Most people don’t realise that not all live cultures are made equal – in fact most won’t survive the journey to your gut and in turn won’t provide any health benefits. But after two years of continuous research and development, our Nexba SCOBY packs a punch with a first-of-its-kind durable live cultures.
Our live cultures with their unique protective outer shell, can survive the treacherous journey. In fact, 85% of the 500 million live live cultures in every bottle of Nexba Kombucha make it to your intestines intact. Read more about our unique live cultures here.
Average live cultures are actually so delicate that bottled kombuchas from the supermarket (except Nexba’s!) often take a hit during the manufacturing process which can kill off the living live culture microorganisms, but Nexba’s special protective outer shell saves us here once again.
They’re so robust you don’t even need to keep them in the fridge. So, you can store your Nexba Kombucha at room temperature and enjoy it on the go, without compromising any of the health benefits.
And while most kombuchas are fermented for around 7 to 30 days, at Nexba we give our SCOBY 40 days to do its thing. Why? That extra time and love allows the SCOBY to digest all the sugar— leaving behind only the good stuff. It also means that our kombucha contains no alcohol or caffeine.
And in case that wasn’t enough, we combine our very special SCOBY with a rolled oolong tea called Iron Goddess. Its light notes of honey mingle with a subtle woodiness resulting in a lightly sparkling, cider-like booch with apple, peach and floral aromas.
