Kombucha is sometimes referred to as “kombucha mushroom.” It is a fermented drink made of bacteria, tea, yeast and sugar. Its resulting liquids contain vitamin B, vinegar and other chemical compounds. The kombucha tea may stimulate your immune system to improve your digestion. It can also prevent cancer and improve liver function.
Kombucha Culture, or SCOBY
The kombucha culture has the same look as a white or beige rubbery pancake. This is usually called SCOBY, which stands for symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts. The culture is placed in a green or sweetened black tea. This turns into a bowl full of sweet tea. It contains health-giving organic acids, vitamins, enzymes and minerals. When the culture has digested the sugar, it can produce various organic acids. The kombucha culture can become the biochemical powerhouse of your kitchen.
