UK cheesemaker Singletons & Co. has launched a new cheese made using live kefir cultures.

Kefir Cheddar comes under a new brand from Singletons & Co. called the Cultured Cheese Company and is being stocked in 300 Sainsbury’s stores across the UK.

Handcrafted using local milk the cheese, which took two year to develop, has a mild, ‘yogurty’ flavor and hit shelves on July 12.

Jak Blanthorn, UK account manager at Singletons & Co. said, “This has been an exciting project to work on. We’re conscious of consumers’ increased focus on health and their interest in gut-friendly bacteria in particular, so have worked to create a cheese that not only aligns with their interests but also tastes fantastic.”
