Remedy Kombucha v Remedy Sodas - what's the diff?

Remedy’s launched a brand spanking new range of live cultured sodas but what’s the difference between Remedy Kombucha and Remedy Sodas you ask?

It all comes down to ingredients.

But first, let’s start with what Remedy Kombucha and Remedy Sodas have in common!

  • They don’t contain any sugar (naturally!)
  • They’re both made with all natural ingredients
  • They’re both chock full of live cultures and organic acids
  • They’re organic, raw and unpasteurised
  • They’re DAMN TASTY!

What's the diff?

The main difference is in the ingredients used to brew these healthy and tasty, live cultured bevvies. 

Thirst up! Let’s take a look at Remedy Kombucha...

Remedy Kombucha is made with a base of sweet tea to which Remedy’s ‘mother culture’ or SCOBY (symbiotic culture of good bacteria and yeast) is added before being fermented over 30 days. This natural fermentation removes all the sugar leaving behind a delicious, refreshing live cultured bevvie chock full of live cultures, organic acids and tea polyphenols. We then add all-natural ingredients for extra flavour.

What about Remedy Sodas then?

Just like Remedy Kombucha, Remedy Sodas are made with real, top notch, all natural ingredients. But Remedy Sodas do NOT contain tea. Rather, they are made by taking high quality organic juices as the base. We then add our a natural live culture starter which kick starts a fermentation process that sees ALL of the natural sugars converted into healthy organic acids. The result is soda made right! Packed full of flavour and goodness with NO SUGAR, naturally!

Still not sure?

So which drink is right for me?

BOTH! If you’re looking for a tangy, sweet and sour flavour profile and want to get a boost of tea polyphenols, plump for a Remedy Kombucha!

Not ready to jump on the booch train or looking for a healthy, live cultured swap for traditional, sugary soft drinks with old school classic flavours? Reach for the right stuff with Remedy Sodas.

Five Fab Reasons to Feb Fast

Here at Remedy we’re BIG fans of giving booze a break. (Especially after the Christmas/New Years’ crazy!)

Wanna know our top five reasons to dodge the dranks for a month or two? Here they are!

You’ll sleep better

While alcohol may help you nod off, the quality of your sleep will be poorer. Try giving booze the flick and see whether it makes a difference to the quality of your kip!

Better mood

If you feel a bit down in the dumps or sad, alcohol can make you feel worse because it affects your brain chemistry. Alcohol is a depressant which means it upsets and disrupts the balance of our brains. Give Feb Fast a go and keep a mood diary to see if booting the booze makes a difference.

More energy

Alcohol can mess with your immune system making it harder to fight off bugs which is the last thing you need heading into the colder months! Because booze also affects your sleep and mood it can leave you feeling sluggish. Give booze a break and see if you notice a difference in your energy levels.

Better skin

Alcohol is dehydrating so swap out booze for something more healthy, tasty and hydrating like Remedy Kombucha or Remedy Coconut Water Kefir. Get your glow on girlfriend!

Cut the calories

Booze is FULL of empty calories! Just one beer can contain the same amount of calories as a small block of chocolate and to work off the calories in a glass of white wine, you’d need to walk for just over 2.5km. Yikes! We’re down for exercise but 2.5kms for a vino? Probably not!

Keep posted for our tasty mocktail recipes to get you through February – they’re so tasty you may even make it through to Dry July without an alcoholic bevvie passing your lips!

New to Remedy Good Energy and wanna know WTH it is? Sure thang! Let's do this!

An energy drink that’s all good? All rrrriiiiiight!

Remedy Good Energy is a brand new, live cultured fizzy and the world’s first kombucha-based energy drink. Remedy Good Energy contains all the goodies in kombucha like live cultures, antioxidants and organic acids with the added good vibes and good energy buzz of raw green coffee bean, green tea and ginseng for a smooth energy kick minus the nasties. 

What's so good about Remedy Good Energy?

Made with Remedy Kombucha, Remedy Good Energy is packed with antioxidants, live cultures and organic acids.
For a smooth energy kick, we've added a few extra goodies including:
• Green coffee bean to deliver an antioxidant rich caffeine boost. Boo ya!
• Ginseng:  For the win! Ginseng is known is also rich in antioxidants. Double down on that!

?Naturally, Remedy Good Energy  doesn’t  contain any sugar, crazy unsafe levels of caffeine (more on these though later), guarana, or anything artificial. Remedy's making it right with a drink that delivers a natural energy boost without the crash, jitters or guilt that can come from more traditional energy drinks loaded with sugar and chemicals. 

Where does the energy come from?

It’s all around you. Nah. JK. Remedy Good Energy contains around 25mg caffeine per 100ml or around 60mg per 250ml can. A cup of instant coffee sits at around 80mg of caffeine. Other energy drinks contain around 80mg per 250ml can. Ours has just under, but without the insane sugar load or any artificial nasties. We know what we’d rather drink!

Soooo….what does it even taste like?

Remedy Good Energy Blackberry is plump and juicy, bursting with goodness.

Remedy Good Energy Kakadu Plum is tart and zingy, with a fresh-as finish. Fruity, floral and a whole lotta fun.

How on earth do we make this goodness?

Remedy Good Energy comes from the same kitchen counter that brought you Remedy Kombucha and is made using the same live kombucha culture from the original homemade brew that our founders Sarah and Emmet nurtured back in the day.

Brewed the old school way, all the sugar is brewed out, leaving a live cultured drink with no sugar, naturally! We then add green coffee bean, ginseng and all-natural flavours to dial it up to a whole new level for an all-natural energy drink that's better for you!

When can I drink it?

  • In the AM: Remedy Good Energy is the perfect fizzy to put a pep in your step first thing. Chock full of anti-oxidants, live cultures and organic acids, try Blackberry or Kakaku Plum for a fruity start to your day.
  • The 3pm slump: It’s a thing. Instead of reaching for a cheeky chocolate or soft drink, why not try a Remedy Good Energy and do the right thing by your mind, body and gut! Healthy = tasty with Remedy. No guilt goodness for your gut right here!
  • You’re busting a gut at work or play: You’re out and about trying to get ‘it’ done or pulling a late one because you’ve got an exam or work presentation. Reach for the Remedy Good Energy we say!
  • Sub out a traditional energy drink: Got the jitters from one too many? We get it, we’re no saints either but try a Remedy Good Energy instead and see how you go…guaranteed you’ll be feelin’ good vibes only.

Where can I buy it?

Remedy Good Energy 250ml cans are available at major supermarkets, independent grocery stores, petrol and convenience outlets and online at remedydrinks.com.
