About kefir

Kefir is a fermented food with vitamins, minerals, and probiotics that makes it a favorite for health-conscious people. It is similar to yogurt in that it is fermented, and it is also dairy, and they are normally treated similarly. While there are many types of fermented milk, such as cottage cheese, cheese, and yogurt, kefir is a unique variety. From helping to increase focus to purported positive effects on longevity, there are plenty of reasons to enjoy kefir today.

Milk kefir is made with cow's milk, goat's milk, or even vegan milk like coconut milk. Due to its fermentation process, it is 99% lactose-free, which makes it a great option for people with sensitive stomachs.

Kefir can be found in any number of flavors. It's commonly fruit-flavored or vanilla-flavored, but you can also find plain kefir to enjoy as it is or add your own flavoring. You can also add it to smoothies for a health-supporting treat. The delicious snack is satisfying, and it may help to reduce cravings for sugar and sugary foods. Commercial kefir production began to ramp up in the 1950s. It spread throughout Europe, and it is now widely available in grocery stores all over the world.

There are many anecdotal health benefits to drinking kefir. It and other fermented foods have been studied and proven to help give the stomach a supply of “good” bacteria that makes it more able to keep the body healthy and heal faster. People of all ages enjoy kefir, and it was traditionally passed down in families during the process of fermenting it. Now, you have the convenience of store-bought kefir delivered right to you.
