Hannah and Alex of Kombucha Kamp offer a journey beyond the myths as they explore and explain the large body of kombucha research generated over the last one hundred fifty years; from the first discovery of the culture and its constituents, to the interplay of the many processes involved in tea and sugar fermentation all the way through modern day in vitro and in vivo studies, including newly published papers. Kombucha?s anecdotal history as wellness tonic will be examined in light of the specific components present after fermentation, from acids to enzymes to polyphenols and more, a preview of their forthcoming book (Storey Publishing 2016). This extensive research is distilled into a lively conversation that also dispels common ?myth-understandings? and provides an insider?s look at this flexible, funky ferment that has captured so many imaginations and taste buds the world over!
