probyoFermented drinks are the rage these days and health-aware consumers are clamouring for drinks like kefir, kombutcha and kvass.

Absolute Organix is pleased to introduce PROBYO, a new range of cultured, pro-biotic rich fruit/vegetable juice concentrates.

Probyo drinks are produced by natural lacto-fermentation, usIng naturally-occurring probiotic microbes such as yeast, acetic acid bacteria and lactic acid bacteria to ferment the plant sugars. During the process, sugars are converted into organic acids such as lactic acid, acetic acid, ascorbic acid, citric acid, malic acid, propionic acid, succinic acid, tartaric acid and butyric acid, thus leaving the product essentially sugar free and diabetic friendly. These organic acids also act as natural preservatives preventing the growth of pathogens.

Probyo cultured drinks are rich in biogenic substances produced during the culturing process through the enzymatic and metabolic activities of probiotic microbes. These biogenic substances include functional foods such as organic acids, indoles, polyphenols, flavonoids, phytoalexins, vitamins, carotenoids and enzymes. When these biogenic substances are fermented they become more bioavailable, unlocking their full potential as functional foods.

Ingredients used in Probyo drinks include various berries, cherries, ginseng, turmeric, spirulina, cacao, chamomile, elderberry, astralagus and beetroot.

The Probyo range consists of 3 products, a Digestive, Immune and Sports drink. These are 500ml concentrates delivering 32 servings.
