I just had buttermilk pancakes a few days ago. No problems with me at all but then again I don't have much problem with foods and no problem with lactose. I'm assuming buttermilk has lactose in it, which gives many with UC problems.

Buttermilk contains probiotics. I'd prefer to include it in smoothies rather than normal milk. I actually like it straight from carton

I've tried it, it was commonly used by older generations in my family. Sadly I seem to deal with it badly though. That and yoghurt are worse for me than other dairy - which is not how it is supposed to be. I think my problems may be with whey rather than lactose as also not good with ricotta and other soft, unripe cheeses.
I'd give it a try and see how you go with it...

It gives me gas.

If you like it, drink it....don't assume it's going to be a horrible thing. Gas isn't going to make your UC worse, it will give you discomfort.

All you can do is try it.

Personally I prefer Kefir. It has many more cultures & from what I've read there are 2 types of bacteria often found in Kefir that can put someone with UC or Crohn's in remission. I really wish I'd saved that website where the study was published so I could share it.

I've only been culturing my own kefir for a week now so I can't say what the benefits are versus buttermilk. I have been drinking store bought kefir & notice an improvement in the bathroom department when I actually drink the stuff. Nothing conclusive however.

my dad LOVES buttermilk. same with my grandma. they've been drinking it for as long as i remember. my dad has UC and he tolerates it fine. i've tried it a few times and wasn't a huge fan.

indiana, what kind of milk are you using? i've been wanting to try making goat's milk kefir. just don't have any grains- they are so expensive to order online.

I love it. Don't have it often but it's used in a lot of Indian cooking and in ayurvedic medicine for UC as well as many other health issues. I didn't know it had probiotics in it actually.

I use buttermilk. I have cultured my own and it's delicious. I am not sure if the stuff in the grocery store is truly cultured. I know it sounds strange because it''s a cultured milk but it just seems like everything is done in the lowest quality, quickest way these days. I should check a container next time I am at the store.
