Delicious Magazine Awards – Finalist

Delicious Magazine Awards of 2018 listed Nourish Kefir as a finalist in the prestigious produce awards.

We don’t enter lots of awards!  We’d like to think we are always doing our best by fermenting real kefir grains – producing what we believe is the most authentic, delicious kefir!
Customers who come back for more are our most important judges.  So too are the people who reach out to us, sharing their experiences about how drinking Nourish Kefir has made a positive impact on their gut health.  That is by far the best award!

Having said that, to be a finalist by the esteemed judges of Delicious Magazine is an achievement.  And we are thrilled to be recognised at a national level, as a small artisan kefir producer from South Croydon!

What the judges said: ” both your passion for your product and the provenance was clearly evident ”

Organic cow’s milk – what’s good about it?

Real Kefir grains to make our drinks

We use fresh organic cow’s milk that is delivered to our premises 4 times a week.
Our milk comes from OMSCO which stands for Organic Milk Suppliers Cooperative.
Omsco have the best standards, recognised world wide as UK organic cow’s milk is now being exported overseas!
For us making our authentic kefir drinks, OMSCO guarantee that the cow’s milk we use will be:

100% organic
Free Range
FREE FROM Antibiotics
From cow’s fed a natural grass-based diet
Grazed on pastures – Free from artificial pesticides
From farms with high standards of animal welfare
From farms that work in harmony with nature for bio-diversity

It ticks all the boxes for us.  But the reasons for using organic milk go further than this…We use this organic milk to grow our beautiful kefir cultures – known as kefir grains, as well as to make our authentic kefir drinks.

Kefir grains just love full fat cow’s milk!  Why?  Because it contains all the nutrients of fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals in its own natural liquid.  It is (most probably) the perfect medium for growing kefir grains.

We have been growing kefir grains in milk since Deborah first got hold of some in 2006.
Much of the scientific research into the health benefits of real kefir (going back over 40-50 years) refers to cow’s milk based kefir.

We never add sugar – the milk is enough.
We never add thickeners – the kefir grains create the thickness in the milk as they ferment it.
We never add preservatives – the kefir grains preserve the milk through fermentation!

2019 – New Year Happy Tummy!

Happy New Year Everyone!

We were delighted to see our beautiful natural kefir bottle featured in the weekend Telegraph as part of an article on kefir.

It’s so exciting that the UK is embracing the tremendous benefits of adding kefir to our diets.  Whether you buy our authentic kefir made from grains, use our starter cultures with your choice of milk, or make it yourself at home with your own live grains, your body will thank you with great gut health!

I’m just back from celebrating my 50th birthday in Las Vegas, what a place!  I looked in the food stores (in between casinos) for kefir – but did not see any, which is surprising as I’m sure it would be a very beneficial drink to have there!  Turning 50 has crept up on me so quickly…  And the past 13 years of my life have been devoted to starting a kefir revolution in the UK after it healed my gut and changed my life for the better!

One week into 2019, how is it going?  Have you made any resolutions?
My resolution is to spread the word about authentic kefir which is only made from live kefir grains, to bring new products to market, and to help people with gut problems to get their gut health back on track…
