The main difference is the amount of time that the product can be used to capture it's original fresh taste and texture. When purchasing fresh, you'll want to keep refrigerated and consume the coconut cream within 7 days.

We calculate the distance between your shipping address and our production plant. For shipping locations farther than a 450 mile radius, we disable the UPS Ground option to ensure our customers do not accidentally select it and receive their product past it's prime.

Raw Coconut Cream and Raw Coconut Kefir contain no wheat, rye or barley and our manufacturing facility does not process food containing gluten. How are my products shipped to ensure freshness?

Our products are shipped in a 1.5 inch Styrofoam cooler that is inserted into a corrugated cardboard box. The products are shipped with long lasting ice packs to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.

This does not mean the product is spoiled or harmful in any way. Probiotic Kefir cultures are alive, active and working, producing an effervescent, hydrating beverage. Spoiled Kefir will actually be bitter, but since all of our kefir is shipped within 2-4 days of being made, following the recommended usage guidelines of consuming within six weeks of purchase and within two weeks of opening the container should guarantee that your kefir will be fresh. The vast majority of the time, the product should be similar; however, due to the raw, living nature of Raw Coconut Kefir, things like temperature have an effect on the amount of Probiotic activity. When the bottle is exposed to warmer temps, there is more probiotic activity, and the activity of these cultures speeds up. This higher temperature range generally occurs in the summer.

Probiotics are strains of beneficial bacteria and yeast that help establish healthy intestinal flora in the human body. By permeating the digestive tract, probiotics protect the digestive tract from unhealthy microbes. Probiotics are commonly consumed in fermented foods with specially added live active cultures; such as in yogurt, kefir or dietary supplements.
