    Default Yeasts In Kefir Drink Combats Disease Causing Bacteria

    • A substance made by yeast in the probiotic drink kefir inhibits pathogenic bacteria, including Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella enterica.
    • The substance, called tryptophol acetate, works by disrupting communication among the bacteria.
    • The discovery could inspire the development of new ways to tackle antibiotic resistant bacteria.

    People may have been producing and drinking kefir, a fermented milk drink that originated in Tibet and the North Caucasus, for thousands of years.

    I enjoy yogurt regularly, but I cannot tolerate kefir. I do not like fluid milk to begin with, and even though a glass of kefir can be sweetened with a few drops of Stevia, I still find it utterly unappetizing.
    But it's a wholesome, healthful drink and I only wish people would learn how to pronounce it: ki-feer, with a tiny "y" sound before the "i"... kyi-feer.

    From everything I have read, I don't think I would like milk kefir, but water kefir can be quite pleasant. Especially if you do a second ferment with fruit juice. I have no idea how the two compare as to probiotics. I have a long list of probiotics in water kefir, but no info on milk kefir.

    Julie, does water kefir require a mother or a starter of some kind? And if so, is it the sort of thing you order from Amazon or get from a friend? Because I would seriously like to try it.

    I bought grains on eBay, for about $6 - many sellers, varying prices. They look like large, moist sugar grains. Don't ever buy dried grains, the fresh ones come through the post OK. I sent some to several people, so you might have a friend who makes it. Apparently it's OK to give excess grains to dogs.
