I have been making Milk Kefir for over ten years, and I love to see how one can start with just
one teaspoon of Milk Kefir Grain, and within a few months, I would have a significant increase of
Milk Kefir Grains to give or sell to others.
Milk kefir is not a new fad with food that will fade with time. According to Revolution
Fermentation,” Milk Kefir has been around for several thousand years; its oldest traces were
found in a 4,000-year-old tomb in the Xiaohe of China.”
It has been said that more than 2000 years ago, the region between Russia and Georgia was
populated by nomadic mountain people. Who raised herds of goats and cattle for their milk.
These nomadic people would ferment milk in their leather skins with kefir grains. Milk Kefir was
a daily part of their lives; when the shepherds took kefir from the bottles, they added fresh milk
to make more milk kefir, passed down from generation to generation.
To get a healthy Kefir it is better to make it with cow or goat’s milk. It is made by adding kefir
grains into the milk to help colonies of yeast, and lactic acid bacteria, then leave to multiply and
ferment within 24 hours. One also has the option to make dairy-free kefir versions with coconut
water or milk. There is no benefit from dairy kefir.
The powdered milk kefir is loaded with nutrients, probiotics, and lactic acid bacteria that turn the
milk’s lactose into lactic acid so that you will have a sour taste like yogurt.
Kefir is filled with probiotics and contains up to 61 different bacteria and yeast strains, which
makes them a fantastic source of diverse microorganisms. These microorganisms
(probiotics) benefit health in many ways, such as immune health, gut health,
and mental health!
What is very crucial is that 80% of our immune system lies in the gut. The more beneficial
healthy bacteria, the better we will be. The probiotics in kefir are known to protect against
infections because the probiotic strains of Lactobacillus Kefir are unique to kefir.
The superfood that is easy to make in your kitchen. Fermented milk kefir forms with raw dairy
are usually better tolerated with lactose intolerance. The friendly bacteria can aid in healing and
balancing the gut flora.
