Remedy Kombucha

Remedy Kombucha is a fizzy live-cultured drink that’s damn tasty and actually healthy. This kombucha is chock-full of live cultures and organic acids that are good for your gut health and overall wellbeing. Better still, Remedy is naturally free from sugar – it even has an official tick of approval from I Quit Sugar to prove it.

Remedy is made the old-school way, fermented in small batches using a long-aged brewing process which removes all of the sugar and turns it into healthy live cultures and organic acids.

When kombucha is fermented naturally and kept raw, unpasteurised and unfiltered, like they do at Remedy, it contains healthy, living, good bacteria, or live cultures. Every bottle of Remedy Kombucha contains literally billions of these microorganisms. Live cultures are great for gut health. Read more about this on our blog.

Organic acids, also known as short-chain fatty acids (SFCA) are produced during the natural fermentation or brewing process of making kombucha. You probably aren’t prepared for the words “acid” or “fatty” to be good, but these little treasures are a powerhouse of goodness with proven health benefits.

Remedy Kombucha is teeming with naturally occurring polyphenols – nutrients which are rich in antioxidants to help the body fight illness and slow down the ageing process. These polyphenols – which come from the organic green and black tea that form the base of this brew – also play an important role as a prebiotic to increase the ratio of beneficial bacteria in your gut.

Raglan Coconut Yoghurt

Meet your new best friend to do breakfast with! When Mr Coconut decided it was time to go dairy-free due to allergies, Mrs Coconut started experimenting with making coconut yoghurt in her kitchen.

Locals started asking if they could have some too. The crew of coconut lovers grew and grew. Before you could say coconut-yoghurt-is-the-best-thing-ever ten times, it began popping up in shop fridges all over New Zealand. Now, these award-winning yoghurts are here in Singapore!

Louis & Edwina Scherini

Vasse Virgin is a delightful, family run business in the heart of Margaret River, Western Australia. The company was established when Louis and Edwina Scherini’s children were diagnosed with eczema and advised by doctors against the use of soap or shampoo, Inspired to create a safe, chemical free alternative for their children they soon realised the only way they could guarantee that the products were natural and healthy was to make their own. The Scherini’s began experimenting in their kitchen first discovered the healing powers of extra virgin olive oil, and a new soap product was born made with extra virgin olive oil as the main base,100% pure essential oils and plant extracts.

With the product proving so popular, ‘Vasse Virgin’ became the new brand and the use of olives was further expanded to include a gourmet food range.

Meredith Dairy is a seriously impressive enterprise, where they have made it their mission to provide quality-minded customers with reasonably priced, excellent sheep and goat milk products.
