Got kefir?

Cook for someone who is lactose intolerant? You should know that according to a study conducted at Ohio State University, kefir, a type of fermented milk, may be a better option than yogurt as a milk replacement. Researchers found that kefir, while providing the same nutritional benefits as yogurt — such as calcium, potassium and protein — contains a wider array of beneficial microorganisms that were able to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of lactose intolerance in test subjects.
