As you all know, I am quite selective with the brands that I will take on as sponsors of Tasty Yummies – most especially when it comes to food and drinks. As someone that generally makes everything I can myself, most of the companies that approach me with products to try and consequently share with my readers, are approaching me with products that I would just never buy myself. If you ran into me at the grocery store, it is more likely that you will find tons of fruits and veggies, your standard pantry items, maybe a couple fun healthy drinks, like kombucha or the like and if I am feeling extra nice, maybe a few random (somewhat) junk food items that I will agree to buy for my hubby.
For me to work with a (food) brand, I have to really love their products and what they are doing and it really has to be something that I can feel good about sharing with you guys. I can honestly say that for every one company that I agree to work with, there are probably 10 to 15 that I turned down.
When KeVita approached me a while back to try their drinks I was so excited – a company with a product that I had already been eyeing up at the store. I have had bottles of KeVita in my hands at the store so many times, but for fear that I might not like it, I always went with my old faithful, some type of kombucha – which I love not just for the probiotics and health benefits, but also for the fizziness!
It has been years since I have drank traditional high fructose corn syrup-laden soda, I can’t tell you the last time I had one, but I absolutely LOVE fizzy drinks. There is something that I just adore about that refreshing bubbly goodness. Whether it be just sparkling mineral water, a health soda pop, kombucha, a good sparkling wine or now, KeVita’s Sparkling Probiotic Drinks!
What is KeVita?
Since I started talking with KeVita, I have had the pleasure of sampling every single flavor of KeVita and I am now obsessed. But, KeVita’s Sparkling Probiotic Drinks really are so much more than a fizzy drink – their proprietary culture starts with four strains of live probiotics. Their probiotic culture is water, rather than milk-based, and is derived from kefir cultures using a process that they have been evolving for years. Kevita’s drinks are certified organic, non-dairy, non-GMO, gluten free and vegan.
What are Probiotics?
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that reside in the gut. Intestinal health depends, to a large extent, on having an ample supply of these beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract. Research indicates that probiotics may support immune and digestive health.
In today’s world our daily stress levels can be so high! Stress undermines our healthy digestive flora. A combination of a poor diet, medications, stress, environmental toxins and chemicals wreak havoc on our digestive tracts. Many believe that our bodies thrive with a constant influx of probiotics to replenish the gut and counteract these negative effects.
So, How is KeVita Different from Kombucha?
I know you guys are wondering this – I was too when I first heard of KeVita. To be honest. I am a big fan of kombucha personally, so I was curious how the flavor compared. KeVita has much more of a toned down taste in that there isn’t that tart, vinegary flavor (that I personally love) that kombucha has, but many people are turned off by. I know many people that do not like kombucha because they find the flavor to be overpowering, but they absolutely love KeVita.
Traditionally, kombucha is fermented with black tea while KeVita is fermented with coconut water, tea or reverse osmosis water. KeVita is light in flavor, refreshing and delicious and I find that the fruit flavors included are much more pronounced and distinguishable than with kombucha. To me the two really are quite different.
12 Unique Flavors
KeVita now has 12 different flavors including three brand new flavors, Tangerine, Blueberry Cherry and Hibiscus Berry Daily Cleanse. My personal favorites are the three new flavors, which are just so incredible, but I also really love the Lemon Ginger, Living Greens and the Lemon Cayenne Daily Cleanse. As someone that sometimes finds stevia to be a tad overpowering – I find these are the flavors that I enjoy the most. That said, there hasn’t been a single KeVita flavor that I didn’t like. All but two of the KeVita Sparkling Probiotic Drinks are sweetened naturally with stevia, Lemon Ginger and the Living Greens flavors are instead sweetened with a small amount cane juice. All of the flavors are caffeine-free with the exception of the Tangerine flavor which includes organic green coffee bean extract and the Living Greens flavor that includes a blend of green teas. All 12 Kevita’s drinks are certified organic, non-dairy, non-GMO, gluten free and vegan.
