The team behind Australia’s top selling Remedy Kombucha is going nuts for coconut with the launch of the all new Remedy Coconut Water Kefir (ker-feer). The latest addition to Remedy’s all-star line-up of healthy, tasty drinks, continues the Remedy tradition of making it right and shaking up fizzy drinks for good.
Taking a leaf out of Remedy’s handcrafted, long aged kombucha playbook, Remedy Coconut Water Kefir is brewed using a live culture nurtured from traditional kefir grains by Remedy Drinks founders Sarah and Emmet Condon’s original home-made kefir. The result is a light, fizzy and refreshing drink with coconut undertones that contains no sugar, naturally – your tongue will go troppo!
Brimming with electrolytes and minerals, Remedy Coconut Water Kefir also contains organic acids for improved digestion, regulation of blood sugar and cholesterol as well as natural kefir live culture probiotics Saccharomyces and Lactobacillus.
Remedy Drinks founders Sarah and Emmet started making kefir the same way they started making kombucha: on their own kitchen bench.
“We’re always on the lookout for ways to shake things up for good in terms of alternatives to traditional fizzy drinks,” said Emmet.
“When we first started fermenting in our own kitchen, kombucha was where it all began, but as we became more interested in the health benefits of fermentation, we swiftly moved onto water kefir which is a cultured, fizzy water made with kefir grains,” he explained.
“After our initial taste tests, we knew we needed to give traditional water kefir a flavour boost which led us to experimenting with coconut water.”
“The result is a light, refreshing, highly smashable drink with all the nutritional benefits of coconut water but without the sugar.”
The added bonus(es): Remedy Coconut Water Kefir is also organic, raw, vegan and loaded with beneficial bacteria.
“Our customers respond really positively to new flavours and tastes and this is a great way to encourage trial with new and existing Remedy customers,” Emmet said.
Remedy Nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill says coconut water kefir acts as the perfect top up tonic, in any situation:
“Remedy Coconut Water Kefir is a great post workout alternative to sugary sports drinks as it replenishes electrolytes, while hydrating and nourishing the gut. It’s also a perfect swap out if you’re craving a sugary soft drink as its tangy, tropical and ever so slightly sweet flavour will have your taste buds thinking they’re in paradise!”
“You can even pair Remedy Coconut Water Kefir with your next meal to aid digestion and regulate bloody sugar levels – it's perfect for spicy and zesty foods and the dreaded 3pm slump,” said Jacqueline.
Like the Remedy drinks you already know and love, Remedy Coconut Water Kefir naturally contains no sugar, with an official tick of approval from Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar.
“Having worked closely with Remedy for five years now, I know when Remedy say they want to make it right – they do!” said Wilson.
“Our community, and customers around the world now, know this, and trust the brand fully.”
“These guys will keep innovating to give the sugar-free community more options,” said Wilson.
The launch range includes three fabulously fresh flavours:
- Pure: Straight up, as it comes. Tropical, sweet and fresh. Real and raw. Get fizzy with it!
- Lemon Squash: Sweet and sour. Tarty and proud of it. Puts the zing in ama-zing!
- Passionfruit: Fragrantly full flavoured. A fruity, fun festival of goodness.
