Fermented foods are great for gut health, so why not try making your own? This simple, homemade yogurt is full 'good' bacteria that provide great health benefits for such a simple dietary inclusion. See method
of the reference intake
Heat the milk in a small, heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat, stirring occasionally to ensure it doesn’t catch, until it reaches 85°C on a thermometer. It should be steaming slightly but not boiling, and fine bubbles will appear.
Remove from the heat and leave to cool to 46°C – this will take 25-30 mins. After this, put 3 tbsp in a small bowl and mix with the yogurt. Pour back into the pan and stir to combine.
Pour into a 500ml flask, screw on the lid and leave at room temperature to set for at least 10 hrs (or up to 24 hrs for a thicker texture and stronger flavour), without disturbing it during this time. When set, transfer to a sterilised* jar and seal. It will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
*To sterilise glass jars, wash in hot, soapy water and rinse well. Dry in the oven for 15-20 mins at gas 1, 140°C, fan 120°C until hot and completely dry. Boil rubber seals for 10 mins, then leave to dry.
