Is Kombucha Supposed to Be Fizzy?

  • 2 min read


Kombucha, the fermented beverage that has won the hearts of many wellness enthusiasts, raises numerous questions, particularly regarding its fizzy nature. Is it supposed to be carbonated? To answer this question, let's dive into the fascinating world of kombucha and discover how this characteristic not only affects its taste but also its brewing process.


What is Kombucha?

Kombucha is an ancient beverage originating from Asia, made by fermenting sweetened tea with a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast, commonly known as SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast). This fermentation creates a drink rich in organic acids, enzymes, B vitamins, and a variety of probiotics beneficial for digestive and overall health.


The Carbonation of Kombucha

The natural fizziness of kombucha is a direct result of its fermentation process. As the SCOBY consumes the sugar in the tea, it produces not only acids and alcohols but also carbon dioxide (CO2), giving the drink its characteristic effervescence. This effervescence can vary from one batch to another, influenced by factors such as fermentation duration, ambient temperature, and the initial sugar content.


The Benefits of Kombucha

Beyond its unique taste and slight fizziness, kombucha is valued for its numerous health benefits. It's known for improving digestion due to its probiotic richness, boosting the immune system, increasing energy, and even aiding liver detoxification.


Fizzy vs. Non-Fizzy Kombucha

While most commercial kombuchas are slightly fizzy, not all kombuchas are. Carbonation can be controlled and even minimized, depending on the fermentation and bottling process. Some producers choose to reduce carbonation for those who prefer a less effervescent drink.
