About Water Kefir Grains

Water Kefir is a delicious fermented sugar-water beverage with low GI loaded with live cultures. To this date, the real origins remain unknown and attempts to manufacture it in science labs have failed. This makes it a REAL food that cannot be artificially produced.

It comprises of 30+ beneficial bacteria and yeast strains (please see below for a list of some of them) which help stimulate and regulate your immune system and digestion. This cannot be matched by commercial yoghurts and probiotic supplements which on average have around 3 – 5 strains. I personally consume kefir on a regular basis which has eliminated my hayfever and eczma which I had since I was a child!

Water kefir is similar to milk kefir and is fermented at room temperature with kefir grains for about 24-48 hours. The difference is that sugar water is used instead of milk. It has many wonderful health benefits, a great flavor and is a great alternative to milk kefir for vegetarians or those who cannot tolerate any dairy. It’s extremely simple to make, has a large spectrum of probiotics and the grains live for as long as you take care of them unlike yogurt cultures which weakens in each successive batches.

Expiry Date and Packaging

These Kefir grains are packaging in 2 layers of plastic bags to prevent any spillage. We highly recommend you to purchase the kefir grains via the Express Post option so they do not stay too long in transit but as these are living fermented products, they will last approximately 2 weeks without any food from the day of dispatch.
