What the company says:
Whether you’re a city dweller, beach-goer or Bondi Hipster, Bionade is a suitable non-alcoholic alternative to sugary summer sips for anyone – youngsters, families, business people and athletes alike.
Bionade was a labour of love for passionate Bavarian brewer, Dieter Leipold who vowed to create the first brewed, 100 percent certified organic and sustainable refreshing drink that appealed to the masses. After 10 years of experimenting right in his at-home bathroom, Leipold discovered a fermentation process that transferred sugar into a mild and natural gluconic acid rather than alcohol – thus, Bionade was born.
Dubbed “The Official Drink for a Better Life” because of the company’s mission to positively impact people’s everyday lives – putting smiles on people’s faces – Bionade is a refreshing and naturally-flavoured soft drink with an original taste. It is brewed like a German Beer in accordance with its own purity law but without the alcohol content. Because of its unique fermentation process, BIONADE is also bikini-body friendly containing 50 percent less calories than traditional soft drinks.
The unique drink is available in four flavours, Elderberry, Herbs, Lychee and Ginger-Orange and is sold at various retailers individually (RRP $4.00 AUD), in four-packs (RRP $15.00 AUD) or cases of 24 (RRP $80.00 AUD).
