Milk Kefir by Bärbucha Fermenterei

Aktualisiert: 24. Apr.


Out of all the fermented foods, Milk Kefir stands up well above the crowd.

And for a good reason - it is very healthy.


But not the commercial one, though. That one has been modified so it can sit on a shelf for a while.

We are talking about the home-made one. And this home-made Milk Kefir is quite different.

And this is exactly the one that we make, we drink and we sell in our Café.

In order to make it, one needs to use good Milk Kefir cultures.

And those we have and we use them everyday.

They are also available for pick up in our Kombucha Café or they can be ordered through our online store - Milk Kefir Cultures

So what is Milk Kefir?

Kefir "is a fermented milk drink that originated in the Caucasus Mountains which is traditionally made with kefir "grains, a yeast/bacterial fermentation starter." (Wikipedia)

So now that we have a definition, lets go to check of the benefits.


We will use some visual aids as they present things in a more interesting way.


One of our favorite, alternative doctors, we writes this:

And also this:

Plus this:

Another source quotes these benefits:

Milk Kefir is not only healthy but it is also delicious. The fermentation process practically eliminates milk's lactose and it makes it more digestible for people, even for those who have problems dealing with this "milk's sugar".

And on a personal note. Since I started drinking Milk Kefir regularly, my Spring allergies disappeared last year. And I had to deal with them every single year since 1995.

Now that is something, especially that I have been drinking Kombucha and eating other fermented foods for years, and those two did not seem to make a difference.

Making Milk Kefir is very easy.

All you need is milk, the best quality you can find, raw milk is optimal if you can find it, and the Kefir grains.

We use local BIO (Organic) milk that has not been homogenized.

It comes from pasture raised cows and it makes great Kefir.

The process only takes about 24 hrs and when the Kefir is done it looks like this:

And when the Kefir grains are strained, you can see the wonderful texture and creaminess:

We make it fresh every day.

If you don't feel like making your own Milk Kefir (and it is a daily commitment), you can always stop by at our Café Bärbucha and pick up a jar or two:

We enjoy it just the way it is.

Out of Milk, Kefir we also make Kefir Cheese, which is also available daily.
