Why you should have curd with every meal
- 11 Months ago
During the process of making curd, bacteria convert milk into curd and predigest the protein. These bacteria then inhibit the growth of illness causing bacteria inside the intestinal tract and promote beneficial bacteria needed for digestion. Hence, the protein in curd is more readily digested than the protein in milk. It has been estimated that regular milk is only 32 per cent digested after an hour in the digestive tract, whereas 91 per cent of curd is digested within the same period of time.
The nutrients present in curd are easily absorbed by your digestive system. Not only that, it also helps in absorbing nutrients from other food items that you have eaten. It can also be used along with spicy food, as curd cools down and neutralises the heat that these foods create.
