Well, I'd never heard of it up until now, but having to take Omeprazole daily, and suffering IBS sometimes, I think I'll give it a go. Breakfast for me at the moment is kiwi, blueberries, banana, Chia seed, and live yogurt. Sometimes with a handful of granola to keep me going longer.
I'm just researching how it's made and used, and trying to find the right grains to start it off. I see what you mean about sourcing grains, there are a lot of companies out there.
My Polish neighbours had an earthenware pot in the kitchen that they allowed milk to ferment in, I wonder if that's a similar thing?
My kefir grains have grown so much that I know have more than I can use.
Would rather pass some on than throw some away if anyone is interested.
Kefir is very versatile - as well as a probiotic drink, I've used it to make a soft cheese and to produce a sourdough starter.
I've seen that Yeo Valley are selling pots of kefir. Might actually get round to trying some now!
Maybe it has bern said, but you can store kefir grains in a pot of clean water in the fridge for a week or so, until you have eaten up the Kefir you have.
I'm not surprised that brewing your own is better health wise but it's that case of trying before committing, as it were. Haven't got round to acquiring any grains to grow so far so figure it's an easy route to at lest try it.
