I first heard about kombucha sometime in 2004‚Ä¶ I can‚Äôt remember exactly when. However, I was caught up in all of the new things about food that I was learning and switching over to real milk was taking the place of other beverage investigations. So I am finally drinking kombucha. A wonderful health promoting beverage.
So first off, what is kombucha? Kombucha is tea that has been fermented. It’s always prepared with sugar and tea. Just like any fermentation, the bacteria and yeast feed on the sugar and the byproduct is carbon dioxide and some other stuff which I do not remember at the moment. You should look it up. (who says that? really?) Kombucha contains several B-vitamins, probiotics, enzymes, and antioxidants.
