WHAT IS KOMBUCHA?
There's a reason this ancient beverage has become so popular. Curious about the basics of this fizzy, fermented tea?
We're proud to share a little more about our fermentation process, potential gut health benefits, and our simple, real food recipe.
Kombucha is made by adding a culture to sweetened brewed tea. Many brands try to hasten this natural process, but Health-Ade is proud to do this the traditional, real-food way.
WHAT ARE THE KOMBUCHA BENEFITS?
As you may know, kombucha is a traditionally fermented food, not a supplement or prescription. We suggest you view this fizzy, fermented beverage like you would yogurt, kefir, or even your favorite vegetable: wholesome, natural, and a contributor to feeling good. Naturally, Kombucha, like other fermented foods, contains healthy acids and living probiotics - on which the science is continually becoming more robust. Most people drink kombucha for its great taste and because it makes them feel good. We hope you feel the same!
WHAT IS YOUR KOMBUCHA RECIPE?
Health-Ade follows the traditional ancient recipe for kombucha: 1 cup of sugar per gallon of tea (we use a combination of black tea and green tea, aged kombucha often called "starter"), and a SCOBY. Our fermentation process takes time, as does everything in nature, but we are committed to bringing you the best tasting and highest quality kombucha!
Our process uses only the best ingredients, like cold-pressed juice from organic produce sourced from local and global farms. And we ferment in super small 2.5 gallon glass jars, which gives us better control over the quality of our brew, and also prevents plastic and metal leaching.
This is very similar to the way you would brew kombucha at home - just on a larger scale. We don't think any other company out there makes it quite like us, and we feel proud to offer you what we consider the most real and authentic kombucha you can buy.
