At Fiji Kava we go by the saying that ‘Not all Kavas are equal’. In the world of Kava there are two types; Noble and non-noble. Non-noble kava is often called Tudei Kava (pronounced two-day). In Fiji, only Noble kava can be found and has been traditionally used for regular consumption. Noble Kava’s favourable composition of kavalactones and chemical makeup gives it a pleasant soothing effect, whilst producing less negative side effects – such as nausea and hangovers.
Tudei Kava is traditionally found in areas of the Pacific such as Vanuatu. Whilst the Tudei Kava variety matures at a faster rate than Noble Kava (1 year vs 5 years), concern remains regarding the high concentration of harmful flavokavains are found in the composition of Tudei Kava. The flavokavains found in the widely used Tudei Cultivars, are known to cause problems for those consuming it. A key area of concern is the liver toxicity observed among the consumers of Tudei Kava in Europe.
