Frequently Asked Questions

What is kombucha and how is Trubucha kombucha made?
Kombucha is a delicious probiotic drink. The health beverage, embraced by several health food stores, is something referred to as kombucha mushroom tea. However, kombucha is not a mushroom – it’s made from a colony of bacteria and yeast called SCOBY (stands for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast). 
ThuBucha kombucha is made by fermenting organic green tea and organic cane sugar with the culture for 10 to 14 days. During the fermentation the culture breaks down the sugar, turning sweet tea into a very beneficial for our health bubbly probiotic drink that also contains vinegar, vitamin B, enzymes and amino acids.

Why should I drink TruBucha Kombucha?
We have all heard, “You are what you eat,” but perhaps it should be, “You are what you digest.” Digestibility is a key to optimal nutrient absorption. In a world with food filled with high sugar and chemical additives, high stress, and prescription drugs people have decreased gut health. Bacteria lines your intestines and helps you to digest food. Raw kombucha is a superfood beverage that contains high quantities of probiotics (good bacteria) and antioxidants (molecules that prevent damage from toxins, chemicals, and carcinogens). It is an ancient elixir that is excellent support for health and well-being in our modern world. 
What is the recommended serving amount of kombucha?
Moderation is always key. Too much of a good thing can be bad, and everybody’s body is different. If you have never had kombucha, you should start with 4-6 oz per day. After a week you should know how the kombucha affects your body. Once you find yourself at 16-20 oz a day, you should go ahead and make that your limit. With this volume you’ll get all of the energy, detoxification, and nutritional benefits without the excess sugar. You should go ahead and make that your limit.

Can kids drink kombucha?
There are many different opinions, rather than one firm answer to this question. It would be the best to consult a health practitioner, who is familiar with kombucha, about giving it to your kids.

Is there any sugar remaining after the fermentation?
Kombucha is made from sucrose a disaccharide (2 sugars linked together). During fermentation, sucrose is broken down into two single sugars, fructose and glucose. Both of these sugars are what our body uses for energy and can be immediately absorbed into our cells with no further breakdown needed. There is some remaining sucrose, but mostly glucose and fructose. Every 8 oz glass has approximately 8-10 grams.  

What ingredients do you add after the fermentation?
The good news, we do not add any sugar after the fermentation. For flavoring we use fresh and dried mixes of herbs, spices, and also sliced or pureed fruits and vegetables.

How is TruBucha kombucha different from other kombucha drinks?
Our kombucha is made using as many organic ingredients as possible, and many of them are locally sourced. We use stainless steel tanks imported from Italy to ferment and store it in stainless steel kegs. Our tea never touches plastic, this guarantees that it is free from estrogen-like chemicals leaking from the plastic. We produce clean tea that quenches your thirst for yumminess and optimum health. 

Does kombucha contain any alcohol or caffeine?
TruBucha Kombucha is a non-alcoholic beverage. Kombucha's trace amounts of alcohol are comparable to a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice or a ripe banana. Put THAT in your smoothie and drink it. Plus, the culture “digests” most of the caffeine presented in organic green tea that we use. There is a minimum amount still remaining in it, but most caffeine sensitive people, including children, are not able to detect any effects.

Will kombucha lose its carbonation? Why is it sold in 64 ounce or less containers?
As any carbonated liquid, when the bottle with kombucha is opened for a while it will lose its effervescence.This doesn't mean that the kombucha has "gone bad." Please put cap back on after pouring and put back in the refrigerator to keep its freshness and carbonation. 
If you want more fizz in your kombucha, you can leave a closed bottle at the room temperature for a few hours, so the culture that is living in the bottle becomes activated and will produce more carbon dioxide. Trubucha is sold in 64 ounces or less containers, so it should sustain its carbonation as you go through the bottle.  

How long will my TruBucha stay fresh? 
Kombucha has a very low PH that prevents harmful microorganisms contaminating the brew, however the longer kombucha ferments, the more vinegary and sour it turns,especially if it is left for too long in a warm environment. If you suspect that your kombucha has been exposed to higher temperatures, we don’t advise you to drink it. It must be kept refrigerated. 
Most kombucha will be good for more than 90 days, but may still ferment as time goes on and do to it change the taste. Our company tries to bring Trubucha to you as fresh as it can be, so we recommend drinking it in the first 30 days. 

What about people with food intolerance's and allergies? 
TruBucha is gluten free, dairy free, nut free, and vegan. 

Is TruBucha raw?
We don’t pasteurize our kombucha. Trubucha is a raw drink with live probiotics. 

TruBucha is only sold on-draft through the use of refillable bottles, keeping single use bottles out of landfills and recycling plants.
