttermilk is made from leftover liquid after the whole milk has been churned into butter. This type of buttermilk is rarely found in Western countries but remains common in parts of Nepal, Pakistan and India.
It mostly consists of water, milk sugar lactose and milk protein and packs a lot of nutrition even in a small serving. One cup for instance provides low calories, proteins, carbs, fat, calcium, sodium, riboflavin, vitamin B12 and Pantothenic acid.
So, that’s all for now. And as an added bonus, nothing like a nice cup of buttermilk during the scorching heat.
