Order Water Kefir
Water Kefir (Tibicos, Búlgaros, Japanese Water Crystals, California
Bees) is a wonderful mildly zesty fermented sugar-water beverage. It
can be likened to a natural, light and refreshing soda - perfect for a
healthy drink alternative. It can also be used to make Tepache. It has a
low glycemic load and no caffeine either. Most speculate it originated in
Mexico where it thrived in the sugary water of the Ountia (prickly pear)
cactus. To learn more about Water Kefir, navigate the links to the left.
Authentic kefir can only be made by real kefir grains, not from any
kind of packet or powder. The unique live and self-propagating
grains make this a beverage you cannot find in the stores. The
grains range in color from clear to brown depending on the sugar
used when fermenting!

Water Kefir, like milk kefir, is simple to make. It is fermented at room
temperature with kefir grains, water, sugar and dried fruit for about
24-48 hours. It has many health benefits, a great flavor and is also
well-tolerated by many diabetics (unlike regular soda pop). It's much
easier to make than yogurt, beer or wine, has a larger spectrum of
probiotics and the sustainable grains make it very economical. You can
even combine the benefits of water kefir grains and coconut water to
make delicious coconut water kefir.
