Curious About Kefir?
If you follow healthy food trends (or simply want to eat more consciously), you know adding Clover Organic Kefir to your daily diet delivers big benefits.
What is Kefir?
Kefir (pronounced kee-fur) is a creamy, pourable fermented drink made by adding active yeast cultures and beneficial bacteria to milk. It has a pleasingly tart flavor, similar to yogurt, and offers superior nutritional value as well as lots of live cultures for optimal gut health. In fact, Clover Organic Kefir’s ten distinct probiotic strains pack a whopping 250 billion live active cultures per serving!
Available in five yummy flavors—Traditional Plain, luscious Pomegranate Strawberry Acai, Mango Passion Fruit Pineapple, Perfect Blueberry and Summer Strawberry—Clover Organic Kefir brings much more than good taste to your table.
Kefir has been getting a lot of great press since Consumer Reports touted fermented foods among the new wave of nutritional rock stars. And that’s not just media hype. Research has proven the live probiotic and prebiotic cultures in fermented foods like kefir play a critical role in aiding digestion and bolstering the immune system.
What Are The Nutritional Benefits of Kefir?
The benefits of drinking kefir are numerous and well documented. In addition to being naturally low in calories (120 per one cup serving), Clover Organic Kefir is high in calcium and supplies 10 grams of quality protein to help meet your daily needs. For those who suffer from lactose intolerance, kefir has been shown to improve digestion and lactose tolerance by over fifty percent compared to plain milk (reported in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics). In addition, consuming fermented probiotic-rich foods like kefir as part of a healthy diet helps lower cholesterol, balances the gastrointestinal tract, may prove useful in the control of type 2 diabetes, and even decrease the likelihood of developing breast cancer!

Adding Clover Organic Kefir to your diet is a breeze! It’s a delicious, drinkable alternative to yogurt, and adds a nutritious boost to healthy smoothies.

It also stands up well in place of milk or buttermilk in recipes for baked goods, and the live cultures naturally tenderize meat when used in marinades.
