Buy a safe SCOBY
Kombucha is wonderfully tasty and fun to make, but also not completely free of risk. In the 1990s, there were a few cases of acute poisoning from drinking kombucha, and findings of toxic bacteria such as Bacillus anthracis (anthrax) have also been reported. That is why you wantyour SCOBY from a reliable source. Our SCOBYs are tested and guaranteed pathogens free!
No two kombucha SCOBYs are alike, but the following microbes are found a lot. Yeasts: Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Torulaspora delbrueckii and Zygosaccharomyces bailii. You will also find various candida and aspergillus yeasts. Bacteria that are often found in kombucha are Bacterium xylinum, Bacterium gluconium and Acetobacter hetogenum.
The aroma is slightly yeasty and the taste is fresh, but becomes sharper with a longer fermentation time. Depending on the method of preparation, a mild fizz will created and in the distance you often taste some residual sweetness and some of the bitterness of the tea. The longer you let kombucha ferment, the more sugars are converted and the more acidic the result.
The variations are truly endless, both as a soft drink and as an ingredient in innovative culinary preparations.
