The Kefir Culture by Jeren



Kefir is starting to become a buzzword in the Healthy Circle. All I know is that it is 100% probiotic like drinking Yakult, it is more nutritious than yogurt, and Chinese families use it as a secret natural healing drink. Kefir Power, promoted by Cory Quirino, was the first one to offer Kefir in the local market. Milk Kefir is also now available from The Kefir Culture in Arama, Serendra.

I got interested in Kefir because of Jeren's Kefirlicious Ice Cream. They joined the Ultimate Taste Test to introduce their commercially available Milk Kefir, which rated 3.4 out of 5.0. Some people who understand the health benefits of Kefir liked it. Some people did not like it because of its super sour taste --- more sour than yogurt. Some people think it is expensive but it is relatively priced lower than its competition.

Ultimate Taste Test Event-24

As a Food Technologist and Enzyme Therapist, I am very curious with and interested in natural food that strengthen our body and boost our immune system. This inquisitiveness led me to study food enzymes and their beneficial effects on our physical well-being. With this knowledge, I was able to help quite a number of people who were suffering from different kinds of incurable diseases like diabetes, asthma, lupus, arthritis and cancer, to name a few.

About a year ago, my Chinese friend introduced me to kefir.  He’s taking it on a daily basis to cure his illnesses. Curious, I started my research work on kefir immediately. Impressed with my findings, I began experimenting and developing “milk kefir” out of raw milk and a tablespoonful of kefir grains.

Kefir is a cultured, enzyme-rich food (both microbial and digestive enzymes) filled with friendly micro-organisms that help balance our “inner ecosystem.”  Though it tastes a bit sour, kefir is refreshing and more nutritious and therapeutic than yogurt because it supplies complete protein, essential minerals, and valuable B vitamins.

After numerous trials and errors, I was able to master the fermentation process of kefir using fresh raw milk. As my “milk kefir” passed the discriminating taste of my friends, I began to market it to my other acquaintances who recommended it to their own sets of friends and acquaintances. As the demand for it increased, I decided to venture into mass production. Those familiar with its selling price in the market will certainly be surprised to find out that my pre-introductory price is only P240.00 per liter. 

To maximize its health benefits, I integrated milk kefir in a 7-day diet program. So far, all of those who underwent this diet program got positive results like regular bowel movement, greater stamina, resistance to illnesses, and weight loss of 5 to 10 pounds.

Studies show that kefir could treat or cure allergies, acne, arthritis, rheumatism, wrinkles, gout, liver diseases, kidney stones, gastritis, pancreatitis, ulcers, constipation, diarrhea, hypertension, heart diseases, lung infections, yeast infection, and many other illnesses.

To make kefir more enjoyable and refreshing, we may add fresh fruits, muscovado or honey into it. With this special mix, our children will surely love it and ask for more.

hi anton,

can we get the details for the 7 day diet?

Yeah. Whats the 7 day diet regimen.

OK, I'll ask Jeren to post the details of the diet...

I have tried the mango kefir ice cream and its absolutely delicious. Mango Sorbet only it is healthy. Much much better than yogurt. I recommend it to all the ice cream lovers yet at the same time health conscious (aren't we all nowadays).

Thanks Joey :) and nice meeting you... I'll catch you one of these days

I really love your site. Very informative! This is one site that I really looked up to. This is like a "sari-sari" store where everything you need is available :) Keep on blogging.

God Bless!

hi doryll,

regarding the 7 day diet, you can send me an email at

Is milk kefir same as ordinary low fat milk? Can milk kefir safely replace my daily consumption of milk? Same benefits as ordinary milk? Hope you can provide us with nutritional/calorie infos. Thanks! I'm a newbie to kefir so sorry for my questions ;)

Delicioso! I've ordered a lot of kefir liters from Jeren already. It works for me. Y'all have to try it. =)

I tried Kefir with the GM diet (7-days). I've documented my weight loss on my website: :)

I lost 8 lbs in 7-days and am able to maintain it :) I'm quite addicted to kefir and it really does help

I've been wanting to try kefir for a while...I've heard so many good things, and then all the great reviews here! I'm a huge fan of probiotics, and I take mine in a supplement called Flora Source. But it's nice to get probiotics and enzymes in food as well, I'm definitely going to try kefir milk soon.

I will ask Jeren's help to answer your questions...

hi jeren.. i've read your blog... it's nice.. hope to see you... gusto ko matikman.. heheh! i love icecream and at the same time health conscious... :)

hi nutella,

kefir is far superior than your low fat milk since its nutrients are partially digested it is easily absorbed by the body, it contains good microorganism that can balance our microflora which is good for our digestion, so it is very safe to replace your milk. it is even recommended for lactose intolerant people and for those on a diet.

I love Jeren's kefir (vanilla and mango!) and make sure I get some whenever I pass by Serendra. I want to try the milk kefir too and will order soon - so, see you, Jeren! And what's this blog they are talking about? What's the url? :)

Jeren's kefir is the best! It gives me extra energy and that "light" feeling after my morning rituals (hehehehe). I understand she could prepare a special blend or mix upon request. Check it out, guys! You'll love it. "To taste is to know." :-)

ah it taste superlicious ice cream

kefir help me to cure my UTI
thanks jeren...
we will order soon again,ill pass by one of this day....

I was a participant in the Ultimate Taste Event where I was introduced to Kefir. It has solved my dyspepsia (stomach bloating) issues which was bugging me for the past three months. Great product!

Wow, Thanks a very good testimonial Ricky :)

They are closed na. But they are available in the Health Stores.
