WI Dairy News: New dairy treat fits healthy lifestyle

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- People are continually looking for ways to achieve a healthy lifestyle and dieticians recommend a balanced diet that includes low-fat dairy products as one way. You've likely heard of the benefits of yogurt, but did you know that you can get similar nutrition in a dairy drink called Kefir?

Kefir is a product that has been widely available in Europe for many years, and now it's taking hold in the United States.

"It's similar to yogurt in that it has the probiotics and stuff that yogurt has," explains Don Blanchard, plant manager at Weber's Farm Store. "It's just a different way to be able to consume the product as a drinkable one instead of having to spoon it you can just drink it out of the bottle."

Although Weber's Farm Store continues to provide fluid milk and cheese, Kefir offers a new choice for consumers interested in local farm fresh dairy products.
