Are Kefirko grains organic?
All of our kefir grains are organic - in fact they are alive! They are actually complex microorganisms and grow and multiply when fed (with milk or sugar and water). Because of this, buying your kefir grains from us means you can keep making more of your own kefir whenever you like – no more expensive store bought kefir!
Is second fermentation necessary?
Second fermentation gives your kefir an extra dose of live microorganisms. This is also the time when you can add some extra ingredients / flavouring and make your kefir fizzier. Second fermentation is not obligatory - you will still benefit from freshly made kefir.
What do I need to make kefir at home?
Making kefir at home is easy with the right tools. The Kefirko complete starter kit with milk grains will give you all that you need to get going. Live cultures are very sensitive to the different substances that can transfer from materials and affect the quality of kefir or even damage the cultures. It is not recommended to use any metal or plastic in long contact with the kefir because it can expose it to BPA and other toxins from plastic. All plastic material used in Kefirko Kefir Makers are certified BPA free and food safe materials.
