What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a natural probiotic beverage produced by fermenting sweet tea with a culture of yeast and bacteria.
During the course of the fermentation process, the cultures metabolize the sugar and tea components to render a sweet-tart flavor beverage full of healthy components like probiotics, B vitamins, organic acids and antioxidants.
These microorganisms are the “good” type of bacteria similar to what occurs naturally in our intestines. Probiotics are great for overall gut-health, de-bloating, lowering cholesterol, and help to promote a healthy immune system.
What is the shelf-life of Kombucha?
Kombucha needs to be refrigerated and can be good for quite some time.
Kombucha doesn’t really go bad and the live culture prevents anything harmful from growing. However, after a few months, kombucha eventually will turn to a vinegar and can be a little too acidic to drink (it can then be used as vinegar).
Does Kombucha contain gluten, dairy or animal products?
No, our kombucha only contains organic black and green tea, organic sugar, filtered water and natural fruit / spices.
Kombucha is gluten free, dairy free, vegan and halal.
Does Kombucha contain alcohol?
Kombucha contains trace amounts of alcohol, a natural byproduct of the fermentation process that preserves the brew and protects it from harmful microorganisms. The trace amounts of alcohol are similar to what you would find in unpasteurized fruit juice. Kombucha is considered halal because it is non-inebriating and the ethanol serves as a preservative.
How much Kombucha should I drink?
If you’ve never had kombucha and if you’re concerned about how it might react with your body, start out with just drinking 100ml. per day. Drink at least an equal amount of water with it and see how you feel. Like it? The next day, start drinking 150ml. The day after that, try 200ml. Make sure you’re staying hydrated (though we should all be drinking lots of water whether we consume kombucha or not).
Some people experience some “detox” symptoms as the body cleanses itself of toxins, these symptoms can include tummy issues or even headaches. They are usually very mild (if they happen at all). But everyone is different, and everyone has a different level of tolerance. So you have to decide for yourself how to best handle it.
Listen to your body. Consume what you like and what contributes to your overall wellness!
