Kefir is a cultured, fermented drink with powerful benefits for gut health. Similar to its sister-beverage, Kombucha, Kefir is made using a natural ‘starter culture’ that combines yeast, protein and healthy bacteria which when fermented produces a live culture beverage rich in beneficial bacteria.
Commonly, kefir is made with dairy milk however it can also be made with plant-based milk or water alternatives. Some kefir, like Nexba’s Strawberry and Peach Kefir, is made with coconut water which results in a thinner, more drink-able texture. Plus, it’s vegan friendly!
Water based kefir is a fermented, carbonated beverage that is produced using water kefir grains. Also known as California bees and Japanese water crystals water kefir has been around since the 1800’s!
