Easy kefir

Posted by 5270957003943881811 on Apr 19, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I have used only one sachet of this freeze-dried kefir starter - worked first time and is self-perpetuating. It survived 5 days in the fridge while I was away. So I have the remainder in reserve in case of longer holidays,, or even to give to friends as a trial.

A worthwhile addition to a bigger order as you can keep propagating batches at home, whilst the other sachets are a stable backup.

heat

Hi I just wish to bring to your attention that whenever I received my goods, I noticed that the box and the insulated items inside were quite hot. It is as if the box of items were kept under the sun for many hours. My concern is that the items are sensitive to heat. The quality of the products may had been affected. May I know how this can be prevented?

Kindly Refrain for Buying (if you are shipping it overseas)

I had purchased Kefir Starter and paid for it to be shipped to Bangalore (In India ) . The Courier Company was DHL Express . Apart from Shipping charges & Additional Custom Duty the courier company is charging $8 as additional handling charges (which is not even legal) . The additional handling charges is not mentioned by iHerb Website nor mentioned by DHL while placing the order and is collected during final delivery . So , I ended up paying 4 times the original cost of the product . Extremely dissatisfied with lack of transparency by iHerb & DHL Express.
