Yorvale introduces Yorlife Kefir

Yorvale has announced the introduction of Yorlife Kefir fermented milk drinks, developed in conjunction with natural fast food chain Leon.

The offer comprises three flavours – Natural, Blueberry & Elderflower, and Mango & Passionfruit – and is made by adding live yeast cultures (kefir grains) to milk from the company’s Friesian cow herd which is then fermented.

“I researched natural ways to improve energy levels and discovered the magic of kefir, which I started to make at home,” explained Yorlife’s commercial manager, Tim Robinson. “Enthused with my rediscovered wellness, I suggested kefir as a new product to my colleagues. As a company, health, wellbeing and balance is important to us, so kefir, which is renowned for its high levels of beneficial gut friendly bacteria, calcium, phosphorus, vitamins and minerals, sits well with our ethos.

“We set to work developing Yorlife Kefir and we’re really pleased with the resulting drink that is delicious on its own, or a versatile ingredient in smoothies and other recipes.”

Lesley Buxton, Yorvale director, is delighted with the product: “I am really excited about this range. Kefir is increasingly popular with more and more people taking steps to look after themselves and their gut health and we are proud to have produced something which is not only really good for you, but delicious too.”
