Nourish Kefir Starter Cultures are the quick and easy to use, no-fuss way to make your own delicious fresh kefir at home (or even on the move) using your choice of fresh milk, including cow’s milk, lacto-free milk, goat’s milk, soya, coconut water – or even fruit juice!
These starter cultures are a reliable and easy way to make your own kefir without the effort of having to look after live kefir grains. Why? Because each sachet has a measured amount of kefir live bacteria and will produce 1 litre of kefir – within about 24 hours.*
You can make up to 4 subsequent ferments from your first litre that are still strong and provide billions of gut-friendly bacteria. Further batches will become weaker with each fermentation.
Nourish Kefir Starter Cultures are very useful to take when travelling abroad to keep your tummy happy! You do not need any special equipment – just a jug, spoon and some clingfilm to cover.
Each pack contains six x 5g sachets.
Each sachet makes one litre of kefir with your choice of milk.

Please note – our kefir starter cultures are made from grains but will not turn into grains!
At Nourish Kefir we love our kefir grains and totally understand why other people want live grains as they are amazing. However, live kefir grains are like a little pet and need to be looked after (and they can be a bit temperamental and sometimes your kefir will taste too strong or your grains will die if you are not home to look after them!). At our dairy we look after them every day!
Convenience without compromise
But we know that time pressures often mean you need convenience without compromising quality – and that is exactly what our Starter Cultures provide. They are a reliable way to make sure you and your family have lots of kefir, with your choice of milk – as often as you want it! Use them when you want to make some kefir, keep them in the fridge when you don’t!
Please note that some brand of ‘alternative milks’, will not ferment well because they are predominantly water based and the water will not ferment. We’ve tried most and these include Almond milk, rice milk, hazelnut milk. As for Coconut milk – there are quite a few varieties and some will actually work ok – though most will not ferment well – our favourite brand is Grace.
*Fermentation times vary – in hot weather fermentation is faster, typically 18 hours!
