Kerith Posted August 21, 2013 Share Posted August 21, 2013 Hi Everyone! I saw on the master listing that we *could* have GT's Kombucha, but looking at the flavors that I used to have such as the passionberry, guava, etc. I wasn't sure if it was allowed, seeing that it has residual sugar in it and being unsure of whether this was added after the fact. So, I emailed GT's Kombucha and here is the response I got: Hello, Kerith :-) Thanks for your reaching out with your inquiry! As you may already know, the main ingredient in all of our products is made with organic black tea, organic green tea, organic evaporated cane juice and a Kombucha culture (also known as a "mushroom" or SCOBY = symbiotic colony of beneficial bacteria and yeast). The living organism breaks down and converts the sugar and caffeine for 30 days (which is essentially a fermentation process), cultivating an elixir naturally rich in probiotics, organic acids, essential enzymes and other nutrients. The finished product is tangy, tart, slightly effervescent, low in residual sugar (2 grams per 8-ounce serving) and residual caffeine (between 8 milligrams and 14 milligrams per serving). We never add more sugar or any other sweetener after cultivation for flavor, only organic unsweetened ingredients. Hope this information helps! Peace & blessings, Karla First, what a sweet response. Second, can I get a heck yes it's allowed for Whole30, or a no, no, no steer clear? I wasn't sure because an initial ingredient is evaporated cane sugar. I'm hoping it would help with some, um, GI stuff! Thanks, friends. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
