Kefir and Fermented Milk
In 1881, German doctor Edward Kern sent a letter to his botanical society
about a secret delicacy enjoyed by the people of the Caucasus Mountains.
According to lore this delicacy, which came in the form of a drinkable liquid,
rejuvenated health and prolonged life. The delicacy in questions was kefir,
one of the oldest beverages produced by milk fermentation. Through this
process kefir arrives at its delicious taste. Kefir derives its name from the
Turkish work "kef", which means health.
Kefir has become an important functional dairy food due to its scientifically supported physiological effects associated with good health and performance. This includes stimulation of the immune system by boosting nonspecific immune responses. This product is not intended to diagnose, mitigate, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
