The Wondrous Kefir.
Kefir (pronounced "kuh-FEAR") is a type of fermented milk product similar to yogurt. Originating from the Caucasus Mountains, Kefir confers a wide range of health benefits which include improving the digestive system and strengthening immunity.
Kefir is unique as it is a complex mixture of lactic acid bacteria and yeast cohabitating in the same environment in a symbiotic relationship. The yeast present may supply vitamins, amino acids and other nutrients while eliminating metabolic waste products hence allowing the lactic acid bacteria to flourish.
The resultant fermented product is therefore rich in nutrition and flavour.
