Water kefir crystals or Kefir d'acqua are similar to milk or dairy kefir, but are cultured in a mixture of cane sugar, whole organic figs or other dried fruit, and organic lemons. These are true Japanese Water Kefir Grains, which differ from the milk kefir
grains in form and size. The other benefit is that one can consume more water kefir, over the milk grains, due to the fact that the grains are water based making it lighter in taste.
The organic water grains are very close in
make-up to the milk kefir grains with strains of lactobacilli, streptococci-lactococci,
acetobacter and yeasts.
Kefir consists of lactic acid bacteria and yeast existing in a symbiotic relationship. The benefits are similar to those of milk kefir (aka dairy kefir) but the average person will be able to consume larger amounts of it due to it's water base.
Originating in Mexico, water kefir grains (also known as Sugar Kefir Grains) allow for the fermentation of sugar water or juice to create a carbonated lacto-fermented beverage. Incredibly easy to brew, the starter culture can create a new batch of kefir every 24-48 hours. This makes a fantastic non-dairy alternative to milk kefir and can be flavored after brewing to make a variety of delicious sodas. If you are looking to replace soda pop, your
family will love it!
A very nice pro-biotic for vegans or other who do not wish to have dairy
in their diets!
Mothers who are looking for an organic
alternitive to soda will love this is a great
pro-biotic for kids.
It tastes just like lemon-aid, with all the
fuzziness, just like soda. But unlike
commercail soda, yours will be natural
carbonated with less sugar!
