BREWERESS AND CANDY MAKER
Eva Sippl is a licensed natural health practitioner (“Heilpraktiker”, licensed in Germany), a polarity therapist, and reiki master. After immigrating to the US in 1998, Eva made kombucha for years at home for her own enjoyment.
In 2008 she decided to launch Eva's Herbucha and bring her creations to the market. 11 years and many thousands of gallons of kombucha later, Eva's Cultured Candy was born.
Eva's Cultured Candy's philosophy is to treat Mother Earth gently and with respect. The packaging materials are either made from recycled material and recyclable or biodegradable.
And as a member of 1% for the Planet we contribute one percent of our annual sales directly to Oregon Environmental Council, Oceans Initiative , Rozalia Project and Big Life Foundation - four approved nonprofit environmental organizations in the network of 1% for the Planet.

What is Eva's Cultured Candy?
Eva’s Cultured Candy is a delicious, gummy bear-like treat made from fresh ingredients in Portland, Oregon. Each piece is carefully crafted using SCOBYs (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast grown while brewing kombucha) and coated with fair-trade, organic sugar.
Developed in small batches to ensure freshness and quality, each piece is handled with great care. The candy, never heated above 110 degrees, maintains many similar health benefits as kombucha -- probiotics, antioxidants and detoxifying acids. They are vegan, gluten-free, raw, organic and delectable. With a variety of flavors, from Apple Pie to Zesty Lavender, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
In order to produce a high quality product, we use only ingredients which meet our standards. The cane sugar is certified organic and fair trade. So is the tea in which our SCOBYs grow for 3 to 4 weeks. It takes time, love and patience to make our kombucha candies. But it is worth it because you can taste it in every little bite.
