Five Quick Facts About Kombucha

Kombucha is a fermented tea drink which is said to have a range of health benefits.

The primary ingredients in kombucha are black or green tea, yeast, and sugar. These are mixed together and set aside for a week. In that time the fermentation process takes place, and acids and probiotic-rich bacteria develop along with a small amount of alcohol.

If kombucha is not prepared correctly, the bacteria it creates can become harmful and should not be consumed. Always buy kombucha from a reputable health store outlet.

*Kombucha has been around for about 2,000 years and is thought to have originated in China before spreading to Japan and Russia.

*Kombucha is also known as ‘mushroom tea’ because during the fermentation process bacteria and yeast form a mushroom-like film on the surface of the liquid.

*One of the main substances produced during the fermentation of kombucha is acetic acid which is known to kill potentially harmful microorganisms.

*It has not been scientifically proven that kombucha has any additional health benefits beyond the usual effect of drinking black or green tea.

*There have been some reports of kombucha causing stomach upsets and leading to adverse allergic reactions.

Scientists advise against consuming large amounts of kombucha until there is more clinical evidence that it is significantly beneficial to human health.
