What the What? Water Kefir: Questions Answered 

Our mini review of the Water Kefir People

Have you seen water kefir on store shelves close to the kombucha and thought, what the heck is that? Well, it's in that spot for a reason; water kefir offers similar benefits to aid in your digestion.

It's made with water kefir grains, a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast, also known as a scoby. The grains don't actually contain any grain or gluten; they're more like blobs of gelatin. The Water Kefir People are now producing water kefir in Bend and turning it into six different flavored sodas: hibiscus rose hip, dragon fruit, lavender blueberry, strawberry basil, turmeric ginger and original root beer.

When I first tried water kefir I didn't really like it. I think you need a few sips to get past the fermented funk. Once that flavor passed, I really enjoyed the turmeric ginger and the lavender blueberry.
