Tammy Brill: Homemade Yogurt vs Cafeteria Yogurt (Under the Microscope)

How do store-bought fermented foods like sauerkraut and yogurt, you might ask, match up against the kind you can make at home?
Well, most of the yogurts and “fermented foods” you find in the grocery store are unfortunately sorely lacking in the live nutrients department.
But when you eat the real thing, a food that’s been fermented the right way for the right amount of time, you can tell that it’s alive. It’s burbling and fizzing, and when you eat it you can feel that it’s actually doing something for you.
There’s a magic as well as a host of health benefits to the ancient low-cost methods of fermenting our foods.
So, what is the difference between homemade and store-bought? Well, it gets a little bit into the weeds. But thankfully, today we’re here with a specialist.
Joining us on the show is our dear friend, the wonderful and talented Tammy Brill. Tammy is a noted scientist and educator in the field of gut health and fermented foods. After nearly 30 years of teaching as a microbiology instructor and university lab supervisor for biology and chemistry labs, Tammy shifted gears to become a health coach and master fermenter.
On this show with Tammy Brill, we are chatting about:
• What happened when Tammy had her microbiology class look at homemade yogurt and cafeteria yogurt under the microscope
• Tips about longevity for your pets (coming from someone who has a 23-year-old cat and two 13-year-old dogs)
• A healthy food swap when you’re stressed and want something crunchy
• Beginner-friendly fermented foods
• The gut-brain connection
• And much more…
