245ml K4 Kombucha Vinegar

K4 Kombucha Vinegar is delicate, herbaceous and rich in antioxidants and probiotics. Craft-brewed for 120 days from premium Darjeeling green tea, lightly filtered, then bottled without pasteurisation to retain the full benefit for your digestive health. Blended with wild Karengo fronds from the South Island, Kiwi ocean superfoods that are rich in minerals and unique marine flavours.

Humans have been fermenting vinegar for thousands of years, with records of its production dating back to the ancient Egyptians. Vinegar is the next step in the fermentation process: we ferment ours from our green tea kombucha for one hundred and twenty days instead of fourteen. The friendly probiotic bacteria can then convert the small amount of alcohol present in kombucha to acetic acid. See below for suggestions on how to incorporate K4 Kombucha Vinegar into your cooking. Remember, however, that high temperatures in the cooking process may kill off the good probiotic bacteria. If you want to keep those helpful, friendly microbes around, it’s best to add it in at the end, so it just has time to warm through and for the flavours to combine. For more ideas on how to cook with K4 Kombucha Vinegar, head over to our recipe pages, or search using the bar at the bottom of this page.

A significant amount of researching is currently being done into the potential health benefits of green tea, and by extension the health benefits of kombucha vinegar. Green tea is naturally high in flavonoids, which function as antioxidants, and research suggests that the level of these antioxidants increases when green tea is fermented into kombucha. Antioxidants are thought to help protect our bodies’ cells from the damage caused by oxidation, a natural effect of respiration.

A light gel (or 'mother of vinegar') may form within the bottle - this is a natural sign of healthy, live probiotics.
