Our genuine milk kefir grains are mesophilic symbiotic cultures of beneficial yeast and lactic acid bacteria. These are not to be confused with cereal grains, but rather they simply look like a grainy texture.
Milk kefir grains are used to ferment dairy drinks similar to drinking yogurt. Milk kefir is loaded with beneficial probiotic bacteria, more so than yogurt.
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.
Because Symbiota chooses only the best whole milk to grow our kefir grains in, our grains are alive, healthy and very active.
A portion of active milk kefir grains cultures 1-2 cups of milk within 12-24hrs. Thereafter 1+ litres can be cultured within a few days.
Here at Symbiota we pride ourselves on customer care and provide ongoing support so that everyone can enjoy their fermenting journey feeling supported and confident.
Please note: Our active grains are couriered out on Mondays and Tuesdays so to prevent them from being held up in the postal system over the week end.
I make my own raw milk kefir with these grains and they are perfect in taste and texture when u make it properly (For me, high grain ratio to milk is preferred). I ordered some other kefir grains as well and they tasted horrible! They came in a clear watery liquid while symbiota kefir comes in milk. Always get kefir delivered in milk, never wash the grains with water, its stupid, only use milk!
