Description of Kombucha

Kombucha is a carbonated tea-based beverage that many drink for its health benefits or medicinal purposes. There is scientific information supporting health benefits but unfortunately few studies are being conducted mainly due to the expense of such medical studies. There are many centuries of anecdotal accounts supporting health benefits attributed to the tea. Kombucha is available in stores but can easily be made at home by fermenting tea using a spongy mass of yeast and bacteria often nicknamed a SCOBY. This produces the kombucha culture which is also often popularly referred to as the "mushroom" but it is not a true mushroom. It forms on the surface of the fermenting tea while the tea is fermenting and resembles a whitish colored pancake.

Should I be worried about the safety of Kombucha?

Most ask this question because are aware that some fungi are poisonous or they have been told misinformation about Kombucha. Kombucha is not a mushroom and it is not poisonous. It is only "popularly" called a mushroom.

Kombucha has been used as a health remedy for thousands of years it is now being widely sold in health food in the USA, far less expensive to make it yourself.

Kombucha Tea is not a drug. The FDA has stated that Kombucha Tea to be a safe beverage if it is prepared properly in a clean way so as not to be contaminated by common food pathogens. All foods that you prepare can become contaminated but the risk is probably less so for Kombucha because it is a fermented beverage which as it ferments it makes a small amount of alcohol helping to protect it.

No one has ever died from drinking correctly prepared Kombucha Tea and yet millions of people daily drink this remarkable beverage and have done so for over 2000 years. It is safer than aspirin. There are 1000 aspirin related aspirin deaths yearly.

Kombucha Tea is a fermented drink and , but then again some few people may be sensitive to any number of different things. An allergic is usually just a minor skin blush or itch.

The tea is acidic but no more so than wine, orange juice, or grapefruit juice, unless it is allowed to ferment too long in which case it becomes more sour. Drinking Kombucha Tea cannot change the pH level of your blood unless you drink huge quantities of the tea when it is sour, this would not be a smart thing to do, drinking huge amounts of anything is hardly a smart thing to do.

A Kombucha mushroom may develop a mold but this is not likely. Most common such molds are not harmful but they can ruin the taste of the tea. This minor problem can be easily prevented by keeping the fermenting tea properly covered and if it should occur is easily detected and you simple make a new batch of tea."]
