About kefir

is traditional acid-alcohol fermented milk originated from the Caucasus mountainous region known for the longevity of its people. It is prepared by fermenting cow, goat, or sheep's milk with kefir grains. The word Kefir is said to be originated from the Turkish word ‘keif' implying ‘good feeling' or ‘pleasure'. It is also called as various different names depending on region such as kepi, kippe, kephir, khaphin, kiaphir, keffir, and kefyr.

Kefir grains resemble cauliflowers since a complex of lactic acid bacteria and yeast stick together in a matrix of

polysaccharide kefiran. Many different lactic acid bacteria and yeasts are found in the kefir grains. Kefir is slightly carbonated and acidic fermented milk with kefir grains. The distinctive organoleptic properties of kefir differ from yogurt in that it contains small amount of CO2, alcohol, and health benefit polysaccharide. With the efficacy of kefir reported for its anti-cancer, immune reinforcement, and antibacterial actions, kefir attracts worldwide attention. It has been very popular in Russia, Hungary, and Poland for many years. In Russia, kefir shares more than 80% of the total amount of fermented milk consumed. It is also well known in Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Germany, Greece, Austria, Brazil, and Israel. It is currently available in the United States, primarily as an ethnic drink, and is growing in popularity in Japan. Today, kefir is becoming increasingly popular due to its health benefits.
