Does Kombucha Contain Alcohol?

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

 

I'd like to know what is the alcohol content of kombucha drink (made with 'tea mushroom')? Is it appropriate to drink it if one has taken the Genyen vow of not taking alcohol etc.?

 

Thank you. :)

"Is the alcohol in Kombucha a potential problem?

We have no experience or observations in regard to alcohol. It is known that Kombucha tea has about 0.5% to 1% alcohol as do some fruit juices such as apple juice. Harold Tietze in his book KOMBUCHA, THE MIRACLE FUNGUS observes that Muslims and Buddhists drink it without concern. "Recovered alcoholics do not have to fear the small amounts of alcohol." The Salvation Army is using Kombucha to help alcoholics."

 

If home made and left to fermentate too long, it could rise up to 1.5° or even a bit upper. So, one has to be careful with the vow of not taking alcohol...

 

Thank you
