All you’ve ever wanted to know about Kombucha… clearly.
A fermented tea-based beverage, with deep roots in the cultures of Central Asia and the Far East.
HOW DO YOU SAY IT?
DO YOU USE KOMBUCHA CONCENTRATE?
Every kombucha maker has to choose between good and evil: either ferment its own tea with sugar and culture, or purchase something called “kombucha concentrate.” You wouldn’t want the concentrate and neither did we. Clearly Kombucha is a force for good.
WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH SUGAR?
Sugar shows up on the Clearly Kombucha label, but its primary role in our brewing process is to provide energy for fermentation. For flavors other than Original, there’s a smidge more added for taste as indicated on the nutrition fact panel.
OK ON SUGAR; WHAT ABOUT ALCOHOL?
Fermentation of Clearly Kombucha creates a trace amount of alcohol. It’s less than one-half of one percent.
OK ON ALCOHOL; WHAT ABOUT CAFFEINE?
Some but not a lot. Our process starts with high quality brewed tea but fermentation knocks down a portion of the tea caffeine as it is transformed by brewing. Depending on the batch, bottled Clearly Kombucha contains caffeine levels a lot less than a similar amount of brewed tea, and a little more than decaf coffee. We do not add caffeine. If we could figure out where the energy from drinking Clearly Kombucha comes from, we’d bottle it. Oh wait, we already did.
WHY NO FLOATIES? AM I MISSING SOMETHING?
We’ll admit it: we think junk floating around in a beverage is not cool. We don’t think you’re missing a thing!
ARE THERE VITAMINS AND MINERALS IN CLEARLY KOMBUCHA?
There’s research showing trace amounts of vitamins and minerals created during kombucha fermentation. Because kombucha is fermented, each batch is a little different. Likewise, our calorie and nutritional content info may vary a tiny bit from batch to batch. Non-trace amounts of vitamin C listed on the nutrient content panel originate from our terrific flavorings. We didn’t think you would want us to separately add vitamins just for the sake of counting them, so we don’t.
WHY NOTHING HERE ABOUT CURING DISEASES AND ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?
We decided to treat our customers like adults: no silly claims that we couldn’t support. We didn’t feel it was right to insult your intelligence. If you feel terrific drinking Clearly Kombucha, we’ve done the only job we’ve ever set out to do.
