Kefir is a probiotic-rich fermented dairy item originating from the north Caucasus. Its consistency is like that of a thin yogurt, its taste is tart and it contains very little lactose due to its fermentation process.
Kefir is in the Inception stage – it’s most often found at retail but in restaurants its presence is strongest on fine dining menus.
