Kefir (said keh-fear) has been enjoyed around the world for over two thousand years. It’s a cultured milk drink, made by fermenting milk with live cultures, much like a traditional yoghurt… but what sets kefir apart is the diverse blend ‘n’ numbers of live cultures, in fact ours boasts a whopping 13 different strains! Not only nutritious, it’s mighty tasty too – a smooth ‘n’ silky fermented milk that’s set to get tongue’s tingling!
The Collective kefir contains billions of live cultures, in fact, there are 60-65 billion cultures per 220ml serving of kefir! What makes The Collective kefir special is the diverse blend of 13 different culture strains, which makes it different to standard yoghurt, which will have on average 2-5 culture strains.
The Collective’s kefir is made with the finest natural ingredients, including British milk, it is low in sugar with sugars only coming from fruit and milk and a dash of honey in the coconut flavour. Like all The Collective dairy goods, it’s vegetarian and gluten free.
The Collective’s kefir has a high source of protein, which contributes to growth and maintains muscle mass.
The Collective’s kefir is a source of protein and calcium. Calcium contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth. Protein contributes to the maintenance of bones.
The Collective’s kefir is a source of Vitamin B12, which helps your immune system function normally. Vitamin B12 can also help release energy from food (a process called energy-yielding metabolism) and helps keep the nervous system healthy.
Vitamin B2 and B12 are both found in The Collective’s kefir and contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
“I’ve been recommending fermented milk kefir to my clients for the last few years and have seen some phenomenal results in improving their digestive health.”
“They also gave great feedback about how much they enjoyed eating real food to get the live cultures into their diet instead of probiotic supplements. Following from this, I made fermented milk kefir a cornerstone of my books The Gut Makeover (2015) and The Gut Makeover Recipe Book (2016) which have helped thousands of people.”
