What is Kombucha

Kombucha  is a popular and  fizzy drink , made through a fermentation process using tea, water, sugar, and a symbiotic colony of good bacteria and yeasts called a SCOBY. This results in a slightly sweet and tart beverage that is delicious to drink.

Kombucha Na Dálaigh contains very low levels of sugar, less than 4%, and is rich in beneficial microbes that can support gut health and the body's digestive and immune systems.

At Kombucha Na Dálaigh, we prioritise using mostly organic ingredients and avoid artificial sweeteners, making it a gut-friendly option. This ancient beverage has been enjoyed for thousands of years across different cultures for its health-promoting qualities.

Kombucha is made by brewing tea, adding sugar, introducing the SCOBY, and allowing the fermentation process to occur. This process converts the sugar into organic acids, carbon dioxide, resulting in the tangy flavour and natural fizziness of kombucha.

Our kombucha contains live and active cultures, including beneficial bacteria, yeasts, and enzymes, making it a probiotic drink that supports gut health and digestion. It also offers potential health benefits such as antioxidants, detoxification support, immune support, and energy and mood boost.

Our kombucha is raw and unpasteurized, preserving the live cultures and beneficial compounds. It should be stored in the refrigerator to maintain its quality and flavour.

We never use artificial sweeteners in our kombucha, as the sugar is essential for the fermentation process. The caffeine content in kombucha is similar to a cup of decaf coffee.

Kombucha Na Dálaigh is 100% authentic, as it allows the formation of a healthy bacterial cellulose film and yeast sediment. It differs from mass-produced kombuchas found in supermarkets, which are often filtered, pasteurised, and may contain added sweeteners.

Enjoy Kombucha Na Dálaigh chilled before breakfast, during exercise, as a pick-me-up, or as a refreshing alternative to alcoholic beverages. It can also be used as a mixer, in sorbets, fruit salads, and even for pickling and drizzling over salads
