What is kefir?
Kefir is a fermented drink made from milk. It is usually fermented on the basis of cow's or goat's milk with the help of a milk kefir nodule or kefir fungus. This creates a probiotic delicious alternative to yogurt. The fermentation of kefir usually takes no longer than 24 hours. After fermentation, the kefir nodules are removed and reused as desired.
What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a fermented refreshing tea drink. With the help of a Kombucha culture different sweetened tea sorts are fermented e.g. green tea or black tea. The Kombucha fungus or scoby is a community of various microorganisms, bacteria and yeasts that metabolize tea and sugar into a delicious drink during fermentation. In the process, various nutrients and enzymes are produced, which give Kombucha its special positive effects.
