About Calpis

Calpis, a Japanese original drink, was first made over one hundred years ago in 1919 by a researcher called Kaiun Mishima. He was researching lactobacilli (AKA lactic acid), a bacteria produced by fermentation. A present day example of lactobacilli is a starter, such as sourdough or kombucha (fermented tea). Calpis is made by mixing sugar, lactobacilli or lactic acid, and skimmed milk to produce a concentrated substance that can be used as a base.
