Jonny Wilkinson’s No1 Living soft drink brand has released a collection of functional health shots and a dairy-free alternative to milk-based kefir.
The new products join the former England international rugby player’s range of kombucha which launched in UK supermarkets in 2018, under its previous brand name No1 Kombucha.
No 1 Living’s kombucha health shots are 100% natural, low in sugar and vegan, with claims of supporting immunity, gut and brain health. To create the shots, active live cultures and a prebiotic fibre are added to a kombucha base that is then further enhanced with vitamins and minerals.
The line comes in two varieties: ginger, grapefruit & lemon (contains vitamin C from natural acerola and vitamin D3 from algae) and elderberry, blueberry & acai (contains iodine from seaweed).
Offering both a dairy-free alternative to milk-based kefirs and a caffeine-free alternative to kombucha, No1 Living’s water kefir is a lightly sparkling fermented drink with added live cultures.
The brand’s water kefir is 100% natural, sugar free and contains only 4 calories per 100ml. The line comes in two flavours: strawberry water kefir with rhubarb, and lemon water kefir with yuzu & mint.
“We’re excited that No1 Living is the first brand that has addressed the needs of the nation by creating an extremely easy drink format that enables consumers to address their health needs – which are heightened during the current pandemic – a kombucha based shot with the addition of live cultures, fibre, vitamins and minerals that are proven to improve gut, immune and brain health,” said Tim Lennox, CEO of No1 Living.
No1 Living’s kombucha health shots and water kefirs are available to buy in Sainsbury’s stores across the UK, with more stockists to follow.
