Home of the good bacteria

Welcome to the home of good bacteria.

Kefir and yogurt are among the the healthiest food on earth. With the help of the good guys, the live bacteria aka live active culture, anyone can take a small step at attaining good health. However, this is only so when the product you choose says "live bacteria, or active culture, or live culture". Our products have live culture thus you get the full benefits from yogurt. Not only that, we use natural ingredients for most of our products - brown sugar, fresh fruit, farm fresh milk, natural sugar replacement(stevia), and organic eggs to name a few.

Just because it is healthy does not mean it is boring. At Yoggie's, we make sure that you get to love being healthy and say "it's so yummy!" all the way home.

But don't just take our word for it, take a look at some of our products:

Flaxseed in the Budwig Diet: Oil or Whole?

People who follow the Budwig Diet are posed with a problem of finding a suitable flaxseed oil.  In the first place, the oil is not popular in the Philippines and so there are but a few sellers.  Secondly, even if they do find one the oil easily becomes rancid when exposed to light and oxygen.  Third, it is temperature sensitive.

The solution I'm thinking of is to buy whole flaxseed and then extract the oil. It should be extracted using the cold pressed method and used within a week or two at most.  It should be stored in dark bottles to keep the light away from it and it should also be kept inside the refrigerator.

The criteria for choosing the best flaxseed oil are:

1.  Organic as much as possible.
2.  It should be as fresh as possible. (specially if organic flaxseed oil
is not available)
3.  Should be stored in dark bottles and kept under refrigeration.
4.  Should be cold pressed as the alpha-linolenic acid could be destroyed by heat.
5.  It should be hygenically prepared.

I hope that helps.
