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

Remedy’s just 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. 

Let’s take a look at Remedy Kombucha first...

Kombucha is made from a sweetened 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 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 natural flavours and extracts like ginger juice, hibiscus and kakadu plum before bottling or canning.

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 with all natural ingredients including lemon, lime and ginger juices brewed with Remedy’s live culture to ferment out all of the sugar before adding all natural ingredients including spices and botanicals to create a brand new range of all natural, live cultured sodas that are better for you!

Still not sure?

Watch this!

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.

Poppin' for passionfruit

Continuing the seasonal tradition of bottling flavours that capture the spirit of summer, we’ve launched a zingy new PASSIONFRUIT kombucha to kick off the start of BBQ and beach season.

A tropical tornado of fruity, aromatic goodness for your taste buds with tonnes of tang and just the right combo of sweet and sour, we bet this classic flavour will soon work its way to the top of your hit list. Crack the top before savouring the scent and take your taste buds on a trip to the tropics. 

The fragrantly, fruity aroma and zingy tang of this fizzy will take you right back to your childhood holidays. Warm nights, the buzz of a mosquito in your ear as you try go to sleep, sand in your sheets, BBQs, maybe a bit of sunburn and pavlova. Definitely pavlova. THIS is summer bottled. 

Like all Remedy goodness, our new Remedy Kombucha Passionfruit naturally contains no sugar and is full of goodness with live cultures, organic acids and tea polyphenols.

Made the old school way, Remedy Kombucha Passionfruit is made in small batches following a long-aged 30-day brewing process involving sweet tea and a live culture. The result is the tastiest, healthiest kombucha going around. 

Remedy Kombucha Passionfruit is launching exclusively at all 7-Eleven stores.

Better Homes & Gardens on how to ID real kombucha

Better Homes & Gardens did some booch mythbusting recently with a little friendly expert advice from Remedy Drinks!

Here's how to tell if your kombucha is the real deal.

And a couple of tips from us:

  • Pour some kombucha in a glass and let it sit in a warm place for a few days. If it’s real, a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast should form (a SCOBY).
  • The beneficial bacteria and live cultures in kombucha can only be present in the drink if it is raw and unpasteurised.
  • Check the label to see how the product is made, real kombucha is brewed over time.

Remedy Kombucha reviewed in The Guardian

News just in from The Guardian!

Remedy Kombucha Raspberry Lemonade makes the grade in Fiona Beckett's review of four fruit drinks that aren't too sickly sweet.

"A not-too-scary introduction to kombucha with the flavour of a sour beer. Virtuously raw, vegan and unpasteurised."

We couldn't agree more.

Remedy Kombucha Raspberry Lemonade is a grown-up, guilt-free take on a childhood classic. No sugar. No nasties. Just lip-smacking gut-loving goodness in a bottle. 

 

 

Remedy’s gone global!

Five reasons to get more ginger in your diet

The words ‘super’ and ‘food’ get bandied around a lot. Like A LOT a lot and sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between a fad and the real deal.

When it comes to superfood superhero status, ginger really is the OG. It’s one radical rhizome that has truly stood the test of time for hundreds if not thousands of years in traditional and herbal medicine.

Here at Remedy, we’re huge fans of ginger where it is a key ingredient in some of our fan favourites including our Remedy Kombucha Ginger Lemon, Remedy Kombucha Ginger Berry and ALL of our Remedy Switchel flavours! (Remedy Switchel is made with raw organic apple cider vinegar and fresh organic ginger juice – you can read all about it here).

Still not sure why you should guzzling more ginger goodness? We’ve done the heavy lifting for you (because we’re nerds and we care) with five good reasons to get more ginger inya!

1. It’s anti-inflammatory and full of antioxidants

The main reason ginger is so g-damn great is that it is anti-inflammatory and full of antioxidants. We’re HUUUGE fans of antioxidants here at Remedy (our drinks are full of them).  So why do we keep banging on about them? Inflammation is your body’s natural response to injury or illness but too much can be associated with disease and ill health (BOOOOO). By incorporating more antioxidant rich foods into your diet you’re giving yourself a fighting chance against inflammation. Here’s the good news - ginger is one of the BEST foods you can choose to fight inflammation with its gingerol compound responsible for much of its medicinal properties. No excuses needed to smash a few Switchels – aim for at least one a day we say!

2. It’s belly soothing

An oldie but a goodie - ginger is well known for its calming effect on your gut. Fantastic for those of us who aren’t great travelers, make sure you grab one when you’re on the go whether that’s in a plane, train or automobile. HOT TIP: Ginger is also great if you’re preggers and feeling the not so rad effects of morning/afternoon/all day sickness as it curbs nausea, relieves discomfort and (dare we say it) GAS! We love getting fan mail from mummas to be who find great relief in supping on our ginger based bevvies. 

3. It’s a ripper for post gym recovery

Ginger’s great anti-inflammatory properties extend to your muscular system. If you’ve literally busted your gut in the gym and your muscles are feeling a little sore, grab a Remedy Kombucha Ginger Lemon or Remedy Kombucha Ginger Berry to not only rehydrate but help ease that muscle pain. 

4. Colds and flu begone!

With anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties that can help fight infection,  ginger is a great natural option to support your immunity during the colder months. So when we’re all  feeling a little more susceptible to whatever dreaded lurgy is doing the rounds, reach for a Remedy (with ginger). SCIENCE SPEAK: Ginger is also a ‘diaphoretic’ which means it works from the inside out to heat your body which is just what you need when it’s wet and chilly outside. 

5. Your BFF come TOM

Again with the inflammation and soreness! Women, we hear you. Whatever you need to do to make your life more comfortable around your period, DO IT! When you’re menstruating your uterine muscles may be working overtime leading to cramps. Ugh. The compounds found in ginger may help quell inflammation so we advise to treat yo’self with a Remedy Kombucha Ginger Berry or three (and a hot water bottle).

There you have it – five good reasons to let more ginger into your life!
