Cultured fermented foods and drinks, such as raw kefir or kombucha tea, aid the body and digestive system by providing a rich array of pro-biotic and pre-biotics that assist the body in breaking down hard to digest foods and also providing the body with fresh, active intestinal flora and beneficial bacteria. Pro-biotics increase natural intestinal flora and may help prevent the development of pathogenic germs, including salmonella, E. coli, Candida, and other well-known 'bugs'.

Kefir grains, JUN, ginger brew, and other fermented cultured foods may aid in the digestion, by changing or removing chemicals or compounds found in soy or milk products that some research has shown could be harmful to the body. Certain individuals who have intolerance for dairy products, such as lactose intolerance seen with milk products, a good daily dose of pro-biotics may assist or totally remove the dis-ease. Many people, who cannot use dairy products, find that they can use kefired milk products, made from milk kefir grains, as the active bacteria and yeast break down the heavy proteins and lactose found in different foods.

Most people know of yogurt, real raw cheese, buttermilk, and sourdough bread – all cultured food products. However, in the US, most know little about cultured dairy drinks such as milk kefir (Balkans), Amazake a rice drink from Japan, Fil Mjölk (Sweden), or Fresh Viili (Finland). All these cultures are living foods used for years throughout the world to ferment and preserve food stores. Many of these wonderful cultured foods are used in place of milk in recipes, aids in the preservation other types of food, or to
make many types of fresh soft cheeses easily from your kitchen.

If dairy is not your thing, we have cultures that work for the vegan lifestyle, too! Kombucha and JUN provide a nice refreshing fermented beverage. Water kefir grains are a nice source for a natural lemonade soda or make traditional ginger brew/beer made right at home! What ever your needs, we can get you started on the path of traditional cultured fermented foods and health.

Our Cultures Food Source - All our dairy cultures grown with
certified organic whole milk.

All our other culture starters are maintained on certified organic ingredients or natural sources. Spores are not certified organic, as spores are hard to certify.

* Replacement guarantee good within the USA only, must contact within days 10 days of delivery. * Because of the small risk of pathogen growth in home fermented cultures, it is NOT recommended for those with weakened immune systems, e.g. pregnant women, the elderly, the very young and the chronically ill. Please consult your healthcare professional before using pro-biotics in your diet.
