Palm sugar is a sweetener obtained from concentrated coconut sap and is known to have a low glycaemic index. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of broccoli stem extract and palm sugar concentration on its biochemical and microbiological characteristics. Subsequently, the acceptance of the product by the panelists were evaluated through organoleptic tests. Water kefir with sugar content of 15% had the highest lactic acid, antioxidant activity, lactic acid bacteria, yeast, ethanol content, and water kefir with a concentration of 1:5 and sugar content of 15% found the highest acceptance by the panelists. Water kefir obtained in this study did not have contaminant bacteria. This product also met the codex standard.
