Sugar-free drinks brand Nexba has added three new flavours to its kombucha portfolio, as well as boosting its size to a one-litre format.

The new Strawberry and Peach flavour will join Nexba's Elderflower and Lemon, and Mixed Berry kombucha in the new one-litre variety, while new flavours Rose Lemonade and Apple Pear and Ginger will be part of the 4-pack (330ml) range.

Nexba says its kombucha includes a 'first-of-its-kind' bacteria, populating the colon at a 30 per cent high rate than other probiotics, and is designed to survive room temperature, unlike standard probiotics.

Kombucha is experiencing a boom in the Australian beverage market and consumer preference, and is forecast to experience a further 25 per cent growth year on year.

The new flavours in the Nexba Kombucha range, as well as the one-litre variety, is available in Woolworths nationwide.
