ZERO SUGAR KOMBUCHA

Does Utonic Kombucha contain alcohol?
— Any fermented food or beverage contains a trace amount of alcohol which is produced during the fermentation process. However, our Kombucha’s amount is 0.5% which national standards declare as non-alcoholic. We ensure all our batches are vigorously tested to ensure it does not go over this amount.

What is the sugar content of Utonic Kombucha?— Our Kombucha contains zero sugar. Although it is listed as an ingredient it is only used during the fermentation process where the magic happens resulting in a zero sugar product. We understand the importance of low sugar drinks that’s why we created our Zero Sugar Kombucha.

How come my Utonic  Kombucha does not need to be refrigerated?
— Although our Kombucha tastes great cold and over a glass of ice, we are perfectly fine to be kept out of the fridge. With all that sugar brewed out of us, there is no risk of refermentation (or lids flying off). All our cultures are live and strong. We can last up to 12 months ambient and the team at UTONIC have tested this to prove it.

My Kombucha doesn’t seem to be as fizzy as others, is this right?
— Yes, 100% at Utonic we have not pumped our drinks with CO2 which is how others get that real fizz. Ours is naturally carbonated, therefore, less fizzy which lets you skull it down when you need to quench your thirst.

Can I drink Utonic Kombucha when pregnant or breastfeeding?
— Yep, absolutely. Consuming fermented products when pregnant or breastfeeding has been done for thousands of years and proven safe. If unsure please consult your health professional.

Can children drink Utonic Kombucha?
— Of course and we encourage this. We have a lot of parents that swear by our Kombucha for their kids. As it is zero sugar it is a great alternative to give to children instead of sugary soft drinks. Children enjoy the flavours we have created at Utonic too.

What does SCOBY stand for?
—SCOBY stands for; Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. This is what ferments the tea and changes it into Kombucha.
