What is kefir?
Kefir is drinkable cultured milk, like a thick smoothie. Often referred to as “drinkable yogurt”, many people enjoy kefir for its health benefits and flavor: it is an easily digestible source of natural protein, calcium, and beneficial probiotics. Its creamy texture makes it a versatile base for breakfast smoothies, on-the-go meals, or even as a substitute for buttermilk in baking. Our kefir is lactose free, which makes it ideal for people looking for the nutritional benefits of kefir regardless of if they are lactose intolerant or not.
The main difference between yogurt and kefir is in its flavor and texture: yogurt has a thicker texture, like a delicate custard, while kefir’s thinner consistency makes it drinkable. Our kefir and yogurt also differ in flavor and in their milk components – milk solids for example – and other ingredients. Our yogurt is slightly higher in milk solids and we add a little bit of pectin, which is derived from citrus fruits.
