Did you know that buttermilk derives from cow’s milk which has sour taste due to lactic acid bacteria?
These bacteria are the Lactococcus lactis or Lactobacillus bulgaricus.
However, traditional buttermilk is beneficial to health as it contains probiotic microbes and is sometimes referred to as “Grandma’s probiotic”. It is also good for our stomach and skin.
Buttermilk is consumed in warm climates such as Middle East, Balkans or India, as well as in cold ones such as Finland, Germany or Netherlands.
