Under the material segment, the milk segment accounted for the largest share in the global kefir market. Kefir is a fermented, cultured milk drink, which is similar to yogurt - but a drink with a sour taste. Kefir is rich in probiotic bacteria and is a good source of calcium. The method of kefir production is one of the main differences between kefir and yogurt. Traditional milk kefir uses kefir grains and whole cow’s milk, goat’s milk, sheep’s milk or coconut milk, as well as from soy and rice milk alternatives. Kefir grains are not grains but are small gelatinous beads that look like grains that contain a variety of bacteria and yeasts. The rich nutritional profile of milk used in the production of kefir has been responsible for the increasing inclination of the consumers towards the milk kefir and is projected to be growing over the coming years


Kefir is defined as a fermented and cultured beverage that tastes just like a yogurt drink but is entirely different as compared to it.
