As mentioned earlier, fermentation is the most effective way of extraction, water kefir is an excellent way to capture specific properties from various ingredients. Once water kefir completes its primary fermentation (approx. 2 to 3 days) the water kefir grains (culture) can be removed and placed into a new container with sugar water and a dash of Himalaya salt. Various other ingredients can be added to the ready fermented water kefir to initiate a secondary fermentation phase were the properties from added ingredients are pre-digested by the microbes and therefore becomes readily available for our digestive systems to absorb these properties optimally. By adding raw healthy ingredients, it becomes and easy way to make up your own customised health drinks.

Water kefir should be enjoyed responsibly by consuming 125 to 150 ml on a daily base. The idea of these fermented drinks is to support our gut flora and not to dominate it.

Glass bottles may be added R20/R28 refundable (dependant on size).
