Lets talk about sugar!

What’s the sugar content in our Kombucha?

Being founded by an AfN Reg Nutritionist we understand the importance of providing a low sugar drink for all our boochertires to enjoy. Our kombucha is carefully brewed to maintain a low sugar content without compromising on taste.

You can indulge in our boochilicious kombucha without added sugars.

Sugar is an essential ingredient in the making of kombucha because it serves as the food source for the fermentation process.

Here's why sugar is incorporated in the production of kombucha:

Energy Source for Fermentation:

Kombucha is created through a fermentation process involving a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). The yeast consumes the sugar present in the sweetened tea and converts it into alcohol. The bacteria then convert the alcohol into organic acids, such as acetic acid and gluconic acid, giving kombucha its characteristic taste. In short, the sugar acts as an energy source for the microorganisms during this fermentation process.

Balanced Fermentation and Flavour Development

The amount of sugar used in kombucha recipes is carefully considered to create a balanced fermentation process. The sugar provides the necessary nutrients for the SCOBY to thrive and produce a well-rounded flavour profile. The microorganisms consume the sugar that is dissolved in the tea, resulting in a decrease in the sugar content of the final product.


It's worth noting that while sugar is used in the initial stages of the kombucha-making process, much of it is consumed by the microorganisms during fermentation. This leads to a decrease in the sugar content of the final product compared to the starting amount. The fermentation process reduces the sugar levels while developing the characteristic taste and beneficial properties of kombucha.

The sugar in our kombucha, is what is left over from the fermentation process NO sugar is added after this.

Remember, as a small family-run business, we prioritize quality, taste, and customer satisfaction. If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're here to help and provide you with the best kombucha experience possible.
