Lets Change Our Inner Culture
Water Kefir (pronounced keh-FEER). The word Kefir is derived from the Turkish word 'Keif" describing a state of 'feeling good'.
Kefir grains (actually look like blobs of clear jelly) are an amazing symbiotic matrix of bacteria and yeast working together to feed off the natural sugars found present in sugar-water and dried fruits. The yeast and bacteria co-operate and break down the simple sugars like glucose and fructose, the by-products are Lactic and Acetic acids, these naturally preserve as well as stave off harmful foreign bacteria. The result is a drink with a very low sugar content. It also contains billions of live gut friendly microbiome building cultures.
Water Kefir is a refreshing, fermented, low sugar, low calorie water beverage. It has a low glycaemic load, no caffeine & diary free.
At Tummy Culture we only use water that has been filtered to remove nasty chemicals and potential pathogenic microbes, all our raw ingredients are sourced from certified organic suppliers. We never use anything artificial in any of our Water Kefir drinks, no sweeteners, no colours, no flavourings, no preservatives & that's why our drinks have a short shelf life and we can only sell direct to our loyal customers. At Tummy Culture we ferment water kefir in small quantities so the high quality premium taste is worth the time and effort, going even medium scale commercial with water kefir means cutting corners and its something the Tummy Culture team just won't do.
*Finally all of our products are regularly lab tested for known pathogens ,the labs meet UKAS standards .

Hi, I'm Bobby and thank you for taking the time out to visit the Tummy Culture website.
I've been very fortunate to travel to many exciting countries over the years , I love experiencing new foods and ways of creating new dishes using familiar ingredients. Unfortunately, even the best-prepared travellers can succumb to tummy problems with all the new food & drinks.
Without exception, every culture will have some traditional, centuries-old remedy for an upset stomach. The most common cures stem from some type of fermented product, typically yogurt type drinks are well-known. For the diary free among us, I found people drinking 'Fermented Water Kefir'. No one really knows its origins or background but some evidence points to Mexico and the "prickly pear cactus". The culture grains have also been mentioned by various names around the far east.
We've been fermenting water kefir for about five years,first for friends & family but we also supplied health conscious consumers at weddings, open-air events, and farmers market stalls, this all had to change in 2020 with the Covid-19 pandemic. Our loyal customers still wanted their water kefirs ,honeys & booster juices .So we setup the Tummy Culture website to keep our customers supplied with their favourite high quality products. Authenticity and uniqueness are key to our products and this is why we will only sell direct to customers and not through large retailers.
Over the last five years, we've acquired many different grains of kefir culture and after countless batches; we believe we now ferment the best tasting water kefir anywhere. At Tummy Culture we are proud to say we only use the highest quality organic ingredients, we NEVER use any artificial additives or sweeteners, our clear labels show we have nothing to hide.
Your gut will love you for choosing Tummy Culture.
