Once you've experienced the refreshing and health-enriching qualities of water kefir you will not want to touch another empty-calorie soda again. The fact that you can flavor it however you want (raspberry-mango carbonated drink or blueberry-coconut, whatever!) makes it even that much better.

We enjoy drinking this ourselves and are always happy to share it (and our recipes) with others. All you need is water, sugar and some dried fruits to keep your grains alive and happy and make delicious water kefir! We've found it to be a very rewarding experience and economical to boot. :)

This is one pro-biotic beverage you will not even find in the stores. We are very meticulous in making sure we nurture, feed and gently handle our kefir to promote vibrant healthy grains.

All of our grains are fed and nourished daily with organic whole cane sugar (and occasionally blackstrap molasses and organic dried fruits). Our kefir grains have been built over time from multiple sources worldwide to ensure that our grains have strains that are strong, balanced, diverse, vibrant, and flexible. Our little guys live in a clean home where organic, non-toxic cleaners are used and there are no toxic by-products in the air. Culture-friendly materials are used at all times when handling the grains. We want to support and respect the health of our cultures, ourselves and the world at large!

Our dehydrated grains are dried fresh each week quickly and gently to ensure vibrant, active and healthy grains upon reactivation.

What You Will Receive

*Dehydrated (Dried) WATER Kefir Grains: You will receive approximately 1 tablespoon of dried kefir which will rehydrate to make atleast 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) of Water Kefir. This will produce 4-6 cups of delicious water kefir starting out (using the standard ratio). Our grains are grown in Organic Whole Cane Sugar. This sugar makes for extra healthy and happy kefir grains. It also gives it a slightly brown tint (as pictured). These are hardy, freshly-dehydrated and ready to produce once fully rehydrated! Keep in mind that these grains can thrive in any desired sugar and will change color based on the sugar used. Look inside your package for a unique informative card!

*Detailed step-by-step PICTURE e-Guide with instructions: Everything you need to know for caring for your grains and making great kefir.

*Recipes: Including various flavoring, smoothies, and Italian sodas.

*Free email support for all your questions!

What’s the Difference Between Dehydrated and Live Grains?

Dehydrated Water Kefir Grains are grains that have become dormant after being dried. Dried grains can take several batches before becoming fully active and able to grow (it is considered drinkable after a couple or so batches, though). Dried grains are less expensive and can travel further distances with less risk. Great for international destinations. You can also store these grains if you aren't ready to use them right away.

We do offer LIVE water kefir grains as well in our shop. Live water kefir grains are fully active right away, take less time to balance and are more likely to grow sooner.

Traveling To Its New Home (shipping)

We pack our starter securely to ensure a successful journey to your home, wherever you may be. You will also receive a detailed, step-by-step instructions e-guide on how to get started and care for your kefir. You are more than welcome to email us with any questions you may have now or in the future! Our grains are packaged nicely with a unique display card perfect for gift-giving.

A Little Bit About Water Kefir in General

What is water kefir?

Water kefir grains create a zesty and delicious carbonated lacto-fermented beverage. It is thought to have originated in Mexico, originally fermented with the juice of the Prickly Pear Cactus. Water Kefir grains are also know as Tibicos, Tibi, Sugar Kefir Grains, Graines Vivantes, Japanese Water Crystals and California Bees. Water kefir, like milk kefir, consists of bacteria and yeast existing in a complex symbiotic relationship. The benefits of water kefir are similar to those of milk kefir, and are a perfect alternative for those who wish to avoid dairy, or just want another tasty addition to their pro-biotic menu!

Water kefir is loaded with valuable enzymes, easily digestible nutrients, vitamins and minerals. It is even suitable for some diabetics due to the low GL. It has long been known to promote and aid in digestion and overall health. Genuine kefir is different than the overpriced kefir you can buy in the stores, which is just a simulated drink to mimic the flavor but is not produced by the traditional method, and thus lacks the quality and health benefits of true kefir.

Is Kefir Easy to Make?

Yes, water kefir is fun and easy to make, and not something to feel intimidated by at all! It can be made with any type of sugar and fruit. You can create whatever taste you desire by choosing your favorite sugar and fruit. There are many delicious combinations out there and the resulting flavors with this are quite endless!
