Bestselling author of The Good Gut Guide, Liz Earle MBE has been a respected and award-winning authority in the world of beauty, natural nutrition and wellbeing for more than thirty years. Working with Freshly Fermented, Liz has carefully curated the Liz Earle Wellbeing Good Gut Box to help you discover just how easy (and delicious!) fermented foods are to add into our daily diets.
“With these six organic starters, you’ll be able to make some of my all-time favourite ferments, packed with natural probiotics, to help populate your gut with beneficial bacteria and reap the myriad health and wellbeing benefits that come from having a healthier gut.”
The Liz Earle Wellbeing Good Gut Box contains the following:
5g Organic Milk Kefir Grains (makes 250ml)
20g Organic Water Kefir Grains (makes 500ml)
Organic Kombucha Scoby + 100ml starter tea (makes 1 litre)
Organic Turmeric Bug
100g Organic Chunmee Green Tea
300g Organic Certified Cane Sugar
Organic Bulgarian Yoghurt Starter or Short Strain Viili Yoghurt Starter if you who don’t have a yoghurt maker
Crème Fraîche Starter
Liz explains why she has selected these items to help start you on your gut health journey:
“I drink kefir every day without fail – you only need a small amount to gain from its goodness – and aim to add an extra spoonful into whatever I can – from stews to salad dressings, and even drizzled over a bowl of homemade granola (or slice of cake!).”
“Whilst there are typically fewer beneficial bacteria in water kefir than milk kefir, this dairy-free alternative will still make a very delicious probiotic low-calorie sparkling drink.”
“I’ve been making my own kombucha for over twenty years now. Your Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY) will turn tea into your new favourite tipple.”
“Turmeric, and its active ingredient, curcumin, has shown to be a powerful anti-inflammatory with a wealth of health benefits. By fermenting turmeric, we can increase its bioavailability so it can be absorbed into the bloodstream even more easily.”
Bulgarian Yoghurt or Short Strain Viili Yoghurt
“I’ve chosen this Bulgarian yoghurt starter as it makes a thick and creamy yoghurt. Alternatively, for those without access to a yogurt maker, I’ve selected this Scandinavian short strain viili which can be cultured at room temperature. It will make a thinner yoghurt, ideal for making smoothies.”
Buy a yoghurt maker from £24.20.
Crème Fraîche Starter
“I love the subtle tang of crème fraîche served up with puddings or spooned into soups, plus you get the addition of some useful beneficial bacteria when you whip up your own low-cost tubful.”
