Kefir has many benefits including better digestion of fats, proteins and
carbohydrates, and has been known for thousands of years for its
anti-aging and immune enhancing properties.
Kefir is an ancient cultured food rich in amino acids, enzymes,
calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and B vitamins. Kefir means "feel good"
in Turkish, and that's just how you'll feel after drinking a glass in
the morning! Easy and fun to make at home, it is superior to commercial
yogurt. An absolute must after antibiotic use!
Unlike yogurt, kefir can actually colonize the intestinal tract and is simple and fun to make at home.
Body Ecology Kefir Starter contains the following beneficial bacteria:
- Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis
- Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris
- Lactococcus lactis subsp. diacetylactis,
- Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris
- Lactobacillus kefyr (thermophilic)
- Klyveromyces marxianus var. marxianus
- Saccaromyces unisporus
- dextrose as a carrier (consumed during fermentation)
Contains 6 packets which can be used an average of 7 times each. 1/4
cup of previous batch will ferment 1 quart of liquid. 1 cup will make
one gallon, and so on. For prolonged shelf life, keep refrigerated
To activate starter for initial usage:
- Into container (preferably glass with lid), mix together the entire
contents of one foil package of kefir starter and one quart of slightly
warmed milk (about skin temperature or 92 degrees).
- Shake, stir or whip with a whisk to mix well. Put lid on container.
- Let this mixture ferment at 72-75 F for 18-24 hours for milk,
24-48 hours for coconut water and some others. (You will notice it is
ready if the milk has thickened and has a distinctive, sour fragrance.
Final consistency is pourable but not "eat with a spoon" thick.) Coconut
water will not thicken like milk, only become cloudy and much less
- Shake or stir vigorously and place into the refrigerator. Even
in your refrigerator the fermentation process continues, but chilling
will slow down the fermentation of the healthy bacteria and beneficial
Directions for transferring kefir after the initial batch has been
made and directions for making kefir cheese are included on packaging.
Donna Gates recommends adding kefir starter to the liquid found inside the young, green coconut.
Kefir is traditionally made with cow's milk, but can be made with
soy, coconut, rice, goat, or sheep milk (other varieties of milk yield a
more watery kefir than cow's milk).
Kefir is a wonderful addition to smoothies!
Shelf life is 12 months from the manufactured date, or longer when stored in a freezer.
