Why You’ll Love It

Water kefir grains create a carbonated lacto-fermented beverage from sugar water, fruit juice, or coconut water. Incredibly easy to use, the starter culture can create a new batch of water kefir every 24-48 hours. Water kefir makes a fantastic non-dairy alternative to milk kefir and can be flavored to make a range of delicious beverages, or as an ingredient in many recipes. Your family will love it!

About This Brand

Shortly after becoming first-time parents to our son, we were introduced to the idea of eating Real Food with an emphasis on traditionally prepared foods during a workshop on sustainable living. That introduction launched us on a journey that would become Cultures for Health. We spent the month following the workshop cleaning out our pantry and sourcing local food and starter cultures for making yogurt, kefir, sourdough, kombucha, and more. Within a short period we had completely shifted how we ate and for the first time we could truly feel good about the food we were eating and what we were feeding our little boy. A year later with a new baby on the way we were faced with the prospect of returning to a system where we would both have to work outside of our home. In an effort to avoid that, we started a small website offering about ten products. Two years later, Eric left his full-time management job and came to work at CFH full time. Throughout this process we have focused on...

We bought our first batch in July and they are still alive and going in January. We have ordered a couple more for friends and family and everyone loves how easy this is to make!

Going Great so Far

Delicious and easy to maintain

Since I've brewed kefir before, I was a little skeptical about the dried grains, but tried them and glad I did. They didn't smell bad from when I opened them from shipping, like wet grains do. They plumped right up after activation and I am now enjoying some good, fresh water kefir and saving a lot of money not buying bottled store kefir. My favorite flavors are ginger (kind of like a ginger ale flavor) and lemon! Nice product!

thrilled with my kefir

It turned out to be easy to use, and I’ve made so many wonderful flavors of Kefir, including almond ‘milk’ kefir which I adore, (almond milk not being really milk of course) and my grains just keep making more wondrous batches!
