Red Billion Probiotic Raspberry Sour Beer is a tart berry-red beer, packed with a fruity freshness of raspberries and 1 billion CFU (colony forming units) of bacteria, the minimum amount considered to be an effective probiotic.
A probiotic culture of over 1 billion live lactobacillus paracasei per can helps to regulate the body’s immune system, neutralize toxins and viruses, and enhance gut health, all while maintaining the traditional methods of beer brewing. Probiotic culture is typically found in fermented foods such as sour kraut, kimchi and fermented dairy products.
“Probiotification of alcoholic beverages is a major technological challenge,” says Probicient CEO Claire Huang in a press release. “These beverages contain many intrinsic antimicrobial compounds such as ethanol, organic acids and hops that impair the growth and survival of probiotics,” she says.
Probicient and Brewerrkz invested more than $1.5 million into evidence-based research to develop probiotic beer. Ultimately, the technical team ensured the probiotics’ survivability while maintaining the traditional methods of beer brewing.
Red Billion Probiotic Raspberry Sour Beer is now available at all Brewerkz outlets while supplies last.
