Making water kefir at home doesn't have to be difficult - in fact, water kefir is one of the easiest beverages to make if you are just getting started culturing. You can learn to make homemade water kefir from our Cultures for Health team and other Real Food pros.
Water Kefir is a probiotic beverage made with water kefir grains or a powdered kefir starter culture. Water kefir grains can be used to culture sugar water, juice, or coconut water. A powdered kefir starter culture may also be used to culture coconut water or fruit juice.
Water kefir grains consist of bacteria and yeast existing in a symbiotic relationship. The term kefir grains describes the look of the culture only. Water kefir grains contain no actual "grains" such as wheat or rye.
