Water Kefir

Water kefir grains also known as Tibicos allow for the fermentation of sugar water to create a carbonated lacto-fermented beverage.  It consists of lactic acid bacteria and yeast existing in a symbiotic relationship. Water kefir is one of my favorite probiotic foods. It is very easy to make, takes around 5 minutes every 2 days of my time. It tastes delicious and it is very inexpensive to make as it only requires sugar and water. Water kefir can be fermented with any flavour you like be it strawberry, pineapple, berries, ginger, lemon, herbs etc. I can have as much as I like keeping me hydrated and healthy. As long as I take care of my water kefir grains, they continue to produce a new batch of water kefir every 1-2 days.
