Proven on Trust Me I'm a Doctor
We are the original British producers of organic traditional kefir drinks, made from live kefir grains since 2007. Our products have been tried and tested by scientists and featured by Michael Mosley on the BBC's Trust Me I'm a Doctor. In the summer of 2016 we supplied 280 samples of our drinks for a one month trial with 10 participants. The aim of the trail was to compare kefir to commercial probiotic shots and inulin, to see specifically which of these products actually worked (or if they didn't work). Their effectiveness was being measured by testing the bacteria contents of the participants both before the trial and at the end of the trial. When the programme was broadcast on TV in Feb 2017 it was like the world woke up to the amazing effects of real kefir.
The results demonstrated how the gut microflora of the people taking our drinks had changed and become populated with new gut friendly bacteria. Our results were so good because of the way we make our drinks - with the actual real cultures - which is an artisan skill and art of fermentation!
Our products have also been featured on Channel 4's Superfoods Programme, and the BBC Radio 4 Food programme.
Made From Real Kefir Grains
Nourish Kefir drinks are made by fermenting live cultures - known as kefir grains in organic cow's milk or goats milk. From start to finish we do all the culture fermentation here at our dairy in South London. It takes us 5 days of fermentation to prepare the kefir cultures for each batch we produce. Why do we do this? We genuinely believe that our range of drinks made from living grains is the absolute best for your gut! Because of the way we ferment our cultures, each batch has a unique set of gut-friendly micro-organisms, meaning that each bottle unique.
You won't find added sugar, additives, thickener or preservatives in our drinks. We always use fresh whole milks which are the best nutritionally. In addition to the gut health transformation of our founder, we have done the research into what makes the best kefir. And with 12 years of testimonials, we have a proven track record of our product quality and effectiveness.
We are fermentation experts and hope that you will notice the difference in the authentic taste of our products. Looking after kefir grains is what we do best! They are a living organism, needing loving care and attention, but the end result is definitely worth it!

Who Are We?
Our founder Deborah discovered the amazing effects of kefir in 2006 when it healed her Crohn's disease and IBS. She was so impressed she decided to launch kefir in the UK to help others as much as it helped her! Deborah went from making kefir for herself in her kitchen, to giving up her day job and starting the Nourish Kefir brand, which was first sold in the UK in 2007.
She went from importing real kefir, to learning how to ferment large batches and in 2009 she made the investment to set up her own dairy. After years of developing our fermentation processes our professional team are experts in kefir grains. Taking care over all the nuances and quirks of looking after these special cultures, we deliver you the premium range of fermented milk drinks that are nourishing, refreshing and delicious!
