There aren't yet any scientific studies that prove why kombucha is good for you so we don't know whether it's natural vitamins, antioxidants, organic acids or the living cultures that cause people to come back for more. Hip Pop is one of the only kombucha brands in the world that harnesses a bacteria called Bacillus Coagulans which has undergone rigorous scientific studies. You get 1 billion of these mighty living cultures added to every bottle PLUS all the yet unknown benefits of fermented kombucha with all its other wonderful properties.
Unfortunately no. It’s a bit like beer, wine or coffee, you get the mass-made stuff and then you get carefully craft made booch. Hip Pop is brewed in a traditional craft way on a beautiful farm in cheshire
Organic farmers must meet strict EU standards and farm in a sustainable way without using pesticides or other toxins. Since we went organic our nutritious Kombucha has a much deeper flavour and character (Organic Food Federation GB-ORG-04 - 01912/20).
We use a small amount of organic cane sugar to feed the gorgeous Kombucha cultures. Any residual sugar is broken down during fermentation so it’s easier for the body to process. Per 100ml, our Kombucha varies from 2.6g to 2.8g. To put things into perspective it's less than natural carrot juice. Natural Orange juice is around 8g and bottled smoothies can be as high as 18g. We never use ultra-processed sweeteners such as stevia or erythritol found in zero sugar Kombucha
Yes, like all fermented drink and food, our kombucha contains trace alcohol. But it’s so tiny that it’s classed as non-alcoholic (below 0.5%). Caffeine is metabolised during fermentation so it contains 1/3 caffeine of an equivalent cup of tea.
Yes, our Kombucha is 100 percent gluten-free and dairy-free. It is made of 4 premium ingredients: organic loose leaf green & black tea, organic cane sugar, our own in-house kombucha culture and subtly flavoured with organic fruits and herbs.
