Benefits of Chaas, Buttermilk

Buttermilk is excellent for digestion as it is made from probiotic curd. It detoxifies the body and cleanses the intestines and is thus known to overcome acidity and prevent indigestion. However buttermilk used to make fermented dishes may not suit each one's digestive system. Buttermilk is lower in fat and calories as it is made with a combination of curd and water. Low fat buttermilk is comparatively further lower in calories than buttermilk made from full fat curd. Low fat buttermilk is low in fat percentage too and hence it is best recommended for obesity and heart disease. Buttermilk and low fat buttermilk both are a fair source of protein, riboflavin, potassiumvitamin B12 and calcium depending on the quantity of curd used.
