WHAT IS KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha is fermented tea, and it naturally contains probiotics and healthy organic acids. It has been consumed for thousands of years across countless cultures as a beverage that promotes health, and has recently been on a major rise in the US. A little tart and a little sweet, with just the right amount of bubbles, kombucha is a delicious natural treat!
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha is made using 4 ingredients: water, tea, sugar, and a SCOBY. A SCOBY (stands for Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast) is the culture that ends up turning sweet tea into kombucha, and it’s similar to what is used for fermenting real yogurt, kefir, and sourdough. Any kinds of flavors can be added to kombucha at any part of the process. Of course, like with anything else, the quality of ingredients and vessel you use will highly impact the end flavor and quality, so be sure to use glass and only use the best ingredients to brew and flavor.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha is a food, not a drug or a supplement. So it’s best to look at kombucha like you look at a bag of carrots–delicious, natural, and makes you feel good. Of course, kombucha, like all fermented foods, naturally contain probiotics and healthy organic acids–and the science is strong around their benefit to our digestion and our bodies. In the end, try it and see how it makes YOU feel. That’s your best indication for what its benefit will be, beyond great taste!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DRINK KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha is a food, not a drug or a supplement. So it’s best to look at kombucha like you look at a bag of carrots–delicious, natural, and makes you feel good. When you look at it like that, you’ll realize there is no “right” amount or “wrong” amount to drink. Drink as much as makes you feel good! Some like a ½ bottle, some like a full bottle–some like 4 bottles! There is no rule here, as it’s a natural food.
HOW MUCH CAFFEINE IS IN HEALTH-ADE?
Great question! Our kombucha has between 5-15mg of caffeine per serving, which is similar to the amount in a cup of decaf coffee. For comparison, a cup of regular coffee has about 100-120mg and a cup of tea has about 30-40mg. While our kombucha is brewed using black and green tea, much of the caffeine dissipates during fermentation, which is why the finished product is lower in caffeine than regular brewed tea.
DOES KOMBUCHA HAVE VINEGAR IN IT?
Real kombucha should not have any vinegar in it as an ingredient, although many mass-produced brands have opted to hasten their process by adding it as a filler. However, kombucha DOES end up having vinegar (acetic acid) and other types of acids (malic, tartaric, gluconic/glucuronic) in it because that’s what develops in fermentation: the SCOBY (the culture of probiotics in kombucha) eats the sugars and makes them healthy organic acids.
IS KOMBUCHA TEA?
Kombucha is as much like tea as apple cider vinegar is apple juice…so NO, it’s not really thought of as a tea. It’s a fermented tea, and it tastes quite a bit different than tea. It’s cold, bubbly, and slightly tart/sweet.
CAN KIDS ABOVE THE AGE OF 6 DRINK KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha is naturally fermented which means it has a trace amount of alcohol from fermentation. Many parents are comfortable with this, but whether you choose to give kombucha to your kids is really a personal choice.
DOES KOMBUCHA KILL HANGOVERS?
Many of our fans swear by kombucha when they’ve “indulged” a little too much – due to the healthy acids, antioxidants, and hydrating components of kombucha – but there’s not exactly research to confirm this!
We add cold pressed juice after the fermentation process to create the fan-favorite flavors, like classic pomegranate. but always appreciate feedback!! we've received requests for lower sugar options and are currently working on ideas. we hope you'll give us another shot!
