What is Kombucha?
For centuries, people around the world have enjoyed Kombucha. This tangy, fizzy fermented sweet tea traces back its long history to Asia and Europe. Rich in healthy probiotics, this tea-based drink has gained immense popularity with the health-conscious communities around the world and the Philippines.
At Happy Brew, we like to keep things honest and take pride in our traditional brewing methods.
First, a high-quality mix of black, green, and herbal teas is steeped in filtered water to reach the optimum flavors.
Thereafter, to our starter tea, we add cane sugar and our heirloom SCOBY to initiate the first fermentation process.
THE FERMENTATION PROCESS
In a nutshell, fermentation is the process where friendly bacteria work together in harmony with yeasts and beneficial enzymes, better known as probiotics.
This hungry community feeds on the cane sugar found in the sweet tea and turns it into delicious kombucha over time.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF KOMBUCHA TEA?
Traditionally brewed kombucha,
like other fermented foods, are rich in healthy acids and beneficial probiotics that your gut will love.
Furthermore, it is wholesome and completely natural. Not only it tastes awesome, but it is also a great way to give your body a healthy daily boost.
THE FEEL-GOOD FACTOR
Often the benefits of kombucha can be compared to more familiar fermented and probiotic-rich foods such as yogurt, cheese, kimchi, and even dark chocolate!
People who drink kombucha daily claim it gives them a natural energy boost that lasts throughout the day. It also potentially improved gut health and possibly reduce the risk of heart disease.
Lastly, and perhaps the most important thing to note, is that kombucha is naturally low in sugar. This means you can enjoy this delicious, probiotic-rich, and healthy soda guilt-free!
We hope you feel the same!
A HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE TO SODA
People have been enjoying kombucha as a healthy alternative to soda for decades. For those who are health-conscious and concerned about sugar, there is good news! The sugar that is used to brew kombucha tea is to feed the healthy probiotics, rather than for you! During the fermentation process of kombucha tea, the sugar is consumed by the active yeast.
Once the fermentation process is completed, usually after a period of up to 14 days, there are very few residual sugars left resulting in healthy beverages rich in beneficial probiotics.
