Gut Flora Warriors

journey beyond

We know that the food we eat has the power to transform our lives! That’s why we developed our range of refreshing water kefir, probiotic ice pops, and nourishing plant-based ferments. We’re 100% committed to developing food and beverages that will make a positive difference to the health and wellness of the community… just as these have for us.

Dairy

You've likely spotted milk kefir products at your local grocer. These can sometimes be okay for dairy-intolerant folk to digest, but we wanted to make sure our kefir was accessible to as many people as possible—so we opted to make water kefir instead! Our water kefir is vegan-friendly and lactose-free, meaning those who avoid dairy don't have to miss out on the gut- nourishing benefits of probiotic beverages!

Gluten

Despite the name, water kefir 'grains' are not indeed part of the cereal family and have nothing to do with the hard, dried seeds of rice or wheat. Rather, kefir grains are similar in nature to a kombucha SCOBY (a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast). The scientific name given to water kefir grains is 'tibicos', which is a culture of bacteria and yeasts held together in a polysaccharide biofilm matrix created by the bacteria. Our products are 100% gluten free.

Kefir and kombucha

While both are fermented drinks, these two beverages have their own individual benefits. Kombucha specialise in detoxifying and alkalising the body, making it a great digestive aid. The other notable difference is the flavour: when kombucha ferments, it produces acetic acid giving it a distinct tart profile similar to apple cider vinegar. Kombucha is also a caffeinated drink as it is made from tea. Kefir produces mainly lactic acids aka 'helpful bacteria', which help soothe and heal the villi (gut lining). This fermented beverage is great as a wide-spectrum probiotic due to the many strains of active bacteria produced during fermentation. Water kefir has a mild flavour as it produces less acetic, giving it a non vinegar crisp flavour profile. If you're trying to cut down on caffeinated or sugar-laden drinks and have been lacking a carbonated beverage to fill the gap, water kefir is a great alternative—and it's a functional health booster too!

Kefir

Kefir is a type of fermented beverage made using kefir 'grains'. However, these 'grains' aren't traditional grains (like rice or wheat), but rather closely related to a SCOBY (a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast). To make our water kefir, we add our water kefir grains to sugary water, where they activate, bubble and brew into a sparkling probiotic drink. The grains 'eat' the sugar during this fermentation process and the result is a delicious gut-healing beverage that can assist with digestive health and boost your immune system. Studies have shown that kefir can also assist with treating the likes of depression, IBS, eczema, haemorrhoids, gastric reflux and psoriasis.

Gut Flora

Your body is home to trillions of micro-organisms.Pretty wild, hey! These microscopic friends help your body stay healthy and fit, and a large chunk of them— 400 diverse bacterial species— exist in your gut alone. These are the good bacteria that ensure your digestive system stays happy and healthy. But the junk food we eat today and the chemicals we pump into our body tend to destroy a large portion of this bacterial population, leaving our digestive system weak and our overall health spiralling downwards. But you can repopulate your gut flora with these friendly bacteria by taking probiotics. And rather than simply pop a pill, you can opt for the natural way—drinking kefir and eating kimchi and other fermented foods that brim with probiotics.

FERMENTS

Ancient traditions, Modern direction

Ancient civilizations the world over were wise to the health benefits that fermented foods gift our immune system. But among the bustle of modern society, we’ve forgotten this crucial form of nourishment.

Inspired by old, time-proven recipes, our delicious plant-based ferments combine organic seasonal vegetables with wild fermentation to help yield happy modern guts.
