What is the sugar content of Remedy Kombucha?
Remedy is naturally free from sugar. There is no sugar left in the final product. We use raw sugar to brew our kombucha because it is essential food for the culture, however all of it consumed during the fermentation process. It’s important to look after your gut health and we believe a kombucha that is low in sugar (and high in live organic acids and healthy bacteria) will do just that. Sarah Wilson, author and blogger behind I Quit Sugar, is one of many respected health and wellness experts who drinks and recommends Remedy.

Do I need to keep my Remedy Kombucha in the fridge?
We recommend keeping Remedy Kombucha in the fridge because we think it tastes best cold (although some people love it so much they will drink it at any temperature!). We have run extensive microbial testing of Remedy both in and out of the fridge throughout its shelf life to ensure that the live cultures in our real, raw kombucha stay happy and intact. That fact that we brew out all of the sugar in our long-aged fermentation process means there is no risk of re-fermentation in the bottle.
What is the shelf life of Remedy Kombucha?
Our best-before dates are 12 months from the time of pouring/ bottling our delish drinks.
How long does Remedy Kombucha last after opening?
We recommend consuming within a couple of days of opening. Once opened, the kombucha will start to lose its fizz.

No way. Our kombucha is raw and unpasteurised. This means that the kombucha is never heated, which ensures that the beneficial bacteria and live cultures remain healthy and intact.

Stevia is a plant that belongs to the chrysanthemum family, which grows in Paraguay and Brazil. It contains no fructose yet is 300 times sweeter than sugar. By adding a touch of stevia to our drink, it allows us to truly provide you with a ‘gut-friendly’ drink that tastes super delicious. We blend stevia with a naturally occurring nectar known as erythritol (commonly found in pears, watermelons, grapes and other fermented products like wine, cheese and soy sauce). Both stevia and erythritol have been used as natural sweeteners in many parts of the world for hundreds of years.
What is a SCOBY?
The SCOBY stands for: Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. Also referred to as the ‘mother’, this is the living culture that makes kombucha so special. A great analogy is to think of it as the ‘home’ for the good bacteria and healthy yeasts that magically transforms tea into kombucha.
