REAL VS FAKE KOMBUCHA (AND HOW TO SPOT IT)
Fun Fact: Did you know Brazil is the only country to mandate standards for what is allowed to be called Kombucha? To ensure you’re drinking the real stuf, and not just sugary tea or syrup, look for the following:
REAL Kombucha (like ours!)
- - Unpasteurised (alive!)
- - Unfltered (cloudy)
- - Cold, short expiry date (<6months)
- - Organic
- - Naturally high in B12
- - Alcohol free (<0.5%)
FAKE Kombucha (sugar water)
- - Pasteurised
- - Made from concentrate
- - Filtered (removes yeast & bacteria)
- - Alcoholic (Brewed in large tanks creates high alcohol)
- - Diluted (to reduce alcohol)
- - High in sugar
What is REAL Kombucha
Kombucha is a fermented tea that is naturally fizzy, uniquely sour and slightly sweet. REAL Kombucha (like our brew) contains vitamins and probiotics which helps restore the good bacteria in your body, promoting good digestive health.
One popular origin story suggests it first appeared in Asia around 2000 years ago and the name originates from the legend of a Korean physician named ‘Kombu’ that healed a Japanese emperor with his magical ‘cha’ (tea). Hence Kombucha.
LETS TALK NUMBERS…
Aerobic Bacteria (Probiotics) per ml*
WHICH IS 450 TIMES MORE THAN ANY OTHER BRANDS TESTED!
never from concentrate
Probiotic amounts reduce significantly when Kombucha is filtered, pasteurised, or diluted.
We achieve our HUGE probiotic results because we brew pure, every time
