At Nexba, we make Naturally Sugar Free drinks that taste good and do good. Nexba drinks are always 100% sugar free and have no artificial sweeteners or ingredients.
The Nexba Story started in 2010 when two brothers-in-law in their early-twenties, Drew and Troy, set out to make natural drinks that tasted delicious without the mountain of sugar and artificial ingredients. 11 years later, they’re shaking up the drinks game with their Naturally Sugar Free range of kombuchas, soft drinks, tonic waters and many more.
With real oolong tea leaves and living SCOBY, our ‘booch brews the old-school way for a whopping 40 days to really ramp up your juicy flavour. As if that wasn’t enough, we also add an extra 500 million of our best-in-the-business probiotics in each and every bottle. Specially built to survive the journey from mouth to gut, you can trust that our crafted kombucha will fiercely champion your gut health.
Not to mention Nexba Kombucha is entirely Naturally Sugar Free, which means it’s a sugar free health drink with no artificial sweeteners or ingredients whatsoever. Wahoo!

Unlike other sugarless drinks, Nexba’s crafted sugar free fizzy drinks are all-naturelle, which means they’re the best sugar free drinks without artificial sweeteners, colours or flavours.

In true Nexba style, it’s also naturally sugar free, which means it’s a tasty sugar free drink without artificial sweeteners or ingredients. We’ll cheers to that!
Are sugar free drinks healthy?
In short: sometimes. Lots of ‘sugar-free’ or ‘zero sugar’ drinks you might find in the supermarket are packed with artificial sweeteners, flavours and colours that are just as bad for you as ordinary sugar. Artificial sweeteners are processed chemicals that have been linked to all sorts of health issues.
That’s where we come in. Nexba drinks will always be Naturally Sugar Free which means they contain no sugar and nothing artificial, guaranteed. Our special blend of Stevia and Erythritol is derived from plants, fruits and veggies that uniquely match the taste of sugar, so you never have to compromise on the taste you love, or your health. Magic, hey?!
Our top tips for avoiding artificial sweeteners in your supermarket shop? Steer clear of artificial sweeteners like Saccharin (E954), Aspartame (E951), Sucralose (E955) & Acesulphame Potassium (E950). These chemical sweeteners (and their numbers) are often found on the back of sugar-free ingredient labels, but they’re actually just as bad for you as regular sugar!
Natural sweeteners like Stevia, Erythritol, Monk Fruit and Rice Malt Syrup are all healthy, natural sweetener alternatives that are actually good for you! Opt for these sugar free ingredients when looking to cut back on sugar and artificial ingredients.
Is Nexba good for diabetics?
Yes! It took us six years to discover the most delicious, safe and natural substitute to sugar. We were searching for that perfect blend that was not only naturally derived BUT also tasted just as good as the classic sweetness you know and love. Life’s too short for compromise!
After years of taste tests and trials, we perfected our Nexba Natural Sweetener Blend which is both natural and safe for diabetics.
Our secret sauce is a uniquely crafted natural blend of plant-based stevia leaf extract and erythritol, which is simply the science-y term for fermented fruits and veggies!
What is Nexba sweetened with?
Nexba is a first of its kind. Our Naturally Sugar Free blend is made from two powerhouse, centuries-old ingredients - Stevia and Erythritol. They might sound a little science-y, but are actually completely natural ingredients!
Stevia is a plant native to South America, where it’s been used as a natural sweetener for hundreds of years. It’s about 250 times sweeter than sugar so we only need to use a teeny tiny bit! Stevia has no nasty side effects and is proven to be 100% safe, so you get the sweet taste you crave, without worrying about what it’s doing to your body.
Erythritol is simply the science-y name for what’s produced by fermenting the natural starches in fruits and vegetables. It’s the same natural fermentation process used to make some of your classic favourites like yoghurt, wine and beer. It doesn't cause blood sugar spikes and isn’t absorbed by your digestion system. So, there’s nothing that can take the edge off your sweet day!
The best part? All Nexba drinks have our Natural Sweetener Blend inside, which means that our entire range of Kombuchas, Soft Drinks and more are completely natural, sugar free and taste absolutely delicious.
What is Erythritol?
Erythritol is simply the science-y term for fermented fruits and veggies! Not only is it 100% safe, but this wonder ingredient is a healthy, good-for-you alternative to sugar.
Why? Our bodies absorb around 90% of the erythritol we eat straight into our bloodstream before it gets to our gut. That means we don’t digest that part – we simply get rid of it from our bodies when we pee. And the remaining 10% passes through our intestines almost undigested.
And because we don’t digest erythritol:
Our bodies can’t break it down and turn it into energy – simply put, we get no calories from it
It has no impact on our blood sugar levels, insulin levels or cholesterol levels
Unlike some sugar alcohols (xylitol and sorbitol: we’re looking at you) that do make it to our digestive systems en masse, it doesn’t cause *ahem* gassy upsets
So, erythritol is an excellent sugar substitute for people who:
Are actively reducing their calorie intake
Have high cholesterol
Are looking for a natural alternative to sugar
What is stevia?
Stevia sweetener is made from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant: a South American member of the sunflower family. Indigenous people from Paraguay and Brazil have known about stevia for a while now and have been using its leaves to sweeten their medicines and teas for over 500 years! Thanks to them, the rest of the world has caught onto this magic and Stevia rebaudiana is now grown and harvested globally.
Despite being a powerhouse of sweetness, stevia is actually perfectly healthy. It’s what’s known as a ‘non-nutritive sweetener’, which basically means our bodies don’t store it, so it literally has zero calories.
On top of that, stevia doesn’t affect blood sugar levels or insulin response. It doesn’t cause cavities. And it doesn’t have any negative health impacts.
In fact, one study showed that stevia may even have a positive effect on insulin levels. And that study joins more than 40,000 others that concluded stevia is safe to use in foods. So you can get the sweet hit you crave without the guilt or worry.
What makes Nexba different from other soft drinks?
Did you know that the average 1L of soft drink contains a whopping 25 teaspoons of sugar?! That's almost your entire daily recommended intake in one drink! But don’t panic! Unlike most others, Nexba Soft Drinks contain no sugar at all. Yep, none!
We’ve spent years crafting our Nexba Naturally Sugar Free blend, which you can trust will always be sugar and artificial free. The best part? It tastes just like sugar, so you never have to compromise on the taste you love. Magic, hey!
Nexba Soft Drinks are bursting full of the classic flavours you know and love, just without all the nasty stuff. From Orange to Pineapple, Creaming Soda to Lemon Squash, there’s a classic flavour for the whole family.
Do Nexba drinks contain caffeine?
Our famous Kombucha range does contain trace elements of caffeine due to the natural fermentation process. Because our Kombuchas are made by fermenting real oolong tea, there is a teeny tiny amount of trace elements of caffeine in each bottle.
But don’t stress! The amount of caffeine inside our Naturally Sugar Free Kombuchas is no more than 4 mg (while a standard shot of coffee is 90mg), so you don’t have to worry about any post-coffee jitters.
