With proper care, the culture can be used indefinitely to create delicious probiotic-rich kefir. Cultures on the counter at 67-80ŒÁF, no heating appliance required.

There are numerous uses for kefir including making a type of cream cheese, adding to smoothies, and drinking alone. Kefir can also be flavored after it has cultured and the kefir grains have been removed.
