What is Kefir?
Kefir is a type of fermented beverage having similarity with yoghurt drinks. It is prepared by fermentation of dairy milk using a specific starter culture called “starter grains.” This is not a grain of the real sense, but a combination of bacteria, milk proteins and yeasts. The final product has a creamy appearance with a tart flavor. Kefir is considered having a lot of probiotic health benefits even more than common yoghurt. Kefir can also be prepared from some non-dairy alternatives such as coconut water, rice milk, goat milk, and coconut milk. Like yoghurt, kefir is also a fermented milk product and suitable for people with lactose intolerance. This is also ideal to improve your gut health.
This is a kind of starter culture to prepare kefir consisting of yeasts, bacteria and polysaccharides, although their combination may vary depending on culturing environment and origin. This starter culture is used in dairy milk for the fermentative production of kefir. The yeasts and bacteria exist in a symbiotic relationship in the polysaccharide matrix. Both the bacteria and yeasts feed on the milk and coexist. The grains have a gelatinous feel and structure like miniature cauliflower floret. The final taste of the product will depend on the bacteria and yeast present in the starter culture.
This is another type of starter culture used for the fermentative production of water kefir, a well-acclaimed probiotic beverage. The starter culture can be used on raw materials such as coconut water, other fruit juices and sugar water. A powdered form of the same starter culture is also used in fruit juice or coconut water. Similar to milk kefir grains here also bacteria and yeast culture remain in a symbiotic relationship. The name grain came from the similarity in look with other cereal grains such as wheat.
As the name suggests, this type of kefir is prepared using coconut water as the raw material. The water kefir grains are used as starter culture here. Coconut kefir, just like the dairy milk based kefir contains many beneficial bacteria that improve your gut health thereby enhancing the digestive and immune systems.
As a probiotic beverage with high nutritive values, kefir has many benefits. It primarily improves your digestion system and gut health.
Major benefits of kefir include:

Kefir contains a considerable amount of vitamins and minerals such as Magnesium, Phosphorus, Calcium, Riboflavin, vitamin B12 and a decent proportion of vitamin D. It is a good source of protein as well.
Ideal for people having lactose intolerance
Kefir contains lactic acid bacteria which converts the lactose present in dairy products. So people with lactose intolerance can have kefir without any problem.
Helps in the treatment of asthma and allergy
Some scientific studies have suggested that there may be a possibility of kefir being a good candidate to give relief from the symptoms of asthma and allergies by suppressing Inflammatory responses (no studies on human conducted).
High on Probiotics
There are more than 30 beneficial microorganisms present in kefir. It is considered a more potent probiotic compared to other fermented dairy milk products such as yoghurt. It also contains the unique probiotic Lactobacillus kefiri, a highly beneficial bacterium that inhibits different harmful bacterial growth in our gut. Daily consumption of kefir can protect you from E. coli, Helicobacter pylori and Salmonella infections and can provide relief from diarrhea. Kefir has a carbohydrate called kefiran with antibacterial properties.
A source of vitamin K2
Kefir contains vitamin K2 that promotes bone health, thereby lowering the risk of osteoporosis.
Kefir is high in antioxidants, anticarcinogenic agents that inhibit the growth of tumors while stimulating the immune system at the same time. Laboratory studies have shown that kefir can stop the growth of cancerous cells. However, still, no human testing has been conducted on the same.
