History of water kefir

The name « kefir » would be derived from the Turkish word « keif » and would mean « well-being sensation ».


No one knows exactly where kefir appeared for the first time, but it is generally accepted that it would be a secular tradition whose origins are in the North Caucasus.

It is assumed that the appearance of the kefir dates back to the days when the nomads were transporting milk in skin bags; it is in these same bags that had held the grains fermentation, a process that turned the milk into a thick drink and gave it at the same time a better conservation.

For fruit kefir, also known as « water kefir », it also could be a way to keep a fruity drink for a few days, without turning into something toxic.
