 What is Kefir?

Kefir is a fermented drink that originated in the Caucasian Mountains near Turkey, where it was consumed for centuries. Kefir is traditionally made with kefir grains which requires a high level of maintenance and care. We have created an instant kefir starter culture which greatly simplifies the process of making consistency, delicious kefir, whilst maintaining all the health benefits.

It made up ok &

It made up ok & tasted good. I did feel nauseous every time I had some but came down with flu bug I think it may have been that coming on. I haven't been able to bring myself to drink anymore just yet so have got the grains in a sugar solution in the fridge for now until I'm feeling better & up to reactivating.
