What are these floaties in Remedy Kombucha?
First up, don’t be alarmed, the floaties you’ve found are completely safe to consume.
Remedy nutritionist Jacqueline Alwill explains that it’s completely normal to find pieces of the SCOBY which stands for Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast, in your Remedy organic Kombucha and that it’s a good sign that your kombucha drink is raw, real, alive and kicking!
These little bits of SCOBY (also known as The Mother) are condensed forms of the live cultures found in our zero sugar Kombucha. They are the thing that makes Remedy Kombucha so good for you. These tiny SCOBY pieces are perfectly healthy to consume but if the texture ain’t your thing feel free to filter them out.
If you had a kombucha (other than Remedy!) and didn’t see these little SCOBYs hanging around, it could be a sign that the brew was not raw and pure. It could also mean that the kombucha tea was watered down with carbonation or pasteurized to kill the good bacteria.
The next time you see a little Mother in your Remedy, remember that it’s part of a living tea and a sign of a healthy brew! These SCOBY pieces were ferment to be!
