Hello, and welcome to our site! We love kefir, and if you're reading this, chances are you do too (or at least you're curious!). Please take a look around the site to learn more. Use the left hand navigation to find specific topics, ranging from introductory "what is it" and "how do I make it" to more advanced "what are some recipes" and "what does academic research say about it." You may have seen sites that make bold claims about kefir being a cure-all for the world's maladies—we aim to bring that into perspective by using evidence-based research and facts in all of our articles.
