Kefir is a fermented milk drink that originated in the Caucasian Mountains near Turkey, where it was used for centuries as a healthy drink.
How Kefir works
Kefir is a probiotic - a source of beneficial bacteria and yeasts which help maintain a healthy digestive system. These include Lactobacillus, Lactococcus, Leuconostoc, and Saccharomyces kefir. 5 sachets make 25L.
Kefir has been found to help maintain healthy intestinal flora.
Stir contents of 1x Kefir sachet into 1L of milk. Leave for 24-36h at 20oC or until Kefir starts to settle, then place in fridge for 12h. The Kefir is ready to drink when it has a smooth consistency, similar to thin yoghurt. Collect half a glass of Kefir - this can be used for a subsequent inoculation of 1L of milk. Repeat up to another 3 times to make 5L Kefir total.
Serve Kefir with your favourite fruit, or add a pinch of salt to add zest to the flavour.
