Reviews

  • Pros: 

    tasty, nourishing, light, easy to prepare, perfect combination of fruit and veggies

    Cons: 

    nothing to add at date

    Wow, I´ve been drinking kencko for 1 month and I might say it became an healthy addiction :)

    From a business point of view I could say this guys could became the "nespresso" of organic, nourishing and pleasurable drink/juice. And at the end of the day all the other product details make you feel a premium consumer (never lose this!)

  • Pros: 

    It's practical, transparent about the use and benefits and tastes really good!

    Cons: 

    Not sure actually! I'm a huge fan.

    I've been an avid user of the kencko products for a while. I love how I can get my 5-a-day so easily and with so much taste. I like to mix it up and use it in different ways.

    My busy lifestyle means that my routines are mostly around my family and work and it's easy to overlook yourself. Kencko kinda cut that corner for me.

Hi @abadesi, PH! We’re super excited to pre-launch on PH and introduce kencko to the PH community! kencko is all about combining the goodness of organic fruit & veg with convenience and portability. Forget peeling. Forget juicing. Forget getting your fruit beaten up in your bag or leaving your veggies to rotten in your fridge. Forget skipping your 10 a day because you’re too busy to squeeze and clean the mess afterwards or constantly on the go (on a business trip, camping, backpacking, on a boat). Grab a packet of kencko (7oz of produce --> 0.7oz of powder), mix it with your favorite liquid and your 2-3 servings/day are ready to drink in <1m! No blenders needed. Just shake it, baby! kencko is all natural. We add no sugars or additives. All it has is the plain goodness of freshly harvested produce. Head over to https://kencko.com/products/kencko if you want to read what our early testers have said about kencko. With their help we’ve been working on improving kencko and will officially launch kencko in early 2018.

We've been getting some questions on whether kencko is meant to be a fresh fruit & veg replacement, so we thought we should make it straight that by all means NO! We love fresh fruit & veg too much. Some of us even grow fruit & veg and will continue doing so. However, precisely because we can't live without our 10-a-day, and because it's not always practical to source them, prepare them or carry them around, we have created kencko. fruit & veggie goodness - hassle = kencko

@lyondhur Thanks Lyondhur. Actually there' nothing like us. When I was diagnosed with acute gastritis, doctors told me that I'd have to take pills for the rest of my life. I decided I'd try to change my eating habits before giving up to a lifetime of medicine - and I cured myself by switching to a 90% plant based diet mostly - fruits and vegetables. When looking for convenient ways to carry it with me at all times, I couldn't find one solution, so I decided to build my own. Since the beginning the goal has been turning organic produce into convenient packets, where * help people build an easy way to keep routine around 5-10 servings/a day (recommended by most doctors) to help prevent heart disease, stroke, cancer and cardiovascular disease; * there' no loss on nutrition & properties, * enough flexibility of shelf life (we have 180 days) * each packets equals 2-3 servings. * gives flexibility where & when to take, and what to add Give it a try, it's on us :) https://kencko.com/products/kencko

@eva_cabral Appreciated Eva. I've got a masters in human nutrition and food biotechnology. The reason I am often times a bit reticent with juicing-startups in general is because the overall value proposition hardly never beats buying and/or growing fresh vegetables/fruits and juicing it ourselves. It's a particular turn-off for me when you guys say "..fruits and veggies alone get boring and inconvenient" as a selling pitch. Things like "*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration" as a tagline, the fact that you do not explain your dehydration process and what additives and preservatives you put in it, how is packaging done, etc etc.. There is just an unsurmountable amount of science elements and socio-economic factors that would favour local, fresh, clean, collaborative and healthy-er otherwise. Moreover, the product entire acquisition chain is filled with problems, waste, method and local impact. Personally, the play on practicality and convenience only works on a market share of people who are not yet fully informed about healthy (and easy) dietary practices. Apologies for the longer message. This is really not something I can support. Not yet, not for a long while and not the way this ecosystem is at the moment.
