Tepache is a traditional Mexican beverage that is often sold on the street and enjoyed as a cool, refreshing drink during the day. Like kombucha and other probiotic beverages, tepache is a fermented drink. Tepache is made from the fermented rinds and cores of pineapples.
Tepache has both prebiotic and probiotic properties, which makes it the perfect drink to give your digestive system a boost and help you maintain a healthy bacterial equilibrium in your gut.
The “good” bacteria in your gut allows your body to fight off bacteria that might cause infection. Alongside probiotic bacteria, it’s also important to consume prebiotics. Prebiotics are the “food” for probiotic bacteria. For this reason, foods and drinks that
have both probiotic and prebiotic qualities are great because they provide the bacteria you need for a healthy gut and the fuel that bacteria need to stay alive.
