If you’re serious about gut health, chances are you’re familiar with Remedy’s range of live-cultured drinks including Kombucha, Switchel, Coconut Water Kefir and Good Energy. And just when you thought you’ve had the pleasure of tasting all of Remedy’s delicious drinks, the leading healthy beverage brand releases Tepache, yet another gut-friendly fizzy alternative—this time, hailing all the way from Mexico. What is it exactly? So glad you asked! Remedy Tepache (pronounced te-par-chey) is a live-cultured sparkling drink rooted in old school Mexican fermenting traditions which pairs tangy pineapple with spicy cinnamon. “There are so many interesting and exciting fermenting traditions from around the world that we’ve explored and Mexico produces some really delicious, refreshing, fruit-based brews,” explains Emmet, co-founder of Remedy Drinks.
“We’ve taken the super tasty traditional recipe that’s made in the homes and sold on the streets of Mexico and put our own Remedy spin on it. Fermenting organic pineapple juice with our live Remedy culture and cinnamon, we brew out all the sugar in the process to create a fragrantly tropical drink that’s crisp and fresh with just a hint of subtle spice.” Like all Remedy drinks, Tepache contains no sugar, naturally with Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar tick of approval. “People around the world have been reaping the benefits of live cultured drinks for thousands of years so it’s great to see a fermented Mexican pineapple soda making it to the shores of Australia for the first time,” Sarah Wilson said. Nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill says the launch of Remedy Tepache is another example of the increasing popularity of live-cultured foods.
“Reaching for the right stuff is easy when it tastes great. Flavour is how you’re going to win people over and convince them to try something new, healthy and little different,” explains Jacqueline. “People want to look after themselves and they know sugary soft drinks aren’t great for their health. They want something fresh and new but rooted in real, authentic traditions. Tepache ticks those boxes and it contains all the health benefits of live cultures, short-chain fatty acids as well as being no sugar, naturally.” Hanging to give it a go?
