Fermented Milk Products from All Over the World. Xynogalo or Xynogala (ξυνόγαλα) Greece
This is a particular type of homemade kefir prepared in Greece, originally made from goat or sheep’s milk, although in modern days it is made out of cow’s milk. The reason Greeks live such long and healthy lives is believed to be their famous Mediterranean diet, which also includes dairy products, mainly prepared from the previously mentioned animals, and not from cow milk. As scientists found out later, the casein present in goat or sheep’s milk is more suitable for our digestion, has less fat, and it is more nutritious. Thus, xynogalo made out of this types of milk, which is still widely consumed in Greece, promotes a healthy digestive system and, at the same time, a great immune system.
