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 fizzy carbonation to the drink they make, called water kefir. Water kefir can help boost the immune system, enhance gut health and calm bloating.   


Water kefir grains are a living bacterial culture that can be used time and time again. When cared for and used properly, Happy Gut Water Kefir grains will keep producing delicious water kefir for you and your whole family to enjoy.

  1. SpaceRace

    The kit was as described, and the instructions were great. Excited to try some of the other recipes now…

  2. Simone Babineau

    Everything we needed to get started was in the Kit. We have even gotten a little creative in our making new flavours. The entire family has made it our go to drink. I love that it is almost like champagne, when we put a little pineapple juice in the mix. Our batch has doubled and we now have a good rotation working, so there is always some ready to enjoy. We really love this product. We were looking for exactly it, and did not want to do pills to improve our gut bacteria. Saw you on Dragons den and purchased right way. Love that you are Canadian! Keep up the great work. We enjoy the newsletters of recipes and reminders and how to’s. We tap our own trees for maple syrup and look forward to adding it to our future batches as well.
    Thanks from Muskoka!!!

    I appreciate the level of support and information made available through your website and email. Through your support and subtle tweaks I’ve had more success with brewing water kefir. Being diabetic I’m pleased with the happy gut product unlike fermented milk based products which contain a tremendous amount of sugar.

  4. Deborah Bowman

    I was given a home brew kit for Christmas last year. I have been brewing ever since and have had nothing but success! I have experimented with all kinds of flavours in the 9 brews I’ve made including fresh and candied ginger, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry and orange. I love having my water kefir in the morning before I start my day. It tastes great and I feel like I’m doing something wonderful for my health. I’m going to be turning 60 this year (gasp!) and being healthy and taking steps to make sure I can protect myself as I get older and age in a positive way is very important to me. If you follow the simple instructions you can’t go wrong! This is a fantastic Canadian product, made with integrity and love. HappyGut please keep up the great work and positive energy! We need it now more than ever!

  5. Margaret McManus

    excellent product and easy to use, and it makes a delicious refreshing drink. Really happy i bought this kit, so many possibilities, bonus that it provides probiotics. I avoid dairy so this is perfect.

  6. Marie-Josee

    I just bought the grains because I’m used to ferment and had all the equipment. I was really impressed with the super quick delivery! I received them the next day I ordered them and I could start fermenting straight away! Thank you!

  7. Kami Williamson

    I received my order quickly and have been really pleased with the products I’m making. Water kefir has a gentle flavour compared to kombucha and everyone in my family is loving it. I did have a few questions about brewing that were quickly answered. I love that there are recipes and tips coming to my inbox regularly. Overall a great company with excellent customer service. I highly reccomend!

  8. Tracey

    Great product. I have had great success cause it is so easy! Not time consuming at all. Kids and hubby love the drinks. Happy that it is a Canadian supplier! ?What Canada makes, makes Canada!?

  9. Beverly

    Terrific product with excellent service and support! My grains-only order arrived two days after ordering and I started brewing the end of that week. Awesome turnaround! Directions are clear and instructional videos super helpful. Key tips: no metal, and mineralize tap water to achieve fizz of 2nd in-bottle ferment. (A pinch of black salt worked for me, available in health food stores or south-asian groceries.) Delicious and refreshing results. Shared with foodie friends who said they’d order at a restaurant if available. It’s that good!

  10. Maria

    my 2 sister n laws and my sister have purchased your kits since I introduced your kefir to them! I just want to say thanks for your exceptional costumer service and believing in your customers. I was very intimidated at first and now kefir is part of my family’s healthy living! Im so proud to be using it!
    You are truly making a difference!
    Thank you and cheers from my house to yours!

  11. Jenn

    This starter kit is totally fail proof and worth it (plus recipes on their website and everything you need to know.) I earned my money back on the starter kit in just a few days with how quickly my grains reproduced and was able to start making double and triple batches, saving me TONS if I had been buying the equivalent pre-made kefir from the store!! I would highly recommend giving it a try if you’re looking for healthy ways to enjoy a drink with less sugars, amazing flavours and healthy probiotics!

  12. tp
