About your teacher:
Kriben Govender, is a Food Scientist, Registered Nutritionist and Founder of Nourishme Organics,https://www.nourishmeorganics.com.au/a company specialising in Gut Health and Mitochondrial health-focused products and Allele Microbiome – a provider of cutting edge Metagenomic Stool Testing and Deuterium Testing.https://www.allele.com.au/
Kriben holds a honours degree in Applied Science (Food Science and Technology) and is a member of the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology and Nutrition Society of Australia.
With more than 20 years of Food industry experience in the field of Research and Development, Quality Assurance and Procurement, Kriben intimately understands the food supply chain and the interaction between diet and the gut microbiome. He has personally visited more than 100 food processing sites across the world. Kriben is an expert in the art of making fermented foods like Kefir, Kombucha and fermented vegetable etc and was a Judge in the 2019 RASV Australia Food Awards.
Around 8 years ago, Kriben's life imploded. He was extremely depressed, overweight and lacking in energy and vibrancy. He found himself alone in an apartment, ready to end his life. A combination of workplace bullying, stress, a struggle with anxiety and depression and a collapsed marriage resulted in a sense of worthlessness. For the sake of his 3 young boys, Kriben soldiered on and discovered the importance of gut health on his mental wellbeing. He found inspiration in the work of Dr Natasha Campbell McBride through here book Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS): Natural Treatment for Autism, Dyspraxia, A.D.D., Dyslexia, A.D.H.D., Depression, Schizophrenia. He started to follow a GAPS diet, make homemade fermented foods like kefir, kombucha and sauerkraut, adopted a transcendental meditation (TM) and yoga practice, attended cognitive behaviour therapy sessions with a psychologist, learned the Meisner and Alexander acting techniques - all which helped him overcome his struggle with anxiety and depression. With this newfound knowledge, he launched Nourishme Organics to help others heal their bodies via Gut Health.
Kriben then went on to found Allele Microbiome- a company focused on bringing cutting edge metagenomic DNA based stool testing to the public. He has been greatly inspired by the work of Dr Jack Kruse, Dr Gabor Somlyai, Dr Laszlo Boros and Prof Doug Wallace which let him explore the importance of Mitochondrial Health on overall health. Recently he has introduced Australia's first direct to public urine and saliva deuterium test and is in the process of launching Low D- A Deuterium Depleted Glacial Spring Water to optimise mitochondrial function.
Kriben is available for face to face or online nutrition consulting with a particular focus on Gut and Mitochondrial optimisation at The Nourishme Organics shop in Cheltenham, Melbourne. VIC.
This kit is such a good idea, from the decent sized borosilicate glass jars to the spring and squisher (? :)) that helps makes the 'cheese' more solid. I have just harvested my first lot from three batches that I've poured in as each one finished and it is really truly delicious! Tangy and creamy. What a bonus that it is so good for you too! Really happy that I invested in the kit. I used to do it with jars etc but this just makes the whole process so easy (and less messy).
This is the third yoghurt maker I have owned and it surpasses the other two hands down. Beautiful, thick organic yoghurt that simply tastes amazing!😍 I now have almonds soaking ready to try dairy free. The probiotic culture starter is fabulous, will definitely buy again. Thank you!♥️
Arrival of my Kombucha Jar was quick as watching grass growing and My jar looks so pretty on my bench like was post to be there.
I gave it a go as I am a first time kombucha maker, drinker and to my surprise it went of without a hitch.
So the only hard part is waiting for the fermenting part. This is going to be the fun part what flavoring and bottling and fizzing. And again the waiting game lol.
Thank you Carol
Looking forward to my next order as everything went so smoothly. I am so happy with the quality of the products ie the Sprouter Jars, the sprouting seeds, the milk kefir grains. Very reliable company.
Excellent and efficient.
And so easy to talk to for advice.
The organic Water Kefir Growth Premix is the easiest and best way to make your own water kefir at home. It literally takes the guess work out and reduces the whole process of making a fresh batch of water kefir to less than 5 minutes!
Excellent way to start in the fermentation/ pickling journey that provides great probiotics in the diet. The jar silicone air locks eliminate the “burping” of the fermented vegetables giving peace of mind!
Great service from NourishmeOrganics.
