Fermentation is a natural, metabolic process that is older than fire. A starter culture, usually yeast and/or bacteria, transforms the chemical makeup of raw materials, like sugars or starches, increasing the healthy bacteria and providing organic acids along the way.
Fermented beverages and foods have been shown to have antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, improve digestion, help control serum cholesterol levels and stimulate probiotic functions in the body. Plus, the yeast is refreshingly delicious – no acquired taste required.
There are some similarities. Both are fermented beverages using a SCOBY, but Dr. Kefir’s is not Kombucha. The Kombucha SCOBY looks something like a light, portabello mushroom, while our cultures look like rounded, translucent crystals. Our cultures produce five times the amount of probiotic bacteria and a different ratio of organic acids. That is why Dr. Kefir’s doesn’t taste vinegary.
Yes, Dr. Kefir’s Sparkling Probiotic Beverages are all nondairy. Fermentation requires a fermenting culture and a sugar to feed the culture. The kefir most people are familiar with uses a culture that consumes lactose, a sugar found in milk and other dairy products. Dr. Kefir's uses a specially grown culture that can consume nondairy sugars, such as the fair trade, organic cane sugar we use in our products.
