With the Starter Cultures purchased from The Kefir Company you can prepare your own Kefir drink for only £ 14.99. The packets of Kefir powder allow you to make up to 100 litres of Kefir.
Kefir is a refreshing acidic drink that results from the fermentation of the milk using Kefir. The fermentation process provides a delicious drink (juice) that is slightly thicker than milk. Kefir contains beneficial yeasts (for example Saccharomyces unisporus, Kluyveromyces marxianus) and beneficial bacteria (including lactobacillus caucasus, kefyr) that live together harmoniously. For decades now, people have been making Kefir at home to benefit from its health benefits, but also to enjoy the special crisp taste.
Kefir is easy to make with the starter cultures from The Kefir Company, so it will cost only a fraction of what you would pay for the healthy dairy drinks at your local supermarket. Moreover, Kefir is not a product that stems from the fantasy of a large business, it is a product that comes straight from nature.
The Kefir Company Starter Cultures are an extraction from living Kefir grains in powdered form, but they still contain all the same properties and benefits as the original grains. Some consumers prepare Kefir using the original grains, but it is our belief that over time this may lead to the growth of foreign bacteria, making it less effective. So using this method and starting a new culture every 4-5 weeks results in the maximum health benefit for the consumer.

Myth or Not? Many people ask if it is true that the famous Lactobacillus Bulgaricus bacterium is found only in Bulgaria. The correct answer is no – you can grow the bacteria in different parts of the world (in fact many people do). What is unique about the Bulgarian strain is that only in Bulgaria it preserves its qualities in further generations of the same strain, i.e. if you use your previous yogurt to start your new batch. If this is how you make your yogurt outside Bulgaria, you will notice that after a batch or two, the yogurt loses its unique taste, physical appearance and qualities. Why this happens, scientists are not sure. It is often contributed to the unique climate of the region but there’s more to creating the perfect conditions for Lactobacillus Bulgaricus than the environment. So how can you prepare Bulgarian yogurt abroad? The answer is simple – use a dried-freeze yogurt starter culture with live Lactobacillus Bulgaricus that was produced in Bulgaria. Use a new culture with every batch of yogurt you make to preserve the unique taste and qualities of the yogurt. In this way you can achieve the traditional taste of kiselo mlyako (кисело мляко) similar to the one our grandmothers used to make, guaranteed.

History Balkan’s long and affectionate relationship with yogurt dates back to the Thracians, ancient inhabitants of the Balkan Peninsula before more than 3000 years when stock-breeders placed sheep’s milk in lambskin bags around their waists and fermented yogurt using their own body heat. The word ‘yogurt’ is derived from the words for ‘thick’ and ‘milk’ in ancient Thracian. In the early 1900s, a Bulgarian scientist called Dr. Stamen Grigorov, found an agent causing Bulgarian yogurt fermentation – a specific bacillus. Grigorov went on to pinpoint two more bacteria: a Streptobacillus and a harmful Streptoccus thermophilus which coexisted with that Lactobacillus in what appeared to be a perfect symbiosis. He also discovered that these two bacteria are not part of the micro-flora that exists in the human intestinal tract; however, they turn out to be very beneficial to it when introduced in it. Interested in Dr. Grigorov’s discoveries, another scientist, the Russian Ilya Mechnikov, a Nobel Prize laureate in Physiology and Medicine, went on to discover that more people lived to the age of 100 in Bulgaria than in any of the 36 other countries he studied. He directly linked this to the country’s most traditional food – yogurt. According to Metchnikoff’s research, the ageing process results from the activity of putrefactive (proteolytic) microbes producing toxic substances in the large bowel. Based on these facts, Metchnikoff proposed that consumption of fermented milk would “seed” the intestine with harmless lactic-acid bacteria and decrease the intestinal pH and that this would suppress the growth of proteolytic bacteria, that he called “Bulgarian Bacillus”.

ProBiotic Multi-Strain Pro22 is a powerful probiotic with added Prebiotic Pro-Flora. For individuals with digestive upset such as irregularity probiotics may be of benefit. Probiotics are a natural way to help balance the body’s internal bacterial environment. Probiotic effectiveness can aid with acute diarrhea, traveler’s diarrhea and upset stomach. These healthy bacteria help us properly digest our food, protect us from pathogens (harmful microorganisms), help us detoxify harmful compounds, produce vitamins and other nutrients and benefits our immune systems. But if you are to begin taking this type of all natural supplement, what should you be looking for? Well, first, you are looking for a mix of strains of bacteria, most notably different strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, often on labels as “L.” something and “B.” something.Those are the strains that have the most benefit to the human intestinal tract. One way to determine whether a particular supplement is of high quality is to see if the strains are purified, genetically characterized and registered, and this is most often demonstrated by letters and numbers listed after the name of the strain (such as La-14 or Bl-04). The next most important factor is just how much bacteria is in the supplement? This amount is often measured in CFU (Colony Forming Units), which is also the same thing as the Number of Organisms expressed in billions. There is no set dosage, as each person’s internal environment is different; however, very low dose supplements of 1 to 2 billion organisms are less likely to have a beneficial effect than supplements with 10 – 20 billion organisms. ProBiotic Pro-22 contains over 20 billion organisms, and it is shelf-stable and does not require refrigeration.
Kefir dates back many centuries to the shepherds of the Caucasus mountains. They discovered that fresh milk carried in leather pouches would occasionally ferment into an effervescent beverage. In the Caucasian Mountains, legend has it that the resulting kefir “grains” (not a true grain-but a combined culture of yeast and bacteria) were a gift to the people from Mohammed, who instructed them on how to use the grains. Mohammed strictly forbade them from giving away the secret of kefir preparation to other people, or pass anyone kefir grains, because they would lose their “magic strength.” This legend explains why kefir grains and the method for kefir preparation have been surrounded by mystery for so long. In fact, there is an incredible tale of intrigue starring a beautiful woman, Irina Sakharova, who stole the kefir grains from a prince for Russia, which is perhaps the only reason the world knows of kefir today.
