Kefir has been called the "champagne of dairy products." Our kefir produces a rich, creamy drink with a bubbly effervescence which may be sweetened with honey or maple syrup to produce a refreshing and nutritious dairy treat.
This culture can be used with cow, soy or goat milk and may be re-cultured.
The culture can be re-cultured but it is a complex culture (many different cultures) and is very difficult to get consistent results without good temps and time controls on the ripening.
CULTURE INCLUDES: l. cremoris, l. plantarum, s. lactis, s. cremoris, s. diacelilactis, saccharomyces kefir, skim milk powder, ascorbic acid
