How is AQUA KEFIR made?
AQUA KEFIR is a delicately fermented, sparkling probiotic drink crafted with non-dairy kefir crystals.
• We first cultivate our water kefir crystals by gently soaking them for a few hours in a sweetened water bath consisting of purified water, organic cane sugar, and organic fruits & fruit peels.
• We then remove the fruit & fruit skins, allowing our water kefir crystals to continue fermenting in just the sweetened water.
• Several days later, the water is transformed into a lightly sparkling beverage.
What kind of kefir cultures are used to make AQUA KEFIR?
