Milk kefir is a fermented dairy drink similar to drinking yogurt. It is loaded with beneficial probiotic bacteria which contribute to improving your gut health which affects our overall wellbeing.

Although genuine kefir grains have common strains of bacteria, some grains vary slightly from one to the next. Symbiota’s kefir grains originate from multiple sources to maximise the diversity of bacteria, leading to stronger milk kefir grains and yummier, healthier milk kefir. 

Milk kefir is extremely easy to make. Simply add fresh milk to your milk kefir culture, let it sit at room temperature for 12-24 hours and then drain your fermented milk kefir drink while reserving your cultures to repeat the process (your cultures last a lifetime if they are looked after and fed dairy milk- no need to buy more culture!).

Milk kefir can be flavoured with a variety of fruits and herbs to keep you coming back for more. To read more on milk kefir click here

Kefir grains from Symbiota

My order came the next day and kefir grains have tripled in size since! We all love kefir and are very happy with our purchase! Thank you Symbiota!

Good product, good service

Received grains in great condition and very fast. I was able to make yummy kefir immediately, so happy with the purchase.


The amount of kefir sent does not thicken 2 cups of milk and even 1 cup - really having trouble with making a reasonable kefir

Hi Esther, thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are very sorry to hear your kefir is not working as expected. Sometimes after a long journey live grains go through a little phase of 'getting back on their feet. Usually they are back in full swing though after 3-4 brews if they've had a delayed journey with the couriers. Please could you email us on info@symbiota.co.nz and we are happy to discuss and address any issues. Thank you

Kefir kit

I'm really happy with the kit. I've made one batch of kefir and I love it. I love the fizzy taste as it is, but it's nice in a smoothie too. Good service from Amber and good communication.

Thanks Cherry for the lovely feedback, glad you are enjoying your product:)


arrived as expected, kefir is active, keeping up production although may need to rest it soon as more than I can use sometimes. after sales support also helpful
