FAQ

What is FHIRST Living Soda?

FHIRST Living Soda is an all natural, zero sugar gut-lovin' living soda that combines the benefits of both probiotics and prebiotics. It's the 'fhirst' of its kind globally.

FHIRST is all about delivering better-for-you sodas that promote gut, immune and brain health and that are big on taste.

What are the health benefits of FHIRST?

Each 330ml can of FHIRST contains 2 billion living probiotic cultures, microencapsulated for stability and allowing for controlled release in the gut. 

In addition, each can also contains 5g prebiotic plant fibre and added zinc.
Gut health isn't just about good digestion. Gut health has an impact on the health of your entire body, with increasing evidence suggesting a healthy gut microbiome is important for our mental and physical health, as well as an effective immune system. Over 70% of our immune system is located in our gut. Probiotics and prebiotics are essential pillars of a healthy gut microbiome. 

What does 'living' soda mean?

Living soda means that it contains live probiotic cultures of bacteria - the good bacteria for your gut.

How do you make FHIRST taste sweet without the sugar?

It all comes down to choosing the right ingredients. Our fresh juices give FHIRST a delicious flavour, and we work with an infusion of stevia leaves (instead of the chemical compound 'steviolglycoside') which gives the drink a natural touch of sweetness.

What is the difference between probiotics and prebiotics?

Probiotics are the "good" bacteria, that help with digestion and keep your bad bacteria in check. Whereas prebiotics are non-digestible fibre that help the good bacteria grow. Think of them as a food source for probiotics. In short, probiotics boost the growth of good bacteria, and prebiotics are good for probiotics and help them live longer. When you combine the two, it's a perfect symbiosis.

What are the benefits of probiotics and prebiotics combined?

Probiotics boost the growth of good bacteria, and prebiotics are good for probiotics and help them live longer. When you combine the two, it's a perfect symbiosis.

What exactly is microencapsulation?

Microencapsulation is a technique that allows preservation and protection of the active ingredient (in this case, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus strain), enhancing its sensorial features and enabling its incorporation into water-based beverages. Microencapsulation ensures that FHIRST's health benefits are as stable and strong at the end of its shelf life, as they are on day one.
