What is Kombucha?
Kombucha tea (or simply kombucha) is, like beer, cider or wine, a fermented beverage. But compared to beer, cider or wine, kombucha (and water kefir for that matter) contains almost no alcohol and – kombucha is a truly probiotic beverage. Probiotic means that the final kombucha product contains millions of live microorganisms and derived microorganismal byproducts, most namely vitamins, amino acids, enzymes and organic acids, offering a myriad of “probiotic” health benefits. Because kombucha is made by fermenting natural tea leaves, which are naturally rich in caffeine, kombucha is a naturally caffeinated and slightly carbonated energizing drink.
What is Water Kefir?
Water kefir is the lighter, probiotic cousin of dairy kefir. Instead of milk, water kefir is made by fermenting cane sugar and certain fruits, to create a delicious, light, naturally sparkling probiotic beverage. Instead of fermenting the lactose sugar found in milk, the water kefir cultures ferment the cane sugar and the sugars found in fruits into lactic acid and other health beneficial organic acids.
Why pure pressed organic fruit juices?
To give a good answer to this question, it is a good idea to have a look at the science. To begin with. While one can’t tell a difference when looking at an apple grown organically or grown conventionally, i.e. with the use of synthetic pesticides or herbicides, things become quite different when doing a bit of chemical analysis. Several scientific studies clearly indicate significant differences between conventional food and organic food products. Differences which turn out to be in favor of organic food, especially with respect to levels of certain health beneficial phyto-compounds and levels of pesticide, herbicide and heavy metals residues.
