Proven Perks of Kombucha

Kombucha has been the subject of various scientific studies, primarily focusing on its potential health benefits and microbial composition. Here are summaries of a few key studies:

  1. Health Benefits of Kombucha:
    • A study published in Food Microbiology in 2018 investigated the antioxidant properties of kombucha. Researchers found that kombucha fermentation enhances its antioxidant activity, potentially contributing to its reported health benefits, such as liver protection and immune system support (Villarreal-Soto et al., 2018).
  2. Microbial Composition:
    • Research published in Journal of Food Science in 2014 examined the microbial community of kombucha. The study identified various bacteria and yeasts involved in the fermentation process, highlighting the complex microbial interactions that contribute to kombucha’s unique flavour and potential health effects (Marsh et al., 2014).

These studies underscore kombucha’s potential as a functional beverage with antioxidant properties and a complex microbial profile aiding digestion and gut microbiome health.

Size variations explained:

Starter tea is the most important part of the process of making Kombucha. You always need a minimum of 10% starter tea for the total volume of Kombucha being made. We offer a range of brewing sizes which all come with the required amount of starter tea to successfully and safely make Kombucha at home. We also offer misfit organic Kombucha SCOBY. These are SCOBY that have not quite formed perfectly. The shape of the Scoby has no impact on the Kombucha brewed with it. We offer these SCOBY at a discounted price rather than let them go to waste.

6 Questions about Organic Kombucha Scoby

Please, log in to post a question

  1. rajenkins@mac.com says:

    Shouldn’t the initial water, tea, and sugar mix be cooled down before the SCOBY is added to not damage the Bacteria and Yeast? If so, is there an upper-temperature limit?

  2. Trish says:

    Hi, does it matter what type of tea I use? Does it need to be black tea, or can I make the kombucha with green tea, or rooibos tea, or nettle tea? Thanks

  3. Penny says:

    Hi, what volume of liquid should I add to get the misfit scoby going? Thanks

    1. Lisa Hillyer says:

      Hi, please see the instructions for Kombucha here: https://freshlyfermented.co.uk/instructions/kombucha-instructions/ You would need 900ml of water in total to add to the 100ml starter tea in the packet. Thanks Lisa.

  4. John says:

    After a brew, there is clear jelly in the kombucha. Is that new scoby forming? If so, can I use it to grow my scoby larger to brew more kombucha, or grow a new scoby so I can start a second brew?

    1. Lisa Hillyer says:

      Hi John, it is more than likely a new scoby forming yes. The starter tea is what you need to brew more Kombucha so when you make your next batch you could hold back 200ml rather than 100ml and make 2 batches of 1L Kombucha from that starter tea. Hope that helps. Thanks Lisa

  5. Suzanne Williams says:

    Can i store scoby if I don’t wasn’t to make more kombucha for a while

    1. Freshly Fermented says:

      Sure, if you cut off any airflow the SCOBY will go dormant. Make sure you have a little starter tea for it to sit in. This is referred to as a SCOBY Hotel. The starter tea is vinegar and will preserve the SCOBY for years 🙂

Starter kit

Kit arrived well packaged, had a few questions which were answered promptly by customer service. Completed my first brew with flavourings which are delicious if a bit too fizzy. So I know now not to leave the 2nd fermentation too long. Am about to start my 2nd brew. Think I’ll order a 2 litre SCOBY next.
