The culture is called Kefir Grains but isn’t really a grain that grows in the field like whole wheat grains or legumes but rather jelly beadlike structures that contains good bacteria and yeast. Milk kefir grains eat the milk sugars, better known as Lactose, in milk and converts regular milk into a probiotic rich super food called Milk Kefir! Kefir is pronounced as KE•fur or KHE•feer, derived from the Turkish word “keif” that means “feel good”.  Kefir’s origins trace back to the Caucasus Mountains in Russia more than 2 000 years ago.
