What is Kefir?

Lifeway Kefir is a “live and active cultured dairy beverage with a tart and tangy taste and creamy consistency. It originated over 2000 years ago in the Caucasus Mountains and is associated with good health.” (source)

It is a powerful probiotic – live microorganisms (good bacteria) that may support immunity and a healthy digestive system.

What are the benefits of Kefir?

There are several evidence-based health benefits related to whole milk kefir:

  • More powerful probiotic than yogurt!
  • Potent antibacterial properties 
  • Can improve bone health and lower risks of Osteoporosis
  • Can improve overall digestion
  • May be protective against cancer
  • And more!

Why Lifeway Organic Whole Milk Lemon Kefir?

This truly is the secret ingredient in this salad dressing. Without it, you just have a simple vinaigrette that isn't as packed with flavor.

The Lifeway Organic Lemon Whole Milk Kefir is rich, creamy, and nutritious. It's made with only 1g of added sugar per ounce, making it the perfect addition to salad dressings.

Plus, their Organic Whole Milk Kefir is up to 99% lactose-free and gluten-free!
