Introducing Milk Kefir Grains to Raw Milk
Our Milk Kefir Grains have been grown in organic pasteurized whole milk, then dehydrated slowly at low temperatures, so that they are stable for shipping.
While milk kefir grains can be used with raw milk, when rehdyrating the grains, it is first important to rehydrate the grains in pasteurized milk. Because raw milk contains its own bacteria, those bacteria can introuce competition for the rehydrating grains and keep them from activating properly.
Once the grains have been fully activated in pasteurized milk, the grains may be slowly transitioned to raw milk.
