Kefir (Using Easy Kefir Packets)
I love making kefir from Easy Kefir and do so often. Easy Kefir is made from kefir grains that have been freeze-dried and ground into powder. You'll receive the benefits of kefir grains with the easiest way to make kefir you can imagine. I still love kefir grains and always will and think they're slightly better, but for those of you who are busy and worried about taking care of kefir grains, this is so easy, it's almost foolproof. You will get the many bacteria in kefir grains instead of just a few in other brands of powder made from kefir and you can make big batches. With its numerous beneficial strains of organisms, kefir is more potent than yogurt. Most yogurts have 3 to 7 probiotic strains of good bacteria and good yeasts, while kefir has over 50. Since Easy Kefir is a powder made with freeze-dried grains, you receive numerous strains of probiotics. It contains over 3 billion live bacteria and over 50,000 lactic yeasts per gram. The kefir made with Easy Kefir will typically contain +/- 1 billion active bacteria. Another wonderful thing about Easy Kefir is that it works on non-dairy kefir too. Check out our recipes to make sure you add a little more food to non-dairy kefir. We have 16 Non-Dairy Kefir recipes.
