Kombucha (tea) is a fermented beverage made using yeast and bacteria (which forms the kombucha culture - often referred to as the "mushroom" or the "mother"). It has been all the rage on the internet for it's health benefits, but that has yet to be scientifically proven. Nevertheless, when I saw that GT's Enlightened Organic Raw Kombucha - Gingerade flavor provides only 30 calories and 2 grams of sugars per cup - well, needless to say I whipped the $3.69 out of my wallet pretty quickly ... did I hear someone whisper the saying, "a fool and his money are soon parted?"
Well, in this case, I think I came out a winner. The taste might take a little getting used to for some because it's like a tangy, carbonated beverage with a slight sting from the ginger. It's not sweet, but you won't miss that because there is so much more going on with the taste. This is the kind of drink that I prefer to take a sip of every few minutes, and not something I would guzzle an entire cup of all at once. That doesn't mean that I didn't like it - let's just say I preferred to savor it for a while.
As I mentioned before, GT's Enlightened Organic Raw Kombucha (Gingerade) provides 30 calories from 2 grams of sugars. There's also 25% of the daily value for folic acid and 20% of the DV for vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12. The ingredients are organic raw kombucha and fresh pressed ginger juice.
