If kale and broccoli aren’t your thing, the latest addition to the “superfood” roster might be cause for celebration.
New research from Korean scientists has found that swiss cheese has many nutritional benefits that could put it in the superfood category, according to a story at www.metro.co.uk. Swiss cheese contains a probiotic called propionibacterium freudenreichii, which has the ability to reduce inflammation and thus slow the aging process.
The same probiotic also can stimulate the immune system, according to researchers.
In 2015, the average American ate 1.1 pounds of swiss cheese, according to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service. By comparison, the per capita consumption of mozzarella that year was 11.3 pounds, cheddar 10.2 pounds.
