WHAT IS CULTURES?
Cultures also known as probiotics are “good” bacteria that when ingested in adequate amounts help support overall health.
Not all cultures are the same. Different strains offer different benefits and some culture strains survive digestive transit and temperature better than others.
the most common culture types that comprise the majority of bacteria with recognised cultured activity: Lactobacillus, Bifidobacteria and Bacillus.
Lactobacillus, Bifidobacteria are not particularly resistant to high heat and tend to be sensitive to the extremes of acid and alkaline conditions found in the stomach and small bowel. Studies show that most bacteria are quickly killed before reaching the gut. Bacillus is however a spore-forming cultures which is perfect for our cultured tea and I will tell you why.
HOW DOES OUR CULTURED TEA WORK?
As mentioned Bacillus is a spore-forming culture which means that it's designed by nature to survive even the toughest conditions. With a natural occurring coat (see demonstrated in photo) it can survive both boiling and stomach acid. The protective “shell” only breaks when in the perfect condition - the gut. Like a plant seed—it is dormant and won’t grow until there is the right temperature, moisture and food source.
Research has shown that PURPOSEFOODS® cultures are 10 times more likely than yogurt cultures to make it to your gut alive.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF YOUR CULTURED TEA?
Your digestive system is an incredibly structure that powers your entire body. It’s home to 70 percent of your immune system and it’s where nutrients, vitamins and minerals are absorbed.
In order to keep your digestive system running smoothly your digestive system needs a healthy balance of good vs bad bacteria. Supplementing your diet with PURPOSEFOODS® cultures can help support that balance.

PURPOSEFOODS® cultured teas have been lab tested in a highest standard testing facility in USA to ensure 1 billion cultures survive the brewing process.
Research has highlighted that when our cultured tea is consumed daily (1 billion cfu), it creates a healthier intestinal environment, supports digestive and immune function, and enhances protein utilisation.
Once in your gut, our probiotic produces lactic acid bringing balance back to your microbiome supporting good bacteria you already have in your gut while fighting harmful or ‘bad’ bacteria.
This means all your wellbeing efforts are supported by a gut microbiome that is in balance.
WHERE IS YOUR CULTURED TEA MADE?
Our cultured teas are blended and packed with love in the country side in England. Our culture is sourced from one of the most advanced development facilities in the USA where they are also tested for their efficacy.
