Delicious Magazine Awards – Finalist

At Nourish Kefir we are delighted to be recognised as a finalist in the Delicious Magazine Awards of 2018.

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?

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.
They guarantee that the milk we use will be:
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

We use this organic milk to grow our beautiful kefir cultures – known as kefir grains, as well as to make our authentic kefir drinks.  Nourish Kefir is made from kefir cultures fermented in milk – that’s all!  No thickeners, preservatives or additives are used.  We keep it pure and we keep it real, because that’s what we believe is the best kefir and that’s what we want you to have!

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…

The Goodness of Kefir Q&A

Wanted to share an email that we answered yesterday…

David emailed us with his dilemma saying: “I have been buying your kefir for a while now and I’ve now tried making my own with your starter kits and it’s working out well.
My question is: I kinda still find it hard to drink.  So I’ve started making smoothies with the kefir with mixed frozen fruits, and it’s really nice to drink, but does it take away any of the goodness of kefir?  I am suffering with ibs and want all the goodness? Any advice would be really appreciated.”

Here’s how we replied: “So, here are my thoughts about the effectiveness of kefir when blended – such as with fruits etc. I think it is totally fine and still fully effective.
I would try to keep some natural kefir to drink –  perhaps a small glass before bed!

But blended kefir will obviously taste great – and should assist your digestion of the other ingredients.  For example – kefir and chia seeds is a great combo to get the good bacteria, fibre and omega 3 from the seeds – and is great to make with a still warm fresh batch of kefir made with our starter cultures.

And kefir mixed with frozen fruits will still be good too – so yes, go for it. You are not diminishing the effectiveness of the kefir .”

I hope this is helpful to anyone who doesn’t really enjoy the natural kefir taste… but wants to know they are still getting the benefits when they blend it with fruits.  xx

Making Some Me Time…

Having a relaxing start to the day with my favourite kefir drink and enjoying the latest issue of Liz Earle Wellbeing.

This Winter issue has lots of ideas for the festive season. As well as tips for keeping your gut healthy. We suggest keeping some bottles of Nourish in the fridge or Starter Cultures to make some when you need it!

Liz draws our attention to Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Week: 1-7th December.  Having suffered with crohn’s for almost 10 years I know first hand how increased awareness creates more understanding about the  conditions.  I will always be grateful to have discovered the healing benefits of kefir made from grains.  As you probably know it’s the reason why Nourish Kefir came about!

Have a lovely Friday,
