The Saba Kombucha brand is available in stores and cafés
Health and wellness enthusiasts will be well acquainted with kombucha – a fermented tea drink full of probiotics that has become popular in recent years. It was always tough to find in UAE stores, but a new homegrown brand, Saba Kombucha, is hoping to make it more readily available.
Saba Kombucha was started by the husband-and-wife team of Vincent and Sabrina Vandenabeele, who live locally. Infused with probiotics and enzymes, their fermented tea is packed with nutrients that are 100 per cent raw, organic, low in sugar and unpasteurised.
As Vincent explains, “Our body needs good bacteria, which can be killed during pasteurisation. Saba Kombucha drinks are unpasteurised to keep all probiotics and good bacteria intact.”
The all-natural brewed beverage is also thought to provide ample health benefits, such as strengthening the immune system, aiding weight loss, reducing toxins in the liver, protecting the body against harmful bacteria and improving digestion and gut health.
Saba Kombucha’s fermented tea contains a range of organic herbs, with a sweet and sour taste. Choose from four varieties – classic, ginger turmeric, hibiscus basil and peppermint. The drink can be purchased from Kibsons and Organic Café locations across the UAE.
