The word kefir is believed to be derived from the Turkish word “keif,” which translates to “good feeling.” One taste of Straus Organic Kefir, and you’ll see why. Tart and tangy, this fermented milk beverage is similar to yogurt, but with a drinkable consistency.

The cultured lowfat milk drink is a nutritious choice. Our kefir is considered a good source of protein and high in calcium, it features 11 different beneficial live and active cultures. Other nutrient claims: low in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. Our fermented milk kefir is perfectly tart and delicious and available in two tasty flavors—plain and blueberry. Minimally processed, clean, and cultured with no gums, thickeners, stabilizers, artificial colors, or natural flavors.

Drink kefir on its own or use it in granola and smoothies or as a versatile ingredient in place of buttermilk, as a flavor boost in marinades and salad dressings, and much more.

Find our kefir at Whole Foods Markets, Sprouts Farmers Markets and natural grocers in California and select states West of the Rockies.

Organic Kefir



A Clear Difference In Sustainable Packaging

Our Organic Kefir is packaged in glass bottles. From day one in 1994, we have bottled our milk in reusable glass as part of our founding principles of sustainability, organic farming, and stewardship of the land. Today, we are helping create a circular economy and a zero-waste future with a long-term goal of having 100% reusable, recyclable, or compostable packaging.

A $3.00 deposit is added to your purchase and refunded when the rinsed bottle is returned to the store.
