A little history
The origin of glass can be traced back to more than 100,000 BC. Archaeologists have found remains of man-made arrowheads from a natural volcanic glass called obsidian. However, it was not until 5,000 BC, in Mesopotamia, that man began to make glass. The preservation of food in glass dates back to 1500 BC.
Glass, a natural material
Glass is made up of natural minerals (sand, limestone and soda ash). It is the ideal material for food preservation thanks to its neutrality and stability. Inert and unalterable, glass is resistant to attacks from atmospheric or chemical agents. These natural resistances make glass a healthy material, and an ideal answer to the packaging requirements of Kombucha.
Glass, a safe material
The glass is pure. It is waterproof and non-reactive. It therefore allows better preservation of food and drink like Kombucha. Glass preserves their natural vitamins, minerals and other health benefits.
Unlike plastic, glass does not contain Bisphenol A, a chemical compound that is potentially harmful to the human body.
It is also easy to clean, sterilize and reuse. It doesn’t smell or stain.
Kombucha is a naturally acidic drink that continues to ferment and become more acidic the longer it sits in the bottles. If Kombucha is in contact with plastic for a long period of time it can leech the plastic into it which then becomes part of the drink.
Of course being kept cold in the fridge helps slow the fermentation process down, however that doesn’t change the original PH level of the drink.
Glass is the best option for Kombucha. Not only will it not react to its acidity, it doesn’t scratch easily or contain chemicals such as BPA.
Glass, a neutral material
Glass is the most neutral and natural of packaging materials. It thus preserves the flavors and allows you to fully appreciate the authentic taste of your Kombucha.
Glass, an ecological material
An ecological material par excellence, glass is the only packaging material that is 100% and infinitely recyclable. It thus contributes to the protection of the environment: a used bottle allows the manufacture of a new bottle without loss of quality or quantity, and this cycle can be repeated endlessly.
All bottles are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before use.

Glass, a noble material
Glass is the only packaging material that can be stored, reused, collected and displayed. It is beautiful. It is unforgettable. It is iconic. The transparency of the glass makes it possible to sublimate the content and reveal the quality, while allowing visual control.
Endlessly Recyclable - Exclusively Natural
At Kombucha Bangkok we choose glass to ensure the quality of your drink and to help reduce our carbon footprint by using a product that is more easily recyclable, uses less energy to produce once it’s recycled and if the bottle ends up in a place that isn’t the recycle bin they don’t leech bad toxins.
Glass is not only the safest for packaging food and beverage, but it’s also the safest for the environment. Unlike other packaging materials that become dangerous waste, glass can be recycled and refilled indefinitely without losing clarity, purity or quality. Protect your health and food with recyclable, refillable glass.
