While kombucha has long been known and beloved in the wellness world, it has a cousin with less notoriety—Kefir Water.
Kefir Water is similar to kombucha in that it's a fermented drink, but it's a different process that has a few key advantages over the popular drink.
How is water kefir different from kombucha?
While kombucha requires tea (either white, green, or black) for its fermentation process, Tibico Kefir Water is fermented from raw organic sugar cane (Jaggery), whole fruit and spices.
This means that kombucha will always contain caffeine. While it's not much—about one-half of the caffeine in tea that the 'booch is brewed with—it can still add up, particularly if you're trying to avoid caffeine entirely (like this doctor thinks everyone with anxiety should). Tibico Kefir Water is always caffeine-free.
Although Kombucha is full of probiotics, the strains are limited. Additionally, it does contains a range of acids and enzymes that assist with the breaking down of food – meaning it can aid in digestion. However beware, that Kombucha is now commercially produced in high volume and pasteurised in many brands before bottling or canning. As a result all the beneficial probiotics will then be killed in the process and therefore delivers few health benefits.
Tibico Kefir Water is rich in beneficial probiotics that provide your gut with good bacteria including Acetobacter fabarum, Bifidobacterium psychraerophilum, Lactobacillus nagelii, Lactobacillus casei, and Leuconostoc mesenteroides. Added to this, the fruits and spices incorporated during the Tibico process, ferment the natural sugars and phytochemicals; converting them into lactic acid, a small amount of alcohol (less than 0.5%), beneficial digestive enzymes, pre-digested nutrients, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that our bodies love.
