When Zac e-mailed me a while ago to ask if I’d like to try Zukay Live Beet Kvass, this was his sales pitch:
“[Paleo] is our chance to get back to that ancestral vibrancy we were all meant to have. That’s why our founder, Scott, made Zukay Live Foods – to combat the modern diet and all it stands for. If you haven’t heard of our fabulous kvass beverages, allow me a quick second, because they’re pretty impressive. You see, all we do is naturally ferment raw organic veggies (a la sauerkraut), and then juice them. That’s it. No sugar, no heat, no additives, no anything. They’re completely and naturally probiotic – no cultures from any lab anywhere. Just our juice from raw vegetables fermented in the same way your ancestors did for millennia. Pretty cool stuff.”
You had me at “naturally probiotic“.
So, I picked a few flavors and enjoyed the opportunity to try Zukay Live beet kvass (and beet ginger and carrot ginger kvass). They are surprisingly good and I can honestly say that I’ve never tasted anything similar. They have very unique flavors (my guess is that you either love them or hate them). My favorite is beet ginger, but I also really like plain beet and I didn’t care much for the carrot ginger. There are actually 7 different flavors (I stuck with the 3 flavors that were also autoimmune protocol friendly) to choose from!
Zukay Live is family-owned. Scott and Cathy Grzybek (along with their two boys) are located in the Eastern Pennsylvania countryside (so they could have access to chlorine-free, floride-free well water to ferment their veggies in), where they make their kvass (and salad dressing too) on site. They are passionate about ancestral health and raw, organic, probiotic superfoods!
So, what better way to follow-up a teaser excerpt from my book on probiotics than with a giveaway for a quality fermented beverage? Yes, Zukay Live has donated a box (5 bottles) of their kvass (you choose the flavors!) to one lucky winner!
