JUN ELIXIRS Jun purportedly originates in Tibet and is traditionally brewed with green tea, raw honey and scoby (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast). Excalibur has upgraded the recipe by incorporating various herbal components into each flavour such as Chaga, Gingko and Amazonia. All this range contain mostly wild-crafted and organic ingredients, and deliver flavour profiles which vary according to which herbal formulation has been used. This is probably because of the deliciously sweet and tangy combination that is achieved as a result of using raw, wild-crafted honey rather than processed sugar, so often present in similar products. For most people, fermented foods usually require some period of getting used to, however with Jun this is not the case, invariably its appeal is pretty much instant.
FERMENTED VEGETABLES These recipes are truly innovative and unique in their field. Alongside the traditional ingredients usually present with sauerkraut, Excalibur also incorporates less traditional and more medicinal plant based substances into the mix such as a micro-algae called Marine phytoplankton which aside from containing a plethora of nutritional compounds and numerous anti-oxidants, is one of the only vegan sources of long chain omega 3 fatty acids like EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), which is converted in the body to DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) which are necessary for a proper brain function and cell membrane permeability.
