10 Brilliant Health Benefits of Kombucha

3. It’s Alcoholic

If you’re familiar with the brewing processes of beer, wine, or spirits, you’ll know that fermentation means alcohol. This is because as the yeast organisms break down the sugar, they release two things: carbon dioxide and ethanol (aka: bubbles and booze.)

The level of alcohol is fairly low because the fermentation time isn’t that long and while commercially made kombucha beverages have found ways to reduce their alcohol content in order to comply with sales regulations, if you brew a batch at home there will definitely be some alcohol present. Something to keep in mind for pregnant or nursing mothers.
