What is it made of?
Water kefir is made from a culture of various strains of healthy bacteria and yeast, held together in a polysaccharide matrix created by the bacteria. The symbiotic relationship of the microbes produces a stable growing culture. The microbes feed on sugar and produce lactic acid, alcohol (ethanol), and carbon dioxide yielding a fermented carbonated beverage. The alcohol content is usually very minimal, less than 1%. Water Kefir is also known as Japanese Water Crystals, Tibicos, Tibi or Kefir Grains.
