<p>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).</p>

<p>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. </p>
