Kefir is a probiotic, a “chain” of bacteria, yeasts, proteins and complex sugars (or polysaccharides), beneficial to health and which has a very cauliflower-like appearance, and may be the size of a pea or walnut. It is also called Yogurt Flower, Tibetan Mushrooms, Yogurt Mushrooms and Yogurt Fungus.
Rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals, it has antifungal and antibiotic properties, among others, and can be an aid in preventing various health problems: Balance of intestinal flora and contributes to the absorption of nutrients; Facilitates digestion; Decreases cholesterol; Improves bone density and fights osteoporosis; It has a calming effect on the nervous system (being beneficial for those suffering from depression or sleep disorders, for example); Increases resistance to infections in healthy people; Prevents gallbladder, liver or kidney problems; It can be used as a treatment for dermatological problems such as acne, eczema, psoriasis or allergies, for example; Synthesizes B complex vitamins; It can be indicated for people with lactose intolerance, since their bacteria and yeasts consume most of the lactose during the fermentation process.
Milk kefir can be grown / fermented in animal milk, such as cow’s milk consumed by the vast majority of people, which has more lactose than the rest, or vegetable like coconut milk, soy, oats or rice, for example.
The appearance of the final result (cultivated / fermented) is similar to that of curdled milk and the taste resembles a yogurt, only a little more acid and with a much higher nutritional and therapeutic value.
