What Is Kefir?
Kefir has a tart and refreshing flavour which has the consistency of drinking-style yogurt, but it contains beneficial yeast as well as friendly ‘probiotic’ bacteria found in yogurt.
The naturally occurring bacteria and yeast in Kefir combine symbiotically to give superior health benefits when consumed regularly. It is loaded with valuable vitamins and minerals and contains easily digestible complete proteins.
It can be made with many different types of milk, dairy and non dairy. It looks similar to yogurt but is far superior to yogurt. It is tangy and can be fizzy and can certainly dance on your tongue.
For the lactose intolerant, kefir’s abundance of beneficial yeast and bacteria provide lactase, an enzyme which consumes most of the lactose left after the culturing process.
