Seems like this would be a fitting place to put this. The food section didn't feel quite right.
Has anyone heard of this?
There's two types of kefir, milk and water. Milk kefir feeds off the lactose in milk and turns it into a slightly thicker probiotic beverage. Water kefir does the same thing, but with sugar water.
They contain 30-40 strains of yeasts and bacteria co-existing in a symbiotic union. It's interesting because you apparently can't create artificial kefir "grains". They've just evolved into what they are a long time ago, and they continue on by multiplying and people passing them around.
I just received water kefir "grains" in the mail today and I'll be fermenting the sugar water every 24-48 hours. They're little jelly blobs! Hopefully they will aid in my health!
