What Even Are Organic Acids?
What the heck are organic acids?
Shakin' up the fizzy drinks industry for good is what we do best at Remedy! The way we do this is by brewing drinks the ol' school way, following age-old fermenting traditions with all the naturally occurring benefits of live cultures and organic acids in our brews. But, what the heck are organic acids?
Don't fret. Many people don't know what organic acids are or have even heard of them before.
What are organic acids?
When brewin' Remedy, it’s not just magic that leads to a delicious drink with no sugar naturally, but fermentation science! You see, the live culture is what consumes all the sugar, but in the process it doesn’t just disappear, it gets converted into healthy organic acids, also known as short-chain fatty acids, the very same kind produced by our own gut bacteria to aid important body processes.
Organic acids can potentially help to:
- Provide an energy source for the good bacteria in your gut
- Regulate appetite
- Stabilise blood sugar levels
- Regulate cholesterol
- Prevent overgrowth of bad bugs in your gut.
What organic acids will you find in a Remedy Kombucha?
In every 330ml of Remedy Kombucha, you will enjoy 0.7g of naturally occurring organic acid.
How can you tell if your kombucha is chock-full of organic acids?
First of all, taste. The organic acid is what gives Remedy bevvies that subtle tang and good-for-you-but-still-so-damn-tasty flavour. Watch out for any kombucha or other drink that claims to be fermented without some tang - that's how you know they're brewin' the old school way, and you're gettin' the goodness of organic acids.
