GENERAL

Probiotics are made of good live bacteria and/or yeasts that naturally live in your body. Probiotic-supplements are a way to add good bacteria to your body. Learn more at clevelandclinic.org.

Probiotics help to balance the microbiome in your gut. A balanced microbiome is thought to be an important factor in many areas of health and is the focus of medical research worldwide. Scientists are actively studying the role the microbiome plays in diabetes, cancer, brain health and other chronic diseases.

KOMBUCHA

Kombucha is a fermented, effervescent, and lightly sweetened black or green tea drink commonly intended as a functional beverage for its health benefits.
“SCOBY” is actually an acronym: Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. A SCOBY is the living home for the bacteria and yeast that transform sweet tea into tangy, fizzy kombucha. The SCOBY seals off the fermenting kombucha from the air and protects it from outside, undesirable bacteria while it’s fermenting.
The Bu is raw and authentic, low in sugar, and has unique non-vinegary flavors. The Bu combines all of these appealing characteristics to create a healthy and delicious kombucha. Some other kombuchas are authentic but they add high-sugar fruit juice to hide their pungent taste. Other brands call themselves kombucha but pasteurize their product which kills the natural probiotics developed during fermentation.
The less acidic taste is the intended result of our unique culture. Using our proprietary Smooth Brew™ Method we have figured out the perfect ratio of all the elements that go into making kombucha so it’s less pungent, but still tangy, without a vinegar taste to overpower the flavor. The Bu Kombucha is effervescent and smooth, and pairs well with your favorite foods. The Bu Kombucha mixes and blends well to make custom drinks too.
1. Many people find that kombucha helps with digestion, boosts their immune system and gives them a powerful energy boost. This is thanks to the natural probiotics, vitamins, healthy organic acids, antioxidants and the polysaccharides that are a great source of natural energy.

2. Probiotics help to regulate overgrowth of bad bacteria and balance the microbiome in your gut. A balanced microbiome is thought to be an important factor in many areas of health and is the focus of medical research worldwide. Scientists are actively studying the role the microbiome plays in diabetes, cancer, brain health and other chronic diseases.

The Bu contains only 9g of sugar and 40 calories per can. Our goal is to deliver a beverage that supports a healthy lifestyle. We keep our sugar content low by not adding sweeteners and/or high-sugar fruit juices after fermentation.
The Bu Kombucha is low in sugar at only 9 grams per can. We’ve developed a special low-calorie blend of organic cane sugar and organic agave syrup to catalyze the fermentation and to minimize the sugar remaining after the fermentation process is complete.
Over 2 billion per can! It’s hard to imagine but in every sip, you are getting a dose of gut-healing, flavorful and organic cultures that deliver a full range of health benefits and a delicious refreshing treat too.
Everyone has a unique digestive system, therefore we suggest listening to your body when trying to determine the appropriate amount for you.
If kombucha is not kept refrigerated, a second fermentation may occur in the can. The product could become slightly more carbonated and its taste might evolve to become more acidic. Keep it cold and drink it cold!
