The Benefits of Curd

  • Have you noticed that the Curd section of most grocery stores has practically taken over the dairy Counter? It’s getting harder to find more traditional dairy foods, such as cottage cheese and sour cream, amid the sea of Curd options. But it only makes sense that a food with as many health benefits as Curd be given prime real estate in the supermarket.

          And just what are the  health benefits of Curd?

  • First off, your body needs to have a healthy amount of “good” bacteria in the digestive tract, and many Curds are made using active, good bacteria. One of the words you’ll be hearing more of in relation to Curd is “probiotics.” Probiotic, which literally means “for life,” refers to living organisms that can result in a health benefit when eaten in adequate amounts.
  • Miguel Freitas, PhD, medical marketing manager for Dannon Co., says the benefits associated with probiotics are specific to certain strains of these “good” bacteria. Many provide their benefits by adjusting the microflora (the natural balance of organisms) in the intestines, or by acting directly on body functions, such as digestion or immune function. (Keep in mind that the only Curds that contain probiotics are those that say “live and active cultures” on the label.)
  • And let us not forget that Curd comes from milk. So Curd eaters will also get a dose of animal protein (about 9 grams per 6-ounce serving), plus several other nutrients found in dairy foods, like calcium, vitamin B-2, B-12, potassium, and magnesium.
  • In fact, the health benefits of Curd are so impressive that many health-conscious people make it a daily habit. Here are five possible health benefits of having a Curd a day:

Benefit No. 1: Curd May Help Prevent Osteoporosis

  • “Adequate nutrition plays a major role in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, and the micronutrients of greatest importance are calciumand vitamin D,” says Jeri Nieves, PhD, MS, director of bone density testing at New York’s Helen Hayes Hospital.

  • Calcium has been shown to have beneficial effects on bone mass in people of all ages, although the results are not always consistent, says Nieves, also an assistant professor of clinical epidemiology at Columbia University.

  • ”The combination of calcium and vitamin D has a clear skeletal benefit, provided the dose of vitamin D is sufficiently high,” she adds.

    And what qualifies as ”sufficiently high?”

  • Currently, 400 IU per day is considered an adequate intake of vitamin D for people ages 51-70, Nieves says. (Look for the Daily Value amount listed on food labels.) But more may be better.

  • ”This amount is likely to be sufficient for most young adults for skeletal health, although many would argue that for overall health, more than the 400 IU may be required, even at these younger ages,” Nieves said in an email interview.

  • Nieves believes that older people specifically can benefit from more vitamin D.

  • Many dairy products, including some Curds, are made with added vitamin D. Find out which brands have added vitamin D by checking out the table below, and by reading labels when you shop.

Benefit No. 2: Curd May Reduce the Risk of High Blood Pressure

  • A recent study, which followed more than 5,000 Spanish university graduates for about two years, found a link between dairy intake and risk of high blood pressure.
  • ”We observed a 50% reduction in the risk of developing high blood pressure among people eating 2-3 servings of low-fat dairy a day (or more), compared with those without any intake,” Alvaro Alonso, MD, PhD, a researcher in the department of epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health, said in an email interview.
  • Although most of the low-fat dairy consumed by the study subjects was as milk, Alvaro believes low-fat Curd would likely have the same effect.

Benefit No. 3: Curd With Active Cultures Helps the Gut

Curd with active cultures may help certain gastrointestinal conditions, including:

  • Lactose intolerance
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Colon cancer
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • H. pylori infection

That’s what researchers from the Jean Mayer U.S. Department of Agriculture Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University concluded in a recent review article.

The benefits are thought to be due to:

  •  Changes in the microflora of the gut
  • The time food takes to go through the bowel
  • Enhancement of the body’s immune system

A recent Taiwanese study looked at the effects of Curd containing lactobacillus and bifidobacterium on 138 people with persistent H. pylori infections.

  •  The researchers found that the Curd improved the efficacy of four-drug therapy.
  • H. pylori is a type of bacteria that can cause infection in the stomach and upper part of the small intestine. It can lead to ulcers and can increase the risk of developing stomach cancer.

Benefit No. 4: Curd With Active Cultures May Discourage Vaginal Infections

  • Candida or “yeast” vaginal infections are a common problem for women with diabetes. In a small study, seven diabetic women with chronic Candidal vaginitis consumed 6 ounces of frozen aspartame-sweetened Curd per day (with or without active cultures).
  • Even though most of the women had poor blood sugar control throughout the study, the vaginal pH (measure of acidity or basicity) of the group eating Curd with active cultures dropped from 6.0 to 4.0 (normal pH is 4.0-4.5). These women also reported a decrease in Candida infections. The women eating the Curd without active cultures remained at pH 6.0.

Benefit No. 5: Curd May Help You Feel Fuller

A study from the University of Washington in Seattle tested hunger, fullness, and calories eaten at the next meal on 16 men and 16 women who had a 200-calorie snack. The snack was either:

  • Semisolid Curd containing pieces of peach and eaten with a spoon
  • The same Curd in drinkable form
  • A peach-flavored dairy beverage

Although those who had the Curd snacks did not eat fewer calories at the next meal, both types of Curd resulted in lower hunger ratings and higher fullness ratings than either of the other snacks.
