The Shah family from LA, USA put their talents together and came out of the Covid lockdown with Glish, an all-new ginger-based beverage.

“The months of quarantine showed my wife and me that the world needs a fun, guilt-free beverage everyone can drink together,” said Rushabh Shah to laprogressive.com. “Glish is a sparkling beverage made for everyone in your family, by everyone in our family.”

Indian-American immigrants Rushabh and Ashita Shah from San Francisco were horrified when country after country called upon citizens to remain in their homes in an effort to halt the spread of Covid-19. “We were fortunate to be able to stay with my parents during the lockdown,” Rushabh said. “Meals were a bonding time for us, but there was a problem. We quickly discovered that while we could all eat the same meals, we couldn’t agree on what to drink.”

Concocting a simple beverage the entire family appreciated was no easy task. After weeks of trial and error, she finally hit on the key ingredients of Glish: a healthy, non-alcoholic beverage with a taste everyone enjoyed. Glish is all-natural, vegan, non-GMO, caffeine-free, and gluten-free

Meeting the nutritional demands and personal preferences of an intergenerational household was challenging. “Healthy beverage options were limited during the lockdown,” said Rushabh. “We couldn’t find a drink that worked for the kids and grandparents. My parents couldn’t drink kombucha or a prebiotic soda, and the kids didn’t like sparkling water. We wanted a drink we could all have together — a beverage that was simple without compromising on taste.”

Ashita Shah with her background in food chemistry confronted the challenge head-on, mulling over dozens of possible ingredients and flavours. Concocting a simple beverage the entire family appreciated was no easy task. After weeks of trial and error, she finally hit on the key ingredients of Glish: a healthy, non-alcoholic beverage with a taste everyone enjoyed. Glish is all-natural, vegan, non-GMO, caffeine-free, and gluten-free.
