What is water Kefir

Agua de Madre is the original cultured beverage; packed with billions of live cultures.  The drink is thirst quenching, seriously tasty and vegan.

 

SO WHAT IS WATER KEFIR? 

Water kefir is a live naturally sparkling drink, fermented with a water kefir mother culture, a naturally occurring symbiotic culture of bacterias and yeasts (SCOBY).  It is organic, vegan and obviously packed with live cultures, which ensures it has a multitude of health benefits.

Our water kefir is made from the elemental Tibicos Mother Culture discovered two thousand years ago on the pads of the Mexican Opuntia cactus. We feed it, nurture it and use it to ferment our delicious probiotic drink.

Through the process of fermentation, the sugar levels decrease and the gut-friendly flora increases, as the drink becomes lightly effervescent. 

Due to the multitude of bacteria (live cultures) found in water kefir it contributes to maintaining good gut health, which has a positive impact on our physical and mental wellbeing, ensuring a balanced ecosystem for our bodies and minds.

The more diverse strains of bacteria found in your micro biome, the healthier you are.  

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KOMBUCHA AND WATER KEFIR?

Water kefir is made with a different SCOBY to Kombucha and has different bacteria and yeasts.   As the bacteria is predominantly lactobacillus  which our guts naturally have, it is therefore easier for the gut to absorb the goodness from water kefir.  Kombucha is predominantly acetic acid whereas as Water Kefir has a much gentler,  softer mouth feel. Water kefir has 3 times the average amount of live cultures as Kombucha. It has no caffeine unlike Kombucha that is fermented with tea.  Our water kefir is also vegan and organic.
