Frequently Asked Questions
What is kombucha?
Kombucha is a fermented beverage brewed using tea, sugar and a kombucha culture - a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). The fermentation process transforms the sweet tea into a delicious and healthy beverage rich in beneficial acids, enzymes and probiotics. Kombucha will give a boost to your digestion, detoxification and immune system.
why is kombucha refrigerated?
Tofino Kombucha is raw, unfiltered, and alive with yeast and bacteria cultures. If left un-refrigerated, these cultures will continue to ferment the kombucha producing excess natural carbon dioxide gas, which may cause an overflow of bubbles when opening or create a broken seal and a leaky bottle.
What is floating in my bottle?
The floating blob in your bottle is a kombucha culture made of a celluose mass which naturally forms in the bottle. The kombucha culture is a sign of a raw, unfiltered, living kombucha.
how much can i drink?
Start slow with one bottle a day then drink as much as your body craves, but try to limit yourself to 3 litres a week. We do not recommend giving kombucha to children under the age of two.
How long will kombucha last?
Tofino Kombucha has a six month best before date. After six months, the kombucha gradually becomes more sour as the kombucha culture continues to slowly ferment in the refrigerated bottle.
