A functional beverage with a taste like apple cider vinegar or a bubbly switchel, produced by fermenting sweetened teas using friendly bacteria and yeast starter cultures.
Sparkling fermented tea is kombucha. We added "sparkling fermented tea" to our cans so you know that our 'booch truly consists of.
Kombucha contains organic acids and tea polyphenols. Early studies indicate their ability to modulate gut microbiota and potentially promote gut health, which can lead to a happy digestive system.
We use a unique and proprietary two-step fermentation process that uses standardized bacteria and yeast cultures. After producing required amounts of organic acids, we inactivate these starter cultures to stop the fermentation process. This allows us to guarantee consistent quality and alcohol/sugar compliance. *Our products will contain no more than 0.5% alcohol by volume.
The fermentation process does NOT naturally introduce probiotics in levels high enough to meet the World Health Organization's definition. For a kombucha to contain probiotics, you must add proven, well-established probiotics to the beverage after the fermentation process.
No, our process does not negatively affect the benefits of kombucha. After extensive research, only two functional benefits were found to be consistent in most kombuchas.
1. Antioxidant benefits from tea polyphenols
2. Gut health benefits from organic acids (primarily acetic acid)
Prebiotics are dietary fibers that promote growth of beneficial probiotic bacteria that are already present in the gut. Probiotics are live microorganisms that, when consumed in adequate amounts, will help support gut health.
Not all prebiotics are created equal. Different prebiotics nourish different probiotics, resulting in different benefits. Most food sources have very low levels of prebiotics. To consume efficacious doses of prebiotics, one may consume per day:
400 grams (~1lb) of bread/grain products
400 grams (~1lb) of asparagus
15+ green bananas
½ lb of onions
Organic XOS fiber is a plant-based prebiotic fiber known to selectively nourish naturally occurring probiotics, like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. It is highly stable and efficacious in kombucha drinks.
The XOS Fiber we use is derived from a natural process using corn cob.
It is safe to ship Prebiotic Kombucha unrefrigerated, but we recommend refrigerating it as soon as you get it to maintain freshness of flavor and stability of the prebiotics.
Absolutely not. Prebiotics are food for probiotic bacteria. They help probiotic bacteria produce organic acids like acetic and lactic acids. Prebiotics are plant-based fibers, with an exception of GOS (galacto-oligosaccharides), which is a prebiotic derived from milk. Recent studies have shown few immunological benefits from few select dead probiotic organisms, like Ganaden BC 30’s product ‘Staimune™’. These benefits should not be confused or compared with prebiotic benefits.
Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha is a fun, healthy alternative to soda or other drinks that are high in sugar. However, since everyone can have a different microbiome, we suggest starting with 1 or 2 cans per day to see how you feel. As a comparison, there is about 1/3 the amount of organic acids in one can of our prebiotic kombucha as there is in a 1.5 oz shot of apple cider vinegar.
Wonder Drink is the first national brand to offer kombucha in a can. Brewed carefully and safely, our non-alcoholic 'booch was made perfectly for you to take ‘on-the-go’, anywhere you go!
Our most popular flavors are back in action with a 12oz slim can, less sugar, and added prebiotics. We are thrilled to have Asian Pear & Ginger and Green Tea & Lemon apart of our prebiotic line up!
