Is store bought kefir decent? Is it the same has homemade, basically? I've just been buying storebought, it tastes pretty much like buttermilk to me. lifeway brand, I think?
According to what I've read, store-bought kefir doesn't have anywhere near the same range of organisms as home-made. It's still good as a probiotic, but not as good as what is made from real kefir grains (rather than powdered, standardized powder, which I think is how nearly all packaged kefir is made).
Personally I like the store bought kind better. I have kefir grains, but my home made stuff is never the same thick creamy consistency as the store bought stuff. I buy a goat kefir, that is actually made locally in my town, with real grains, so I feel good about the whole thing.
