CBS news interview clears up confusion about prebiotics and probiotics

by | Jul 13, 2018 | Featured, In the News

Many folks are confused about prebiotics and probiotics. Thankfully, there are experts such as Hy-Vee registered dietitian Melissa Bradley willing to share their gut health knowledge. She gave viewers a lesson on prebiotics and probiotics when she appeared on this Minneapolis-St. Paul CBS morning show. We’re honored that she included Regular Girl and our yummy chocolate hummus recipe in her explanation.

Bradley said that prebiotics and probiotics work together to boost gut health. She explained that a prebiotic is a carbohydrate that ferments in your colon. Prebiotics act as food for the probiotics, which are the beneficial microorganisms that live in our gut. “It’s important to maintain our gut health,” said Bradley, who added that a healthy gut may do more than just keep you regular.

She then explained that Regular Girl is an easy-to-take blend of prebiotic fiber and probiotics – and that it’s available at Hy-Vee stores – before making our fiber-packed chocolate dessert hummus. You can get the recipe here.
