Does Greek yogurt bore you? Then it’s time to experiment with Kefir. The superfood (or super drink) has a consistency that is in between milk and yogurt. It is also a fantastic provider of calcium, just like its relatives from the dairy aisle. Kefir, however, offers even more advantages. It’s a fermented beverage, so it contains lots of probiotics that are excellent for your digestive system.
Kefir has a definite expiry date. This date is a guideline for consumers to determine if it’s safe to use. If the grains appear white, chunky, and elastic, they should be thrown out. The consistency should also be firm and odorless. If the grains are too thick or runny, throw them out. If it looks watery, it’s probably not good.
A clear sign that your Kefir is going wrong is the presence of mold. The mold may be present in the bottle, or pink or orange spots appear on the surface.
