GLC1968 Posted October 24, 2012 Share Posted October 24, 2012 I have a question and this is something that has been bouncing around in my brain ever since learning about the Whole30 concept. I've tried to do a search, but I cannot find these two things discussed in conjunction anywhere on this forum. I know that bacon cured with any type of sugar is expressly forbidden during a Whole30. But, as home makers of bacon know, the sugar is basically 'washed' off before it is complete. Packaged bacon lists zero grams of sugar per serving. Kombucha is also made with sugar but from what I can find, it is OK on a Whole30. Why is that? Yes, the scooby eats the sugar, but unless you are happily drinking vinegar, there is still *some* traces left in the drink. And even though the store bought ones list zero grams of sugar, some form of it clearly went into making the drink, not unlike bacon. How are these two things different? (if someone tells me that Kombucha is NOT allowed on a Whole30, then my question is moot, of course) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
