Nutritional values ​​of kombucha

The nutritional values ​​of kombucha can vary greatly from one brand of kombucha to another. The calories present in kombucha come from sugar that has remained unfermented, or that some manufacturers have added to make it have a sweeter flavor.

You should consume kombucha that is below 2 grams of carbohydrates per 100 ml. On the market you will find some kombuchas with up to 6 or 7 grams of carbohydrates per 100 ml, this is practically a traditional soft drink!

Mūn, the kombucha ally of intermittent fasting

There are many diets that people undertake to lose weight. Low-calorie diets , where there is a food restriction to consume fewer calories, can be effective in the short term to lose weight, but they can also lead the body to think that this is the state with which it will have to live and, faced with this, is in a state of constant saving.

The proposal that more and more specialists recommend is intermittent fasting, where you stop eating food outside of a specific time window. There are different types of intermittent fasting: 12 hours, 18 hours, alternate days... The problem comes in what can or cannot be consumed outside of this period in which the individual eats. Mūn Kombucha is an ideal option for this period between eating windows .

Glucose-Reducing Benefits of Kombucha: University of Sydney Study

At Mun Ferments, we know that kombucha consumption is more than a passing trend. This ancient drink, which has lasted for more than 2,000 years, offers direct benefits to its consumers. We started making it for health reasons and we are convinced of its contribution to daily well-being.

Several studies have shown that kombucha is beneficial for health, improving blood glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure readings. Recently, it published the first report on a controlled trial evaluating the effects of kombucha in humans .

The study, carried out by the Glycemic Index Research Service at the University of Sydney, involved 11 healthy adults in a randomized, placebo-controlled, crossover study. Glycemic index and insulin index responses were examined after a high-carbohydrate meal accompanied by different beverages, including kombucha.

The results showed that, while the consumption of soda water or unsweetened soft drink did not significantly affect blood glucose and insulin, kombucha considerably reduced these responses. Researchers suggest that polyphenols, organic acids and live microorganisms in kombucha, could be responsible for attenuating the glycemic response.

Diversity in Kombuchas: Not All Are Equal

We agree with the study's conclusion that the results cannot be applied to all kombuchas, as they vary depending on the tea used, the species of bacteria and yeast in the starter culture, and the specific fermentation conditions. At Mun Kombucha, we stand out for making our drink following the traditional method with real and organic ingredients, and with minimal residual sugar.
