A Sunny Science Beginning
PERKii has a unique background when it comes to the beverage world, being born from a world-leading University, developed with a specific drive to solve an age-old challenge.
It’s this same innovative state of mind, and focus to create Better For You solutions that drive the PERKii probiotic drinks team today.
When Professor Bhesh Bhandari and his team at UQ's School of Agriculture and Food Sciences began researching encapsulation methods for active ingredients such as probiotics, they had a major challenge to overcome: how to ensure these 'good-for-gut' bacteria could safely make their way to a person's gut.
Probiotics were known to provide many health benefits, but could not survive the trip to the intestine due to the highly acidic environment of the stomach.
It's hard to believe that something good for you can also taste great. But powered by ProGel technology, PERKii is able to create a refreshing probiotic drink without the need for fermentation, while delivering more probiotic goodness where they count: your gut.

"I’m on the probiotic bandwagon so thought I’d try out Perkii. Seriously delicious - and seeing as juice is a treat in our household, I snuck it into my bedroom and consumed the whole thing whilst the little ones were occupied."

"Having suffered from Diverticulitis over a period of 5 years, and then having to go through chemo treatment, I have finally found a probiotic that actually works and relieves the symptoms. I feel like a new person who has more energy, no bloating any more and no more pain allowing me to go on with my life. Thank you PERKii!"

"I'm 36 weeks pregnant and I was diagnosed with severe gastritis 2 weeks ago, I was in so much pain and nothing was helping. I discovered Perkii Probiotics at Coles and decided to try it. I've been drinking it for the last week at breakfast and have not been in any."

"The PERKii range is fabulous to drink along with our healthy Zambrero food.
Not only is it good for your gut but tastes amazing. Mango Passionfruit is my go to!"
