Having tried some of Hip Pop's Ginger & Yuzu kombucha this weekend I can thoroughly recommend it!
WHAT IS KOMBUCHA?
It’s raw fermented tea, made from 4 simple ingredients: tea, sugar, live kombucha culture and water.
Why drink Kombucha?
Does it contain sugar? Yes it does. Sugar is essential to a proper fermentation. Sugar feeds the yeast and bacteria. Residual sugar is broken down during fermentation so it’s much easier for the body to process. Hip Pop Kombucha contains between 2.5g and 3.3g of sugar per 100ml, compared to 8g in a glass of orange juice
Why don’t you use sweeteners?For a start, sweeteners cannot be used in a real kombucha fermentation. Microbes do not eat sweeteners. We use only natural ingredients in our kombucha. And whilst sweeteners might sound good on paper, there is some evidence to suggest that sweeteners may have a negative effect on the way our body deals with normal sugar, leading to an increase in blood sugars and weight gain
It’s a health drink, an adventurous soft drink, an alternative to alcohol, a brilliant mixer and it’s great for kids too
What are the health benefits?
It naturally contains lots of good stuff including friendly bacteria, antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins B and C and healthy organic acids
Why Hip Pop Kombucha?
It’s organic, vegan and never ever made with ultra processed sweeteners
