WHAT IS KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha, or “booch”, is a fermented black and green tea beverage using a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast called “SCOBY.” During the fermentation period, the SCOBY metabolizes the sugar, forming living probiotics that line your digestive tract.
Kombucha originated 2000 years ago in China, and was known as “The Tea of Immortality”. It contains B vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and probiotics and has been consumed by many other countries for centuries.
Kombucha has more recently become part of the American diet as many have learned of its benefits. However, not all brands are the same and provide what you expect from your kombucha. Q Booch is proud to follow high standards and give you a quality product that is raw, meaning you can feel confident knowing that we leave the live probiotics right where they belong, so you can enjoy billions of live probiotics in every bottle.
Our kombucha undergoes two steps: primary and secondary fermentation. During primary fermentation, the tea remains in direct contact with the SCOBY. The SCOBY gets to work metabolizing the sugars, generating beneficial acids, bacterias and yeasts in the process. During secondary fermentation, the kombucha is bottled and left to ferment which helps create a refreshing effervescence for you to enjoy.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF KOMBUCHA?
According to Registered Dietitian, Rachel Link, kombucha is a nutritionally alive functional beverage that contains organic acids, antioxidants, enzymes, amino acids and B vitamins with the potential to help boost energy, detoxification, mood and immunity.
Kombucha is an excellent alternative to regular soda. It’s 100% natural, much lower in sugar, lower in caffeine and is free of the chemicals often found in big brand beverages. Not only that, it tastes good. And what tastes delicious, AND is beneficial to you your body, is the ultimate soul nourishment.
