#139. Is there a probiotic that is carbohydrate-free?

Full question: Is there a probiotic that is carb-free?

Response: Culturelle Probiotic for Kids (powder) by Amerfit is one product that is extremely low-carb. We also recommend eating foods regularly which contain probiotics to get a wide variety of microbes. Sauerkraut and apple cider vinegar are very low-carb and only a small amount is needed for a great boost of probiotics (1 T. sauerkrat daily or 1 tsp apple cider vinegar daily). Sauerkraut is also very high in fiber - an added benefit for keto diets. Greek yogurt that has active cultures added after it is pastuerized is also a low-carb, excellent source of probiotics. Dill pickles are another low-carb source of probiotics.
