  • Hi I’ve been reading about the benefits of kefir on the gut and Ibs – see Michael Moseley’s “trust me I’m a doctor” Jan 2017
    I’d like to buy the grains and start to make it. Can anyway recommend a place I can buy them from in the UK? Thanks πŸ˜€

    Look on-line, there are several UK companies.

    I’ve bought them from ebay several times with no problems

    Thanks. Any specific suppliers?

    I bought mine from here:

    There was a bit of a delay – there had been a rush on since the programme aired!

    I drink both Milk Kefir and Kombucha every day. It really has changed my IBS. I did a fair bit of research and found these guys. They are really helpful and sell all kinds of probiotic cultures:

    I found out these guys through my friend, bought their Kefir and absolutely loved it. Their cultures are really mild and they turn into a nice creamy Kefir. Bulgarian yoghurt is well known for its superb taste and health benefits.

    Hereigo, there are sellers on that carry them. I recommended one a few months ago to @penguin in the UK and he had good success with them. But I don’t recall which seller it was and without the Search feature working here right now I can’t find it. Perhaps he’ll see this post and can check his amazon history for the seller.

    I purchased mine from Amazon in the US a few years ago and am still using their offspring. 😁

    Hi there, I’m new and this is my 1st post (just about to start 5:2) but I saw your request for kefir info. … You don’t need to buy kefir grains, they are free! (BTW I’m writing from/speaking of the UK.) And they really are wonderful for your health in many ways, I have the milk kefir. This is a quick reply but there is an online group which you could join to obtain them. I don’t want to mention in here in case it’s not allowed, but it is a non-profit group, on Facebook. If allowed I will happily post the link …? xx

    Hi @tinker8ell,
    As far as I know its fine to post a link for info about something, as long as its not spam and some of those things that ask for your email/to subscribe etc.
    If its just info and its free its fine.
    I’d be interested to know more about it πŸ™‚

    Hi ShinyThing,
    Thank you for your nice comments πŸ™‚ Here are a couple of really good links with lots of knowledge and help:

    One is for milk kefir, and the other is for fermenting in general, including kefir. The fermenting one has a pinned post with a list that you can join to request free grains etc (you usually just pay postage, or collect in person).

    You can also offer your excess grains here for free of you wish. They multiply! There is no need to buy grains, they are all around you bring out for new homes!

    I hope that this is helpful. Good luck with your Fast Diet!! Hugs, Tink xx

    Thank you @tinker8ell, I’m new to fermenting and always on a lookout for more knowledge and help πŸ™‚
