Kombucha is fermented tea that naturally contains probiotics and healthy organic acids. It is delicious, effervescent, and refreshing – low in sugar, caffeine and calories. Yum!
Old-school kombucha is made via primary and secondary fermentation using 4 simple ingredients, though many brands try to hasten this very natural process. Health-Ade is proud to do this the real way.
THE FERMENTATION 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.
If made the real way, it can take up to 4 weeks to make a bottle. That’s how Health-Ade makes it every day.
