Summers are all about having soothing cold shakes, smoothies, and other such drinks. While some love to gorge on a bowl of curd during scorching heat others prefer chaach. Both are milk-based products and have almost the same nutritional value. Still, most of us are biased towards one of them. We are not sure about your pick but ours is chaah and that too for some really good reasons. Want to know about them? Keep reading.

Chaah or buttermilk is a more diluted form of curd. We are left with chaach after the butter is churned out of the curd. So, basically, buttermilk doesn’t contain butter. So ironical, isn’t it?

Anyway, back to the elephant in the room. Chaach is way healthier than curd because it is easier to digest and is known to be a good hydrator than curd. Besides these, chaach is perfect to get relief from an irritating stomach post having a spicy meal. It can help get rid of unnecessary fats from the body. So, the next time you go high on fat-rich foods, you know what to have in your kitchen. 

Moreover, curd contains lactose, hence those who are intolerant to it cannot consume the food. On the other hand, chaach doesn’t have this sugar and is perfectly suited for almost everyone. Chaach is also a good source of calcium which is essential for your bone health. Chaach is rich in good bacteria which are known to improve your body’s immunity and the drink is known to be vitamin dense too. 

In one of the studies in the field, researchers found that chaach contains a bioactive protein called milk fat globule membranes that are good for controlling your blood pressure and lowering cholesterol levels. These globules have anticancer, antiviral, and antibacterial properties too. 

You should ditch chaach only in a few conditions. For example, if you are trying to lose weight or you are malnourished. Also, those who are on dialysis and are on a fluid-restricted diet should not opt for chaach.
