What is Kombucha?
Authentic kombucha is raw and unpasteurized. When made safely and well, it’s bubbly, low in sugar, full of probiotics and digestive enzymes, and just plain delicious!
Kombucha is a fermented and effervescent tea beverage rich in probiotics, low in calories, and just plain delicious. Said to have arisen hundreds of years ago, it is now consumed all over the world but has only become popular in North America since the 90s. Some people swear by kombucha and consider it a health elixir, producer of good intestinal flora, and a cure all for digestive issues. Going that far may be a stretch but there is something to be said for consuming beneficial bacteria. In our lives we are becoming overwhelmingly comfortable with sterile environments. The use of toxic cleaners and antibiotics kill so much of the bacteria in our lives, both good and bad, and we all know how this can become a problem. Whether you’re drinking it for the health benefits or not, one thing we can guarantee is that it’s a great alternative to drinking beverages such as pop, juice, energy drinks and flavoured coffees full of sugar and chemicals. Kombucha is made with real, raw organic ingredients and that alone differentiates this beverage.
