Roar & Tonic launches the world’s first kombucha yoghurt.
In a world first, Australian-made Roar & Tonic has launched a kombucha yoghurt.
The launch of Roar & Tonic’s kombucha yoghurt comes amid the COVID-19 crisis, which has spurred a buying frenzy of all probiotic yoghurts.
Roar & Tonic creator Marina Shufrin said:
“Roar & Tonic contains fifteen strains of live cultures including the Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12 probiotic.”
According to Israeli AI-powered food prediction startup Tastewise, global internet searches for “kombucha” have skyrocketed 55 per cent in reaction to the novel coronavirus.
Ms Shufrin said:
“We fast-tracked our Roar & Tonic range to make it available for people looking to stock up on healthy and refreshing dairy options. Our kombucha yoghurts bring something new and unique to dairy.”
Kombucha is the wildly popular fermented drink that’s been consumed for thousands of years. It’s an effervescent, ancient beverage made from either green or black tea mixed with bacteria or yeast.
Kombucha contains antioxidants, can kill harmful bacteria and many claim it can help fight several diseases.
“The benefits of kombucha are well documented, and our aim was to create something that’s more than just good for you. Slow and long fermentation combined with the most popular Kombucha flavours mean it is absolutely delicious.”
