Water Kefir Grains


Water Kefir Grains are live probiotics in the form of soft, jelly-like ‘grains’ from a cactus plant. When healthy and fed, these grains will continue to grow and multiply. 

Use Water Kefir Grains to make naturally gut-healthy, bubbly drinks at home! It’s as easy as mixing sugar into water - our Water Kefir Grains will do the rest. 

Don’t worry, the sugar isn’t for you. The grains will metabolize the sugar during the fermentation process and the final product will be very low in sugar.

Having fun with a different kind of kefir!

I was afraid of water kefir - the start-up, the amount of sugar and the use (so used to my creamy dairy kefir). But after another customer’s recommendation for Culture’s for Health’s grains and the support and education provided by the website I gave it a go. At the start of the warmer season I’ve already been enjoying this probiotic hydrating refresher. I’m looking forward to trying out different concoctions recommended by Cultures for Health, and coming up with my own.


I've used the product for many years, and I still like it. Every few years, I need a fresh supply, and these are doing their magic as anticipated.

Left On My Own

When my Kefir grains arrived I followed the rehydrating instructions to the letter, but I had horrible results. The grains literally disinigrated within a couple of days. I immediately reached out for help to your company to correct what was going wrong and I never received any type of reply back and I tried several times to contact someone. Needless to say, the entire process was a complete failure and I was left on my own to try to figure out what was going on. I am not happy at all with my experience with your company. You won't be hearing from me again.

Totally useless

Useless product and useless customer service.

Water Kefir Grains

Purchased milk kefir grains from elsewhere before I found this company. Could not continue to use because of dairy allergies. Loved the fresh effervescence and taste. I was disappointed that I had to stop that. Then I found out about the water kefir and purchased here. Wasn’t sure about water kefir. Turned out to be a great purchase and great taste. The grains work very well after my learning period. Still perfecting, and getting better each time.
Would purchase again and/or refer.
