Kefir is a natural fermented milk beverage being launched to the UK from Russia. Already well known to eastern Europeans, Russians and Scandinavians, Kefir originates from the Caucasus Mountain region of the former USSR.
Nourish Kefir claims it provides health benefits including immune system stimulation, lactose reduction and IBS relief. Kefir also contains vitamins and minerals, is easy to digest and suitable for vegetarians and people with lactose intolerance and diabetes.
Made with fresh cows' milk, which is pasteurised and then fermented, Kefir comes in 500ml bottles and contains no additives, preservatives, flavours or sweeteners. It is described as having a unique taste that's sour at first but with a creamy finish.
