What is Kefir and is it good for me?

Here’s the 101 on Kefir and you most definitely need to incorporate this secret weapon into your well-being toolbox!

This beverage ferments at ambient temperatures into a thin yogurt drink, full of a wealth of health benefits. The kefir-maker adds kefir grain-like colonies of yeast and lactic acid bacteria to the milk. These grains resemble cauliflower in appearance.

The grains’ lactic acid bacteria turn the milk’s lactose into lactic acid. This is what makes kefir taste sour like a drinkable yogurt.

What is fermentation?

When bacteria break down a substance during fermentation. Yeast or other microorganisms kick off this process. Fermentation is a metabolic process that produces chemical changes in organic substrates through the action of enzymes. Biochemistry narrowly defines fermentation as the extraction of energy from carbohydrates in the absence of oxygen.
