A friend of mine that is visiting from Sweden brought some kefir with her and I tried it, having read about it on this site. I would encourage everyone to give it a try. Had I not read it here I would not have known to try it. The taste is and acquired one, but you will get used to it. Being lactose intolerant I expected some bloating and had none....in fact my constipation was eased significantly after consuming it a couple of days. Try it.
