Who are we?
We are like you. Participants in a society offering limited alternative options, drinking chlorinated water, pasteurized milk, experiencing daily stress, working irregular hours and consuming processed food.
We are aware that chronic diseases, fatigue and cancers have increased dramatically and alarmed about what our modern lifestyle and “germ free” environment can do to our body’s defences and overall health.
Innovation. Learning from the past
In the wake of the growing worldwide processed food epidemic, Babushka’s has looked to the past for traditional healthy alternatives. Kefir, a cousin of yoghurt, with a stronger probiotic profile, reputation for longevity and an immune booster was an obvious choice. We enriched our kefir with ABC probiotics (Acidophilus, bifido and casei) and prebiotic inulin fibre, developing a product that offers health benefits beyond its basic nutritional value.
We are a father and son business, with limited production, supplying health food stores, independent supermarkets, delis, juice bars and fitness centres. We practice traditional and artisanal production methods and the proud result is a quality beverage with benefits beyond its nutritional value.
Two billion colony forming units (CFUs) per day is considered the minimum amount for the healthy maintenance of intestinal microflora. Please note that there is no maximum limit or “harmful level” of probiotics.
Kefir has been traditionally enjoyed chilled, easy to pour over your cereal breakfast.
A cup of Babushkas contains 50 billion CFUs when bottled. When stored at the correct temperature conditions these numbers are maintained for the duration of the product’s shelf life.
The suggested dosage after an antibiotic treatment or simply needing a boost is one to two cups a day. Similarly, a cupful is suggested for the occasional user, or when enjoying Kefir with your cereal for breakfast.
A quarter cup (62ml) daily, containing 12 billion CFUs, should be part of your long term digestive maintenance plan and as tonic for your immune system. In time, you will become aware that you will not catch the first cold, that you will be more regular, have less digestive discomfort and enjoy more energy and vitality. The longer term health benefits will be the bonus.
