23 %, almost a quarter of Quebec's population, drink kombucha. What makes people try and love kombucha?
1. It has a particular taste that’s hyper addictive
Gutsy Kombucha has an incomparable taste! You probably remember the first time you tasted it!
The sparkling bubbles make it seem like you're drinking slightly bitter soda and the slight tangy flavour makes it resemble popular light beers.
It has a touch of sweetness that softens the taste at first, while providing a well-rounded flavour (although many enthusiasts will prefer the lower sugar kombuchas!)
2. It's full of probiotics and antioxidants
Kombucha is a drink that has been around for thousands of years. Its fermentation generates many probiotics. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially your digestive system. They are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut stay happy and healthy.
This drink also contains antioxidants from tea, the base of Kombucha. Kombucha actually contains all of the well-known health benefits of tea!
3. It is a lower calorie alternative to soda, beer, wine, etc
Here’s a little secret held by many kombucha lovers: if you have it on hand you can cut down on other high-calorie drinks.
Soda, beer, and wine are the number one source of added sugars in the North American diet.
The unique taste of kombucha makes it the natural choice to replace sweet drinks that we sometimes have trouble doing without. It can also form the basis of many cocktails or mocktails for boozy evenings.
If you want to reduce your calorie intake, kombucha is your friend!
