Able – I finally got my kefir starter kit but I noticed on the label it says it contains glucose. Can I go ahead and make it? Hope you’re well.
Hi, Katy. Good to see you again. I’m fine, hope you are as well.
Just like yogurt, kefir needs a certain amount of sugar for the process to complete. The longer you allow it to ferment, the less sugar will remain in the end product. This means that you can allow it to ferment a bit longer than the instructions call for.
