FRESSIAN KEFIR

SPICES: A BRIEF HEALTH GUIDE

First time farmers and founders of ice

cream manufacturer, Yorvale, have

introduced Yorlife Kefir fermented milk

drinks. Developed in conjunction with

natural fast food restaurant chain, Leon,

and available in three flavours (Natural;

Blueberry and Elderflower, Mango and

Passionfruit) Yorlife Kefir is made by

adding live yeast cultures, (kefir grains), to

milk from their herd of Friesian cows and

allowed to ferment. During this process,

it grows lots of good bacteria, which are

essential to help rebalance the gut's flora

and maintain healthy digestion.

ALL SOUPED UP

Winter is a time for classic soups, which are relatively easy to make and can serve several

friends or family, usually for little money. They are a great way of using seasonal foods or

even leftovers. For a quick reference guide as an infographic, CLICK THE PIC.

Don't skip curries if you are trying to lose

weight, says Rob Khan, the owner of

The Rajdani near Sevenoaks, which was

recently named Best Indian Restaurant in

the South East at the Asian Curry Awards.

He says that contrary to popular belief,

Indian food is not fattening, "Some of the

richer dishes laden with cream and butter

should be avoided if you want to lose

weight - and go easy on the lager. Spicy

foods are known to stimulate

the metabolism, boost the

immune system and boost

the spirits on cold, damp dark

winter days. Popular curry

recipes contain turmeric,

cumin, allspice, cardamom,

ginger, garlic and capsicum,

all spices with strong antibacterial properties."

Apart from promoting

weight loss, the spices use

in Indian cookery offer a host

of health benefits. Natural herbs and

spices were used for for thousands of

years before the invention of modern

medicine. Indeed, many chemicals used

in prescription drugs, are derived from

active ingredients originally found in

popular culinary flavourings.

Studies have found that garlic,

cinnamon and cumin can destroy up to

80% of meat-borne bacteria, while ginger

can slow bacterial growth by 25%. This

is why they are found in dishes from

hot countries, where meat needs to be

preserved. Chilli raises the metabolic rate

and stimulates the immune response.

Garlic well known for its antibacterial

effects, and helps fight disease. Turmeric

relieves congestion, and ginger eases

nausea while onion skins contain a potent

anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory,

effective in relieving blocked nose. Onion

extracts are also recognised by the World

Health Organisation (WHO) for providing

relief in the treatment of coughs and

colds, asthma and bronchitis.
