What is Organic Kombucha?

Organic Kombucha

Kombucha is made by fermenting sweetened black or green tea with a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). This fermentation process creates beneficial probiotics, enzymes, and organic acids that have numerous health benefits. Organic Kombucha differs from regular Kombucha only in that it is made from organic ingredients.

It can be purchased at most health food stores or made at home using our MAI kit. It is important to note that organic Kombucha contains live bacteria and yeast, so it should be consumed within a week of opening it. Once opened, Kombucha should be stored in the fridge and enjoyed in the cold.

How to make Organic Kombucha?

Making your own kombucha at home is relatively simple and only requires a few key ingredients. The first step is to find a SCOBY. For more information about the organic SCOBY, click here.

Pasteurized Kombucha vs. Organic Kombucha

Pasteurized Kombucha vs. Organic Kombucha

Pasteurized Kombucha is Kombucha that has been heated to kill any bacteria, both good and bad. This pasteurization process changes the traditional Kombucha manufacturing process, which relies on naturally occurring bacteria to create the probiotic drink. 

Producers of pasteurized Kombucha argue that the pasteurization process does not significantly change the probiotic bacteria or the content of the drink and that pasteurized Kombucha is therefore just as healthy as unpasteurized Kombucha. However, pasteurization destroys many of the bacteria benefits of Kombucha, including probiotic bacteria.

What is the fermentation process?

organic kombucha

The fermentation process is a way of using microorganisms to convert sugar into acids, gases, or alcohol. This process takes place in the absence of oxygen and is used to produce foods and beverages such as Kombucha, wine, beer, bread, and cheese.

There are many different types of fermentation, but they all share some common characteristics. First, fermentation takes place in an anaerobic environment, which means no oxygen is present. Second, microorganisms are used to catalyze the chemical reactions involved in fermentation. And finally, fermentation results in the production of one or more end products, such as alcohol or lactic acid.

The Kombucha fermentation process starts with sweetened black or green tea. A SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) is then added to the tea and the mixture is allowed to ferment. During fermentation, SCOBY consumes the sugar in the tea and produces a variety of organic acids. These acids give Kombucha its sour taste and characteristic effervescence. Kombucha also contains small amounts of alcohol and B vitamins.

When is the best time to drink Kombucha?

There is some debate about when is the best time to drink Kombucha. Some say that first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is best, while others believe that midday or before bedtime works best. Fermented foods are beneficial at any time of day, but drinking Kombucha specifically can offer different benefits depending on when you drink it.

If you drink Kombucha first thing in the morning, it can help detoxify your body and improve digestion. The probiotics in Kombucha can also help balance your gut bacteria. Midday Kombucha can give you a natural energy boost as it contains small amounts of caffeine and B vitamins. Drinking Kombucha before bed can help you sleep better as it can promote relaxation.

Ultimately, the best time to drink Kombucha is whenever you drink it consistently. If you're less likely to drink Kombucha in the morning, don't force yourself to do so. Please choose a time that suits you and stick to it. Her body will thank you.

What should you consider when choosing a brand of Kombucha?

There are a few things to consider when buying organic Kombucha. The first is the sugar content. Kombucha is made by fermentation, which means that some sugar will be present in the final product. Always check the sugar content before buying to make sure it meets your needs.

Another thing to look for is the type of tea used. Many brands of Kombucha use black or green tea, but versions made with herbal teas can also be found. If you have a preference, look for a brand that uses the type of tea you like. You should also make sure the tea is organic, as Kombucha is made by fermenting tea.

Finally, pay attention to the flavor of the Kombucha. Most Kombucha brands add fruit juice or other flavors, while others keep it simple. As with MAI Kombucha, you can find many different flavors, including saffron, pineapple, ginger, and lemon. If you have a preference, look for a brand that offers you the flavor you like.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a unique and healthy drink, organic Kombucha is definitely worth trying. It has been around for centuries and continues to grow in popularity thanks to its many health benefits.

What is the difference between Pasteurized Kombucha and Unpasteurized Kombucha?
