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?

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.

5 hacks for a healthier kids' party

by Jacqueline Alwill

Most parents would agree that planning a kids’ party with the (inevitable) sugar highs that come with party food and treats is a tad exhausting even before the party starts. So to save you from your next kids’ party headache, dive into these 5 hacks for a healthier kids’ party.

1. FIND FAMILY FAVES

Plan the party WITH your kids when it comes to activities and food. Understand what makes them completely stoked and then be clever in the way you balance the party and health-ify it. If a piñata is on the cards, pop in some cool treats to balance the sweet ones exploding out of it. If your family loves a chocolate cake then make that the hero and leave the extra sugary cupcakes or dense brownies out of the plan. And, if lolly bags to take home are a non-negotiable then top up with some items that maybe aren’t related to food, but still super fun – try packs of cards, cool pencils or mini joke books instead. 

2. ENJOY THE SWEET

But be savvy in how you peel it back, so it doesn’t become a sugar rave. Kids actually don’t care if it’s lollypops on a table or watermelon cut and presented with a stick like a lollypop. It’s the novelty that counts for them and they’ll eat whatever is there. Remember that, because in the midst of wanting to make each party epic for your kids, it can be lost. Simple go to treats without the refined sugar hit might include:

3. SAY HEY TO SAVOURY

To balance the sweet, make it a 2:1 ratio of savoury to sweet on the table and you’ll have a much happier bunch of kids in your company. Remember you don’t have to be making everything yourself, hunt down good quality party food from your local baker, pizzeria or sushi store to top things up and get some quick, little person loving, savoury action on the food table. Consider these crowd favourites:

  • pizza slices - many great pizza shops will happily make up a large slab of pizza with a simple margherita topping if you order in advance
  • mix of brown and white rice vegetable sushi
  • veggie dip boats
  • mini frittata
  • sweet potato wedges
  • vegetarian sausage rolls
  • lavosh or pita bread chips with (no spice) guacamole

4. SWAP THE SODAS

There are always better options and Remedy Drinks has just made the healthiest yet with their NEW fermented soda range. Whilst the idea of juice boxes and some sneaky sugar laden soft drinks might be tempting to keep the small peeps happy this party season, rethink your choices for a HAPPIER and HEALTHIER event. Remedy Drinks has just introduced five new fermented sodas to the Remedy stable including crowd favourites such as Cola, Lemon Lime and Bitters, Lemonade, Ginger Beer and Oranja which means there is a flavour for everyone big and little alike. What’s the difference between Remedy and the ‘usual’ soft drinks or sodas you ask? Well … Remedy Sodas are made with organic fruit juices brewed with Remedy’s live culture to ferment out all of the sugar before adding all natural ingredients including spices and botanicals. Remedy Drinks are making sodas right, with no sugar, naturally. A healthier, tasty fizzy? Yes please!

5. RUN THEM RAGGED

Finally, rather than leave the cake til last, sneak it in half way, get the savoury food out and run kids around before parents come to pick up. Tap into all your old favourite party games and tricks you loved growing up and bring them to life again - pin the tail on the donkey (maybe a minion?), three legged or egg and spoon races, tag, tip you name it. A party planned around great games, healthy food and drinks and family faves are fun filled, healthy kids’ parties done right. 

Recipe: Choc Dipped Pineapple Triangles

Makes approximately 24 slices

Dairy Free: Gluten Free: Refined Sugar Free: Vegan

  • 1 small pineapple, sliced into 1cm thick triangles, skin left intact
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Toppings: finely chopped pepitas, pistachios, coconut flakes, cranberries, or any other dried fruits and nuts you wish

Whisk together coconut oil, raw cacao powder, maple syrup and vanilla.

Line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Dip 3/4 pineapple piece into melted chocolate, allow a little to drip off the end, lay onto tray and repeat.

Place in fridge to set for 10 minutes then repeat with remaining chocolate this time adding the dried fruit, seeds and nuts (optional) on the top of the pineapple and chocolate.

Pop back in fridge or freezer to set and serve straight from fridge or freezer (chocolate will melt quickly if it’s a hot day!).

Remedy's fresh twist on sodas

Here at Remedy, we're all about shaking fizzy drinks for good and guess what? We're doin' it!

Remedy Sodas are a fresh twist on your old school favourites, reinvented for today’s healthier times.

We're making it right and reclaiming fizzy drinks for what they’re meant to be - refreshing drinks, traditionally fermented with real all-natural ingredients in small batches.

And just like the rest of our tasty Remedy bevvies, Remedy Sodas are live cultured with no sugar, naturally.

WTH's a live cultured soda?

Remedy Sodas come from the same kitchen counter that brought you Remedy Kombucha BUT they're NOT kombucha! Amazing! Minds blown!

Think of Remedy Sodas as the perfect bevvie if you aren't quite ready to jump on the booch train but you want to make some healthier swaps in your diet. We get it. Baby steps. 

While Remedy Kombucha is made with tea, Remedy Sodas are made with organic fruit juices brewed with our Remedy 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 live cultured sodas that are better for you!

how Remedy Sodas are made how Remedy Sodas are made

Why should I choose a live cultured soda over a regular fizzy?

Made with natural live cultures, Remedy Sodas are positively jammed with goodies for your mind, body and gut! Remedy's range of live cultured sodas offer a real, tasty alternative to sugary soft drinks making it easier and tastier to reach for the right stuff!

Live cultures can help support gut health by:

  • Increasing the diversity of your gut flora – these are the good bugs that live in your gut to get things working as they should
  • Preventing the growth of bad bugs that make you sick
  • Supplying billions of microorganisms that are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, which the healthy bacteria in your gut use as a food source to produce important metabolites for good health


Organic acids
also known as short chain fatty acids (SFCAs) can:

  • Provide an energy source for the good bacteria in your gut
  • Help to regulate appetite
  • Stabilise blood sugar levels
  • Regulate cholesterol
  • Like live cultures, also help prevent overgrowth of bad bugs in your gut


Naturally contains no sugar:
The beauty of Remedy Sodas is that although they are made with organic juices which naturally contain sugar, all the sugar is eaten up by the live cultures during fermentation to maximise those amazing organic acids. Remedy brews out ALL of the sugar, and we test every batch to make sure. This is why Remedy Sodas have the official tick of approval from Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar.

Organic and all-natural: Remedy Sodas are all-natural and certified organic, providing a natural energy kick without crash and burn of sugar and caffeine highs.

Tempting...but what do they taste like?

Remedy live cultured sodas are fizzy, super refreshing and come in five fab flavours:

Oranja: Our take on a timeless orange soda minus the sugar. Zingy, sunny and bright whole fruit flavours made with real organic Valencia oranges.

Lemonade: A fresh take on a classic, Remedy’s live cultured lemonade is made with freshly squeezed organic lemon juice for a big burst of zest and tang with no sugar, naturally.

Lemon, Lime & Bitters: A live cultured soda made the old school way with real lemon, lime and botanicals. Fresh-as flavour and oh-so-aromatic.

Cola: This right here is the real deal. Cola made right. Ginger, kola nut and vanilla combine to create a smooth, live cultured cola.

Ginger Beer: Big bang tang! This is how Ginger Beer is meant to be. Real ginger for fiery, fresh, full-on flavour and warmth.

When can I drink sodas?

You’re a newbie: Not ready to jump on the booch train? Think of Remedy Sodas as your gateway to the delicious world of tasty, live cultured bevvies. We get it, sometimes you need to take baby steps.

Sub out a traditional soft drink: The crisp, fresh flavours of Remedy Sodas make them a perfect swap for sugary soft drinks. Whether you’re looking for an old school Lemonade or a Cola made right, we’ve got you.

Reach for the right stuff and swap out juice: While we use real, organic fruit juice in our sodas, all the sugar is brewed out making these bevvies a super fresh swap for traditional sugary fruit juice. 

Kids' birthday parties: Notorious for sugar highs and lows, avoid the kiddie crash ’n’ burn and opt for healthy, live cultured sodas at their next birthday party. Our fun size 250ml cans are just right for little hands.

Mix it up: Giving booze a break? Remedy Sodas are a great option to take to BBQs, parties and picnics instead. But if you ARE imbibing, Remedy Sodas also make great mixers. Try Lemon, Lime and Bitters, Ginger Beer or Lemonade in your next mixed drink.

Where can I find Remedy Sodas?
