Kefir is a fermented dairy drink, full of probiotics and other healthy ingredients. It has a creamy consistency, a slightly tangy taste somewhere between yogurt and sour cream, and a mild aroma.
The movement to rediscover fermented foods and drinks is huge and there is good reason to be fascinated by the works of gut-friendly bacteria. We are happy to be part of this trend with our kefir – the first member of our new „harmonica biotic +“ range.
Why are probiotics important?
There are more than 500 different types of bacteria living in our digestive system. Here are the three main groups:
• Pathogenic (causing diseases)
• Potentially pathogenic (might turn into pathogenic under certain circumstances)
• Beneficial (having a positive effect)
The proper functioning of our digestive and immune system depends on the ratio between good and bad bacteria. Stress, irregular diet, antibiotics, lack of sleep are some of the many situations that cause the decrease of good bacteria. Probiotics help their development and keep our bodies balanced. So take them regularly and trust your gut!
What's in it
100% certified organic whole milk with no added water or salt or anything other than 6 selected lactic-acid cultures. The kefir then goes through very slow fermentation for 12 hours. The bacteria you will positively find inside are:
- Lactobacillus kefir
- Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis
- Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis biovar diacetylactis
- Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris
- Lactobacillus bulgaricus
- Streptococcus thermophilus
How it's made
Our product is made by adding kefir cultures. The result is a fermented dairy drink, full of probiotic bacteria that have been proven to help digestion, enhance the immune system and help balance the gut flora, where 70-80% of the good bacteria important to our health are located.
Fermentation continues overnight, for 12 hours. This is necessary because the microorganisms in kefir develop at lower temperatures and take longer to grow. Longer fermentation breaks down the sugars naturally found in milk, making them easier for the body to process. Kefir, like yogurt, contains less lactose than milk and is suitable for people with lactose sensitivity.
