How to make buttermilk for weight loss and 35 benefits of buttermilk?

Buttermilk is a well known ingredient in the kitchen, adding tang to everything from salad dressing to home-baked bread to fried chicken. Buttermilk is also known as Chaas. Here I am going to describe about How to make buttermilk for weight loss and other 35 benefits of buttermilk?

Ayurveda wisdom held that one big glass of the frothy, tangy buttermilk would fortify and fuel you through a summer-day’s work.

Takra is the sanskrit name of buttermilk. 
While today’s techno-dependent toilers are more likely to find their morning boost in cups of espresso, we have not forsaken buttermilk’s culinary and therapeutic attributes. Contrary to its name and characteristics, thick, rich buttermilk contains no butter at all. The word reflects buttermilk’s cottage-industry beginning as the milky liquid reserved when heavy cream is churned into butter, hence the term ‘buttermilk’.

How to make buttermilk for weight loss?

During the process of fermentation, bacteria, yeast and other lactic acid organisms convert milk into curd and predigest milk protein. These bacteria then inhabit the growth of hostile or illness causing bacteria inside the intestinal track and promote beneficial bacteria needed for digestion.

These friendly bacteria facilitate the absorption of minerals and aid in the synthesis of vitamins of B group and are very much essential for good health because they secrete enzymes similar to those secreted by the digestive organs.

Administration of broad-spectrum antibiotics not only kills the pathogenic organisms but also wipes out these useful intestinal flora. In such cases, buttermilk can be taken liberally.

 How to make Buttermilk at home for weight loss?

Making your own is as easy as combining just two ingredients, then letting nature take its course. You’ll need a small amount of store-bought cultured buttermilk (make sure it’s cultured), milk and a lidded container.

Pour about 1/2 cup of the cultured buttermilk into the bottom of the container. Make sure the container is large enough to accommodate the amount of dairy you’re working with.
Pour in 1 quart of milk. Whole milk is ideal, but 1 percent is perfectly fine. Stir to combine the milk and buttermilk thoroughly.

Place the lid on your container. (A standard Mason jar will do, or use any non-reactive container with a lid.) Leave it out on the counter at ambient room temperature.

After 12 to 24 hours, the mixture will thicken. The longer you leave it out, the thicker and tangier the buttermilk will be. Depending on how warm your kitchen is, it may also take longer. Once the buttermilk has reached the texture and flavor you desire, store it in the refrigerator for up to a month..

Use your buttermilk as you would store-bought buttermilk, like in a homemade buttermilk ranch dressing. When you are down about half a cup, you may repeat the process by adding your homemade buttermilk to fresh milk.
