When Should I drink kombucha?
The short answer is: Anytime you’re thirsty! Many of our drinkers say that MTO Kombucha (MTOK) is a great morning OR afternoon pick-me-up! If you’re trying to lose weight, try drinking a few ounces of MTOK before meals-you will feel fuller with less food.
How much should I drink?
We recommend that you start by drinking 2-3 ounces, 2-3 times a day for the first couple of days, then increase your consumption to about a pint (16 ounces) per day. Since MTOK is rich in probiotics we suggest you simply “listen to your body” to determine how much to drink. MTO drinkers feel more “balanced” and an improvement in overall health within 3-5 days.
Should I keep my MTOK cold?
Yes! Best enjoyed and served cold.
What is the shelf life?
MTOK has a shelf life of a minimum of 3 months when refrigerated. We provide a “best by” date on the bottle for your convenience.
Unlike other kombucha brands, or home brewers, we only do one fermentation process. We do not add any artificial ingredients or additional sugars, like juice, nor do we add a patented coagulant. Our kombucha is as raw as it gets. There is NO ADDED sugar. Unlike beer and wine, where in most cases yeast is doing the fermenting, kombucha fermentation is two-fold. First the yeast converts sugar into ethanol and carbon dioxide. Then the bacteria feed on the ethanol, converting it to healthy organic acids. The yeasts do not consume 100% of the sugar during this process.Why do some MTOK flavors have a ‘higher’ sugar content than others?
We know that certain flavors appear “high” in sugar content, but actually, if you compare a serving size of our organic kombucha to that of a serving size of fruit (i.e. grapes), you’ll find that it is 50% or more LESS grams of sugar/carb/calories. We only use ORGANIC, RAW, NON-GMO cane sugar. The word “sugar” is a bit scary to some people, but once they understand that it’s the same, if not better, than their typical snacks, they are more understanding.
