Milk kefir is a fermented dairy product made from any type of milk — goat, cow, coconut, rice, soy, sheep - similar in many ways to yogurt and buttermilk. It is also a probiotic beverage made with either milk kefir grains or a powdered kefir starter culture. Both are high in nutrients and probiotics and beneficial for digestion and gut health, improves immunity, among many other benefits.
