A Lesson on Kombucha
Kombucha is fermented tea, that naturally contains probiotics and healthy organic acids. It has been enjoyed across countless countries for thousands of years as a delicious and refreshing beverage that makes you feel good.
Old-school kombucha is made via primary and secondary fermentation, though many brands try to hasten this very natural process. Simply put, fermentation is where the activity of friendly bacteria, yeasts, and enzymes (aka probiotics) eat the sugar in sweet tea and turn it into tasty, and slightly bubbly, kombucha. A couple things to note – all kombucha is made with sugar (it’s more for the probiotics than for you) AND the highest quality ingredients will make the best tasting brew.
Kombucha is a delicious, effervescent, and refreshing beverage—naturally containing probiotics and organic acids, and low in sugar, caffeine and calories. Yum!
