Milk kefir comes from the Caucasus, a mountainous region where the European continent meets Asia. It’s here that milk kefir earned its reputation as an elixir of long life and a medicinal tonic.
Milk kefir grains are a gelatinous mass harboring a generous variety of bacteria and yeast. They are used to make continual batches of milk kefir. There’s no actual grain in kefir grains. They are called grains because they are small and numerous, like grains of sand.
Kefir is closely related to cultures found in raw milk and our digestive tract, making it an excellent probiotic.

When kefir grains are added to milk, the bacteria begin feasting on the lactose in the milk. The lactose nourishes the grains, allowing them to grow and reproduce. Kefir has significanlty less lactose than fresh milk and is much more digestible for lactose intolerant people.

Not for human consumption. The grains have been grown in a certified kitchen, but are not registered. We use them for our consumption, but sell them for animal treatment only.
