kirbz Posted September 14, 2017 Share Posted September 14, 2017 So, I understand there was recently a rule change that says that coconut aminos are an exception to the "no added sugar" rule. The logic that was included in publication of the new rule said "So technically, all aminos are derived from a sugar source—but not all labels are clear about that. Which means that according to the current rules, some brands of aminos are out, while some are allowed, based solely on the way the companies chose to write the ingredients on the label." My question is this: why wasn't kombucha also included as an exception to the "no sugar added" rule? Is the logic not the same exact thing for kombucha? Again from the Whole30 website, the logic said "ALL kombucha uses sugar in the fermentation process. But some brands are transparent about that, and others are not." So why only make an exception for coconut aminos and not for kombucha? Really, both use sugar in the process to make the product, but the final product doesn't really yield any added sugar for either, yet some companies list it and other do not... Thanks in advance for your support! I like things to make sense and this one has been niggling in my mind for a while... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
