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, prebiotics, probiotics, 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 Vegetables and was a Judge in the 2019 and 2023 Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria- Australian Food Awards.
He is the host of one of Australia's leading Nutrition Podcasts - The Gut Health Gurus Podcast where he frequently interviews health experts from around the world.
Kriben currently oversees Australia's premier Gut Health Facebook Group- The Nourishme Organics Gut Health Gurus, with more than 17,500 gut health enthusiastic members.
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 well-being. He found inspiration in the work of Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride through her book Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS): Natural Treatment for Autism, Dyspraxia, A.D.D., Dyslexia, A.D.H.D., Depression, and Schizophrenia. He started to follow a GAPS diet, made 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 of 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 whole genome metagenomic DNA-based stool testing to the public.
