Fizzy, gut-healthy Water Kefir awaits! Begin your brew.
We love these grains from Cultures for Health. The brewing process makes a great science project for kids, and a lot of fun flavor experimentation for the whole family! There are so many different combinations of herbs and fruit juices to make your Water Kefir a fun and soda-like treat.
Water Kefir Grains are live probiotics in the form of soft, jelly-like ‘grains’ from a cactus plant. When healthy and fed, these grains will continue to grow and multiply and produce an endless supply of water kefir.
Use Water Kefir Grains to make naturally gut-healthy, bubbly water kefir at home! It’s as easy as mixing sugar into water, and the Water Kefir Grains will do the rest. The grains will metabolize the sugar during the fermentation process and the final kefir water will be very low in sugar.
Ingredients: Organic sugar, live active cultures
How to store: Store the starter culture in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to activate it. Use the starter culture by the date on the bag.

Cultures for Health was founded upon the pursuit of sustainable living and a deeper understanding of traditionally prepared foods that are extremely nourishing. In seeking to achieve a better understanding of the connections between how food is produced and prepared and the benefits it provides, their passion for cultured and fermented foods was born. Cultures for Health believes everyone’s life can be improved by adding more homemade probiotics from cultured and fermented foods to their diet. There’s nothing quite like fresh-baked sourdough or bubbly kombucha made entirely from scratch. The Urban Farm Collection family is full of born-again believers in the value and importance of fermented foods. We hope you enjoy Cultures for Health’s offerings that we are so happy to stock and stand behind!
