Is there anything better than drinking cold lemonade on a sweltering day or after you've given it your all while exercising? Trend number 2 has always been there, but continues to develop and is now considered 'full'. There are now handmade syrups and ready-to-drink lemonades without added artificial colors and flavors. So trendy and healthy!
This alternative has been around for longer than today, but is being embraced by more and more people. And that's not surprising because this basically fermented tea is low in sugar, very tasty and a real thirst quencher. Kombucha is a source of antioxidants, healthy bacteria, enzymes and vitamins that can support the functioning of your body. However, this trend is also accompanied by a warning:
|Due to the somewhat higher acidity, it is advisable to drink a maximum of one 150 ml glass of kombucha. People with a sensitive stomach should be careful with this alternative. In addition, kombucha contains a very small percentage of alcohol (<0.5%) that is released by the fermentation of the sugar. So if you really don't want to consume any alcohol at all, leave the kombucha alone.
