What the Kvass?

A 1000 yr old fermenting tradition from Eastern Europe 

Organic Bio-Beet Kvass is a delicious, hand crafted probiotic health and energy tonic with a deep, tangy, complex flavour achieved through our unique biodynamic fermentation process. Fermentation not only adds probiotics, digestive enzymes and electrolytes it also consumes all of the natural sugars while making its own health giving postbiotics. Fermentation pre-digests our nutrient dense organic beets, herbs and spices into a quick acting, bio-available tonic. Like all tonics a little goes a long way. Each 500ml bottle contains 16 serves and each 30ml shot is rich in living bio-available nutrition that makes it an ideal supplement to your diet:

  • Probiotics - contains seven strains of lab tested Lactobaccilales (please see Faq #1)
  • Digestive Enzymes
  • Dietary nitrates
  • Electrolytes
  • Vitamins inc. A, B's (inc. folate), C & K;
  • Minerals inc. iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, selenium
  • Amino acids
  • Postbiotics - including short chain fatty acids and other organic acids
  • Antioxidants 
  • Phytonutrient compounds.

fermented Beetroot - a Sugar free source of Nutrition inc. Nitrates.

Fermentation consumes all of the natural sugars while at the same time making the precious nutrients in our organic beets even more bio-available to your body - including the dietary nitrates. Numerous studies have found a link between consumption of beetroot juice and increased nitric oxide, which leads to more efficient energy production and utilization. Best of all, rather than drinking a glass of beetroot juice packed with sugar you can now take a small shot of our sugar free kvass for an excellent pre and post performance shot for athletes, students and anyone who would like to increase their endurance and stamina. In addition Bio-Beet Kvass will:

  • Promote healthy blood flow throughout the body and brain making it an excellent support for high and low blood pressure. 
  • Support detoxification and methylation, liver and gall bladder health
  • Is anti-inflammatory while promoting a normal inflammatory response
  • Supports immune and cellular health
  • Promotes brain neuroplasticity, or the ability to form new neural pathways, especially when consumed before exercise.

 

a modern twist

Our range of Organic Bio-Beet Kvass includes six distinct "flavours" - each with the addition of different organic herbs and spices. Our idea is to push out the already strong health benefits of Bio-Beet Kvass with the addition of selected herbs and spices. Fermenting significantly increases the health benefits of herbs and spices by making them more bio-available and at the same time reducing the impact of anti-nutrients such as oxalates. All our herbs and spices have been chosen using three criteria - they are organic (97% are) or at least wildcrafted, they have a long history of safe use and their benefits are well researched. 

 

Taste Sensation - part of what makes kvass a functional food
One of our first commitments when we began making Bio-Beet Kvass was not to dumb the taste down so you receive the health benefits associated with it's taste sensation - sweet, earthy, salty, sour and sometimes bitter. This is because taste stimulates function; for instance we know that bitter receptors are found throughout our body including our gut, liver and gall bladder. Foods that expand our palettes and/or contain all the tastes are especially beneficial to us for this reason. We wanted our products to not only taste bold and great but to also embody the health benefits associated with re-enlivening and re-expanding our palates. That means our Beet Kvass tastes stronger than your average Kvass and even though we love it served straight in a shot you may find that you prefer to mix it to begin with. Notice though how over time it works to broaden your palette until you find that you really enjoy it served straight and you're loving foods that you wouldn't normally eat - especially sour and bitter foods!
 
If your already drinking our Kvass you will also notice that the taste varies slightly between batches this is due to our hand-made small batch process. It's also the most gorgeous deep magenta colour!!
