Someone asked me what is water kefir... so here's some of the basics.
This info is from @cultures4health - do check out their IG and website for even more comprehensive details on water kefir and culturing.
WHAT IS WATER KEFIR?
Water kefir is a probiotic beverage made with water kefir grains. Water kefir grains can be used to culture sugar water, juice, or coconut water.
What are water kefir grains?
Water kefir grains consist of bacteria and yeast existing in a symbiotic relationship. The term "kefir grains" describes the look of the culture only. Water kefir grains contain no actual "grains" such as wheat, rye, etc.
If you cannot tolerate dairy, or if you are just looking for an alternative to commercial sodas, water kefir beverages can be a fun, easy, and tasty way to quench your thirst while adding more probiotics to your diet.
