Mississippi Made Kombucha

Lauren Rhodes is the owner of a Jackson-based fermented foods company, Sweet & Sauer, offering foods, condiments, and drinks that are all teeming with probiotics and enzymes! Lauren stopped by the studio to talk to Rebecca about how she made her way from her home state of Colorado to Mississippi and what inspired her to stay in the Magnolia State to start her business.

Ryno had never tried Kombucha before, so Rebecca convinced him to give it a shot. Lauren let Ryno try the Sweet & Sauer Blueberry Ginger Kombucha, and much to Ryno’s surprise, he actually liked it! He said it tasted a bit like Ginger Beer, with a smooth sweetness and a carbonated bite. If the other fermented foods are anything like that drink, Ryno might have found a new healthy food to add to his diet for Operation Healthy State!

Lauren’s products are available in Oxford and Jackson, but she does hope to expand her operations across the state!
