From table ales to delicious spring water, to sports drinks, energy drinks and eco friendly juices, Slades have a drink made for every lifestyle.

We offer sustainable and ecologically sound packaging – glass bottles, Tetra Pak and cartons, and fully recyclable PET plastic bottles – so you know that when you buy Slades, you are making a great choice for the environment, too.

But, Slades are all about development, we are a family run business that have been at the forefront of beverage production since 1860, and that is why we are interested in the benefits of Kombucha.

Kombucha – What is it, and Why is it Popular?

Kombucha is a fermented drink made from sweetened tea, with a distinctive slightly sour flavour. It can be blended with fruits and other flavours to make a delicious, zesty taste – and with several health benefits claimed by diet and fitness gurus, you can see why it is becoming a trend.

Kombucha is made by brewing sweetened tea, and then fermenting it for about a week with scoby (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts). The bacteria and yeasts convert the sugar into ethanol and acetic acid – and it is the acid that gives the kombucha its distinctive sour taste.

The health benefits that are claimed by professionals include:

  • Probiotics:

The Kombucha production process creates probiotic bacteria which can help balance the gut microbiome and improve digestion.

  • Antioxidants:

Tea, especially green tea, is naturally rich in antioxidants which are good for protecting the body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals.

  • Vitamins and Minerals:

Kombucha contains a small amount of Vitamin C and B, as well as Vitamin B1, B6 and B12.

Of course, Kombucha devotees also claim that it is beneficial for digestion, weight loss, bone health and inflammation, although scientific studies are currently inconclusive. For those who love Kombucha, it is a wonder drink – and that is why we are excited to become known as the best Kombucha manufacturer in Australia.
