What is Kefir?

Kefir is very famous in Russia and former Soviet countries. There it is used to make certain types of desserts, breakfast and cold soups.

Kefir enters the dishes of many culinary cultures, especially in the culinary cultures of Asia and the Caucasus. In these countries, kefir is produced not only from cow's milk, but also from goat's, sheep's and even horse's milk.

Recently, there has been a lot of interest in this product, because scientific studies have proven, that it contains many probiotics, which have a beneficial effect on our body.

Why kefir is healthy

Use milk, which is organic and obtained from free-range cows. This milk is mixed with probiotic sourdough, the composition of which includes 6 types of microorganisms. Some of them are extracted from kefir grains, which are a combination of bacteria and yeast, and those that remain are left to take care of the unforgettable taste.

Kefir fermentation lasts between 12 and 15 hours and the temperature should be 90°F (30°C). Neither water, nor salt is added.
