What is water kefir? Known by many, MANY names (due to the many different cultures who have been using it for centuries), water kefir, tibicos, tibi, Japanese water crystals, Africian bees, Balm of Gilead, the list goes on and on – but what IS it?
In a nutshell, it’s a drink made by fermenting yeast and bacteria, which are called “grains.” They are mixed with water, sugar and an acidic bit of fruit and left to do their thing. Sounds delicious, mmmmm. /end sarcasm.But no, really – the result is a “fizzy-lifting drink,” carbonated like soda but without the processed sugar, artificial flavors and colors AND with an extra added bonus – a ton of natural probiotics. Sort of like kombucha. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan and low cal, plus you can flavor it too.
