Kefir is a primary product we make out of our camel milk. It is a fermented milk product of undetermined origin, the history of which goes back many, many years. You can buy what is labeled as Kefir in health food stores, but that is not real Kefir. You can also buy Kefir starter cultures to inoculate your milk, but that is not real Kefir either. These products are expensive, do not last, and have only a handful of types of Microflora in them. True Kefir has 50+ documented different types Micro flora for digestive tract health.
If you want to see some specifics on that, check out Dominicâ€™s website at http://users.chariot.net.au/~dna/kefirpage.html#microflora.
Tangy, yet sweet and fizzy, a bit like old fashioned buttermilk that you cannot buy anymore. Our familyâ€™s experience is that the desire for its taste grows on you. A really delicious way to try it is to use it to make a fruit smoothie! You can find many recipes for kefir products on the Internet. Just note, however, that when you cook with it you will kill some of the beneficial bacteria.
