Normally, you don’t want little buggers in your food. Unless it’s a chocolate-covered ant…maybe. But definitely not bacteria—salmonella or E. coli could cause serious illness.
Push those thoughts aside about all bacteria being bad for you. Probably one of the most important foods with good bacteria is yogurt. The probiotics (potentially beneficial supplements to a diet from bacateria) may be so great for the body that they could ward off allergies and eczema or help with digestion.
No longer just in yogurt, these probiotics are now found in cereal, beverages and cheese. Aimed for breakfast, these foods can be consumed for a snack, as well. With no common side effects, adding these good bacteria to your diet could promote better health and lessen your reliability on prescription medication. Scientists are continually testing to find out how and which bacteria benefit people.
