The fermentation craze has brought new energy to the carbonated beverage shelf. We take a look at what’s inside two of the latest offerings.

Kombucha is a slowly fermented probiotic tea that’s been activated with the addition of a culture known as SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast).

When fermentation is complete, manufacturers can then flavour the drink with natural fruits, roots, and spices.

As a functional beverage, kombucha claims to improve digestion and gut health, increase energy and nutrient absorption, provide immune-system support, reduce inflammation, and aid in muscle recovery.

These two companies are capitalising on the benefits with their own kombucha brews.

 Melbourne-based Cool Cool Beverages manufactures ready-to-drink Liberty Kombucha.

This range of sparkling fermented teas aims to provide energy, healing, and functional support and has less than 1.5g of sugar per bottle.

The company makes the teas from organic ingredients and pure, filtered water.

The Cool Cool Beverages team brews and bottles the product by hand. Liberty Kombuchas are free of additives and preservatives.

They come in a range of flavours, such as original, lemon & coconut, Kakadu plum & ginger, and pomegranate.
