Kefir Starter Culture for home made by GENESIS LABORATORIES LLC - up to 50 liters
The Kefir is an ancient traditional Kavkaz drink, well known for its healing effect. The secret in Kefir making is the starter culture, which are the kefir grains. This is a unique symbiotic combination of lactic acid microorganism, acetic acid bacteria and special kefir yeast. The metabolic product of their mutual fermentative activity is the essential component of the probiotic qualities of this drink. The Kefir microflora lives and multiplies in the intestinal tract, while working against unwanted bacteria, improving the overall bacterial environment, detoxifying the body and boosting the immune system.
The quality of the final product depends on the fresh milk used as a source. If the results are not satisfactory – use another brand of milk.
The final product could be used as a starter culture for multiple times. Add 1 or 2 table spoons in 1 Liter boiled and cooled down milk, as described on the package. The fermentation time in this case is 2 to 3 hours shorter.
The Kefir also has other health benefits. To relieve sunburn skin, just brush a few times with miraculous product. Baths with kefir also reduce the effects of skin irritation. For this purpose, add 3 liters of kefir to the water in the bathtub and soak in it for 20 minutes.
