WHAT IS WATER KEFIR?
Water kefir is a fermented, carbonated beverage that is produced using water kefir grains.
Unlike Milk Kefir, which is made from cow, sheep, or goat milk, water kefir is made by combining sugar water with water kefir grains — a type of grain-like culture of bacteria and yeast.
Water Kefir Grains are live probiotics in the form of soft, jelly-like ‘grains. When healthy and fed, these grains will continue to grow and multiply and produce an endless supply of water kefir.
Use Water Kefir Grains to make naturally gut-healthy, bubbly water kefir at home! It’s as easy as mixing sugar into the water - our Water Kefir Grains will do the rest.
Don’t worry, the sugar isn’t for you. The grains will metabolize the sugar during the fermentation process and the final kefir water will be very low in sugar.
