Organic Plain Kefir

2% m.g.


Format: 454 ml

Choosing nature with Liberté Organic.

Kefir is a complex fermented milk product containing bacteria and yeast, and is recommended by Canada’s Food Guide for its calcium content. With over 37 billion bacteria per 100 ml more than any yogurt it’s the champagne of probiotic milk beverages.

The history and tradition of kefir are as old as its reputation as a health product. In the countries of the one-time Soviet Union, kefir was used to treat stomach ulcers, gastric illnesses, chronic enteritis, bronchitis and pneumonia.

As with most other probiotic products, a dose of kefir is recommended daily for its full benefits to take effect. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by its effervescence. Liberté Kefir contains 20 different kinds of bacteria and yeast. A single tablespoon (15 ml) a day yields 5 billion beneficial bacteria.

Drink it by the spoonful or the glass or pour it over your favourite cereal!

Hi again, Need ++ kefir education. 1-Liberté's reply to Cathie states the list of bacteria & yeast strains in Liiberté's organic plain kefir, correct? 2- Have read that homemade kefir has 30-40 bac. & yeast strains, how come Liberté's has 20? 3- Is Liberté's kefir pasturized too or only the milk used to make the kefir?4- 20 bacteria & yeasts at beginning of process or in end product? :o)

What probiotics are in the effervescent Kefir. Any possibility of a list? Also, why is there a shortage of the effervescent Kefir. I used to be able to buy it at Costco but they do not have any in any store in around Vancouver, B.C.

I was looking at both the 1l and 454ml containers of plain kefir I purchased and note the non effervescent 1l does not contain yeast. How much and what yeast is added to the other. If grains are used to make this how is the yeast removed? Thanks.

Liberté From Liberté

Hello Del, the Liberté kefirs differ in texture and in the number of bacteria they contain. The authentic kefir contains lactic acid bacteria, probiotics and yeasts. In fact, the yeast gives the kefir its effervescence. The authentic kefir also contains some 22 billion live active bacteria per 100 ml. The non-effervescent kefir is made with lactic acid bacteria and probiotics, but contains no yeast. It has a smoother texture, like a yogurt drink, and a billion bacteria per 100 ml. Thank you and don't hesitate to contact us at 1-888-340-9306 if you have other questions.
