Organic Valley's buttermilk is enjoyed by many as a nutritious beverage with an old-fashioned flavor. Buttermilk is also wonderful for baking, lending a rich, hearty flavor and light flaky texture, with fewer calories than whole milk or cream. It is a great base for creating soups or salad dressings, and it makes an effective and flavorful marinade because of its high acidity. Buttermilk is often used to coat poultry and fish before frying or baking. The tangy flavor of buttermilk goes well with sweet fruits and desserts, as well. The name is deceptive because it contains no butter, and is actually a low fat dairy product. Buttermilk is an excellent source of calcium and riboflavin, and a good source of potassium and vitamin B12. A diet containing naturally fermented foods such as buttermilk, yogurt, sourdough breads, sauerkraut, and pickles provide enzymes which operate in the digestive tract to enhance digestibility of and assimilation of nutrients from food.
