October 30, 2023
Let's talk about Raw Kefir - the magical potion that's got everyone buzzing. Don't worry, we promise not to get too "cultured" on you (pun intended). So, buckle up and let's take a deep dive into the world of Kefir!
What is Raw Kefir?
Raw Kefir, folks, is not your regular milk. It's milk that's been through a transformative experience, much like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, only tastier! Made by culturing our whole raw milk with specialized live bacteria colonies, this drink is gut healthy & bio-diverse. It’s basically an all natural & tasty probiotic!
The Taste of Kefir
If you've never tried Kefir before, you're in for a treat. Imagine the tangy goodness of yogurt, with a hint of creaminess, and a sprinkle of effervescence. That's Kefir for you!
A Little History Lesson
Kefir has been around for a while, and by a while, we mean centuries! Originating in the Northern Caucasus Mountains, it was traditionally made in goatskin bags that were hung near a doorway. The bag would be knocked by anyone passing through to help keep the milk and kefir grains well mixed.
Nowadays we skip the goat skin bag and opt for stainless steel and glass in our kefir making process.
Health Benefits: Why Kefir is Good for You
This drink is packed with a host of health benefits. Not only is it full of good bacteria, but unlike its pasteurized cousin, raw Kefir retains all the naturally occurring fat-soluble vitamins - A, D, B, E, and K. It's also extremely rich in healthy bacteria and enzymes that aid in digestion.
How Do You Make Raw Kefir?
We're glad you asked! Making Kefir involves a process of fermenting milk with kefir grains. These aren't your typical grains, but a mix of yeast and lactic acid bacteria. The result is a delicious, effervescent fermented drink.
Fun Fact: Kefir grains can be reused repeatedly. It's a tradition in many families to retain the same kefir grains and hand them down through generations. Moreover, each batch of kefir boasts its own distinct blend of bacteria and a unique taste profile.
So there you have it, folks! All the lowdown on Raw Kefir. We hope you're as excited about this magic potion as we are. Remember, a glass of Kefir a day keeps the doctor away. Or was it apples? Well, why not have both?
Stay healthy, stay happy!
