Roar & Tonic launches the world’s first kombucha yoghurt

In a world first, Australian-made Roar & Tonic has launched a kombucha yoghurt.

The launch of Roar & Tonic’s kombucha yoghurt comes amid the COVID-19 crisis, which has spurred a buying frenzy of all probiotic yoghurts.

“Roar & Tonic contains fifteen strains of live cultures including the Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12 probiotic,” said Roar & Tonic creator Marina Shufrin.

According to Israeli AI-powered food prediction startup Tastewise, global internet searches for “kombucha” have skyrocketed 55 per cent in reaction to the novel coronavirus.

“We fast-tracked our Roar & Tonic range to make it available for people looking to stock up on healthy and refreshing dairy options. Our kombucha yoghurts bring something new and unique to dairy,” said Ms Shufrin.

Kombucha is the wildly popular fermented drink that’s been consumed for thousands of years. It’s an effervescent, ancient beverage made from either green or black tea mixed with bacteria or yeast.

Kombucha contains antioxidants, can kill harmful bacteria and many claim it can help fight several diseases.

“The benefits of kombucha are well documented, and our aim was to create something that’s more than just good for you. Slow and long fermentation combined with the most popular Kombucha flavours mean it is absolutely delicious,” said Ms Shufrin.

Roar & Tonic derives its name from the idea that you can have it all in life, as long as you maintain some balance. The “tonic” is the antidote to too much “roar”.

Roar & Tonic comes in four refreshing flavours; Original Jasmine, Mango Hibiscus, Raspberry Lime and Ginger Lemon.

It’s now available at IGA stores throughout Western Australia, with the rest of Australia to follow later this year.
