Water kefir grains are a symbiotic relationship between yeast and bacteria. They are plump, translucent grain-textured bacterial cultures that convert sugar into healthy probiotics, enzymes and electrolytes. They emit CO2 which adds pleasant carbonation to the drink they make, called water kefir. Water kefir can help boost the immune system, enhance gut health and calm bloating.   

Package contains 1/4 cup LIVE water kefir grains.

Grains are shipped in dormancy. Refrigerate grains upon receiving your delivery, as the cultures are live and appreciate a cool environment.

    Thank you, Happy Gut! I’ve been happily making kefir water since my grains arrived a few weeks ago just days after ordering online.
    Your directions are excellent, and videos even more awesome and helpful. Full disclosure, I also viewed veganlovie and culturesforhealth videos as well for guidance. Instructions were pretty similar.
    As a newbie to kefir water-making, here’s what I found:
    Minerals are key. Using boiled tap water, I added a pinch of black salt (kala nemak) and it worked great. My 1st ferment smells yeasty at 48 hrs. AND I get real fizz (and plenty of pop!) after 3 day in-bottle 2nd ferment. (Without the black salt, my first couple batches were tasty but flat.)
    Thank you for a terrific product, well-supported with text instructions and how-to video guidance.
    Thanks again!

    I have been a Happy Gut consumer for a couple of years. I love it! I am a type 1 diabetic and was skeptical at first as I didn’t know if it would raise my blood sugar. I did a test and voila… It did not!! I make sure that I keep my water kefir on the counter and the fermentation eats up the sugar. I consume my water kefir within 3 days and start another. It gives me so much energy and my husband loves it! My granddaughters, Sadie and Cora love the “pop” and all the different flavors. I make lemonade, pineapple, grapefruit/blueberry. I have been fermenting since I was young: sauerkraut, cucumbers, mushrooms and more. Water kefir is the special sweet that I love so much.

    I purchased the product after watching the DD episode. With little expectation to be honest. I was going to gift it to someone but the package said the grains had to be used fairly quickly (within two weeks) so I decided to try it myself.
    Now, a month in, I forgot to start my current batch fermentation and have run out and in panic mode! I LOVE this stuff! I can’t keep up with how much is consumed in this house. and will have to double my recipe.
    It’s delicious. So far I’ve made mango orange (candied mango and orange juice) I’m SO glad I didn’t gift this away and kept it for myself.
    I HIGHLY recommend this. It’s not messy, it’s super easy (I had doubts, but look at me!) and the taste is as good or better than store bought fermented drinks. And I know what’s in it!
    Run, don’t walk lol. If I can do it, you can. This review is from some random person who impulse purchased after watching a show. And SO glad I did! My gut is happy, SUPER happy.

    I received the new grains you sent and they are fermenting just fine. I love the coconut water kefir because there is no added sugar. I cannot have sugar, daily, or gluten, so must be selective. The coconut kefir is marvelous! Thank you so much for your continued positive attitude and energy.

    I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate your guidance. Happy Gut is hands down the best when it comes to an outstanding customer service. I am going to try your tips and looking forward to trying various recipes that you have shared.

    These happy little grains worked well right away. It was my first time fermenting kefir, and by my second batch it was nice and bubbly. I’m a few weeks in and they seem foolproof so far!

    My favourite second ferment recipe is 1/2 cup chopped frozen peaches and a few slices of fresh ginger. But I use cheap apple juice when I’m in a hurry and it works great too! I never liked kombucha, so I’m happy to have this as an alternative.
