Does any commercial brand of cheese possess antibiotic activity?


Recommended Posts

Sorry, no antibiotic cheeses, in fact you don't want antibiotics in cheese as they could prevent the fermentive bacteria from doing their job.  Same with yogurts - the probiotic cultures need to thrive, being bacteria that help you digest that food.

Some herbs and spices are somewhat antibiotic, like ginger or turmeric or garlic, and they don't bother the good gut bacteria.  Apple cider vinegar is also a good one (and also reduces phytates in foods, which then improves zinc absorption and thus can boost immune response).  Oregano is antifungal.  

IOW, eat lots of curry and Italian!  😀
