kvass - www.healthnote25.com

Kvass is a traditional Slavic and Baltic fermented drink commonly made from black bread. The color of the bread becomes the color of the resulting drink. These drinks are classified as non-alcoholic beverages based on Russian standards, as the alcohol content obtained from fermentation is usually low (0.5-1.0%). These drinks may be flavored with fruits such as strawberries and raisins, or spices such as mint.

This drink is popular in "Northern Slavic" countries (except Czech Republic and Slovakia) as well as Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Serbia. These drinks are also known in Mongolia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Armenia. Kvass is also famous in Harbin and Xinjiang, China, which is influenced by Russian culture.

Many kvass vendors are selling these drinks on the streets.
