Kefir Starter Culture

Whip up your own kefir at home with our simple powdered, non-GMO starter culture

The word 'kefir' is derived from the Turkish language and means "long life" or "good life."* Kefir itself is a thick, effervescent drink with a tangy flavor, similar to a drinking-style yogurt.

Now you can make your own nutritious kefir at home with our powdered Kefir Starter Culture from Cultures for Heath. With no grains to maintain, this culture is easy to use and costs much less than buying kefir in the super market.



Proprietary blend of selected strains of lactococci, lactobacilli, Leuconostoc, and Saccharomyces fragilis bacteria.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, this culture can be stored in the freezer. It should last for about 12 months.

When re-culturing using kefir from a previous batch, there is no need to heat the milk. Make sure the culturing temperature is in range, 72-74ºF, and the milk will warm up and begin to culture on its own.

Our kefir starter culture can be used with coconut milk. You should have a distinctive sour smell/taste, even though it likely will not thicken as a product made with dairy milk. Nut milks yield inconsistent results, possibly due to the additives, so you may have better results with homemade milks.
