FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does Kombucha taste like?
Kombucha is a cultured beverage, so it does have a tangy taste similar to sparkling apple cider and slighty sweet. Depending on the added flavours, it can even taste fruity, floral, spicy or herbaceous.
What makes Kombucha taste like apple cider vinegar?
The vinegar taste comes from the organic acids produced by the bacteria during the fermentation process. As the fermentation progresses, the Kombucha becomes more sour as more acids are synthesized.
How does Kombucha detoxify your body?
Kombucha contains two billion living probiotics that help to aid in natural detoxification. Kombucha (as well as fruits and vegetables), contains gluconic acid which binds to toxins present in your guts in order to expel them from your body.
Does Kombucha helps you to lose weight?
Kombucha can improve many aspects of health through detoxification and supplementing your body with essential nutrients. By drinking Kombucha, healthy bacteria is introduced into your guts which helps you to break down and digest food. Acetic acid present prevents your body from processing undigested food into fats and is also known to reduce bloating after a heavy meal. Additionally, probiotics in your Kombucha produces important fibers and vitamins, essential for the daily function of your body.
Is it OK to drink Kombucha everyday?
Yes. The amount of probiotics one needs is unique and hence, we suggest drinking one serving (250ml) of Kombucha each day as a start. Drinking one serving each day has been scientifically proven to lead to a healthier gut.
What happens when you start drinking Kombucha?
You will start noticing various positive effects, which includes higher levels of energy, detoxification of your body, weight loss and an improved immune system. While most do not experience its unpleasant side effects, there is a small group who reported bloating and increase in bowel movements. This is due to the work of Kombucha to expel toxins present in your guts!
What are the floaties in my Kombucha?
These are strands of healthy culture! It's actually a SCOBY which stands for "Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast". The little jellies are condensed forms of the probiotic cultures which are completely safe to ingest. They are indications of a successful brew!
Why is my Kombucha fizzy?
Kombucha gets heavily carbonated during its second fermentation, when fruits are added. Carbon dioxide is a by-product of the fermentation process of the bacteria which gives your Kombucha its fun and fizzy taste! This process is similar to the fermentation of beer and sparkling wine in which carbon dioxide are produced by yeasts.

Everyone of all ages can enjoy our Kombucha! Kombucha is a fermented beverage that has been consumed for thousands of years. Kombucha is rich in beneficial probiotics and antioxidants, which can help expel harmful bacteria and may help fight several diseases. We don't recommend Kombucha to anyone under two years old. As a general rule, kids age three and above can drink 30ml on a daily basis.
Can Kombucha be consumed during pregnancy?
It is generally accepted that women should not introduce anything new to their system during pregnancy. Therefore, we recommend consulting with your doctor before ingesting any new products.
How do I store my Kombucha?
Since Kombucha is a raw living food, keep it in the refrigerator at 2-4°C and away from direct sunlight. Once opened, your Kombucha will start to lose its fizz and its freshness, and therefore should be consumed within two weeks. If left unopened, it can last up to a month.
Can I shake my Kombucha?
Refrain from shaking your bottle. Shaking your bottle can result in your Kombucha overflowing due to the natural effervescence. To mix the sediments, we recommend gently tilting the bottle back and forth.
Can I drink Kombucha after its expiration date?
We advise to consume our Kombucha either on or before the date printed on the bottle.
