Probiotics are live bacteria or yeast that line your gut. The presence of these healthy bacteria can inhibit unhealthy bacteria’s efforts to enter the body and take up residence in the gut.
Place coconut water into a 2 litre sterilised glass jar and add starter culture.
Stir the mix using a wooden spoon (never use metal utensils) and leave on the bench-top to ferment for 24-48 hours (24 hours for warm weather and 48 hours for colder weather). Taste the mix and it should be tangy and not sweet.
