About Milk Kefir Powder:

Make kefir at home with this powdered starter culture. With no grains to maintain, this culture is easy to use to make homemade kefir at a much lower cost than buying kefir at the store, and it's delicious! Drink plain, add flavoring, or use kefir in many different recipes.


Why Culture your own Milk Kefir?

  • Optimal Health via Probiotic Strains: Homemade cultured milk kefir will contain more probiotic strains than conventional milk kefir. Are you searching for health? A healthy gut belongs to a healthy person . . . so get that gut healthy! 

  • Premium Product: By choosing your own ingredients, you can make a product that not only is not available on the shelf, but is higher quality ingredients, e.g. ( raw, organic, whole milk, goat or cow, coconut milk or coconut water, etc). You can make a milk kefir that is many notches above what can be purchased!

  • Save $$$: Making your own milk kefir costs significantly less than commercial milk kefir and you have complete control over the ingredients you use. You save lots of $$$!



Your Milk Kefir Powder: What's in the Box?

  •  Each box contains 4 packets of starter culture.  

    • (Note: the milk kefir powder is different than the milk kefir grains. . .The milk kefir powder is low-cost and great for travelling; the milk kefir grains are a one-time purchase with an indefinite use. Both make great additions to your life rhythm!)
