- Water kefir grains (also known as Sugar Kefir Grains) allow for the fermentation of sugar water or juice to create a carbonated lacto-fermented beverage. Incredibly easy to brew, the starter culture can create a new batch of kefir every 24-48 hours. This makes a fantastic non-dairy alternative to milk kefir and can be flavored after brewing to make a variety of delicious sodas. If you are looking to replace soda pop, your family will love it! Traditional heirloom-style kefir culture (aka "grains" due to appearance); not a powdered starter culture. With proper care, the culture can be used indefinitely to create delicious probiotic rich kefir. Can be used with sugar water, fruit juice and coconut water. Kefir consists of lactic acid bacteria and yeast existing in a symbiotic relationship. The benefits are similar to those of milk kefir (aka dairy kefir) but the average person will be able to consume larger amounts of it due to its water base.
