Kava

Our quality starts with root selection.Ā 

We use hand-selected, premium Beverage Grade Vanuatu Borogu Lateral roots to make our Kava extracts, not leftover scraps peelings and chips, or undesirable cultivars such as ā€œTudeiā€ or ā€œWaeldā€ Kavas.

Our Kava is then thoroughly washed and hand peeled in a state-of-the-art facility before being air-dried indoors, rather than being exposed to the elements to be sun-dried. Air drying preserves the Kavalactones while the UV rays and heat from the sun degrades them.

Quality through lab testing.

Each batch of Polynesian GoldĀ® extracts are rigorously tested and must meet extremely strict quality controls before the Polynesian Gold brand name is bestowed upon the product. Ā We test our materials for microbiological, heavy metals, pesticides, as well as Kavalactone content and we test each individual Kavalactone to ensure that the chemical profile of our extract is of a desirable Beverage GradeĀ chemotype. The result is a consistent, high-quality standardized kava product that represents the very best kava of Beverage GradeĀ Kava.
