Made for batches of milk kefir using Cultures for Health grains and grass fed organic whole milk. All batches went through a maturing process to ensure all the lactose was consumed as I'm lactose intolerant. Last night I made a smoothie using about a half cup of the kefir. Tasted amazing! No adverse effects that night ( if there was in lactose left in it... t'would have been a loooong night =) Had another one this morning.

So looks like I'm well on my way to making my own milk kefir! =^.^=

They just finished a huge study out of England saying that fermented milk products led to a longer life, but non-fermented led to a shorter life. Included for the positives were cheese, kefir, and yogurt. Congratulations on making a good-tasting healthy beverage.
