A 1927 German patent expressed theories of the healing properties of "KOMBUCHAL" and sought a method to deliver that benefit in a consistent healthy way. The Original KOMBUCHAL patent may be viewed online here.
They discovered that the wonderful healing properties of kombucha tea could be enhanced by simple vacuum distillation. A dehydration of the kombucha tea.
We create today, in our own lab, our own version of Kombuchal. Our Kombucha Tea CONCENTRATE is a dehydration of the kombucha tea. This is not a gross boiling of the kombucha tea to reduce it to a jelly-like mass. Rather we carefully ferment and age our organic kombucha tea to certain acidity and then engender a slow evaporation under low heat and low pressure protecting all the nutrients of the kombucha tea. Through temperature controlled vacuum distillation. Without additives or chemical stabilizers.
Our last lab analysis (by San Rafael Chemical Services, Inc) showed a superior concentration of 35.4 g/L acetic acid, 53.0 g/L gluconic acid, and 2.97 g/L 2-keto-Gluconic acid. Note: 2-keto-Gluconic acid has often been (mis) identified as Glucuronic Acid by others.The typical Kombucha tea in the Cornell Study had a tendency to produce 3.3% total acid, 0.7% acetic acid, 4.8% glucose, and 0.6% ethanol after a nine-day fermentation. (no lactic acid, gluconic acid about 1.4 g/L). The average pH was 2.5. This would indicate that our Kombucha Tea CONCENTRATE is over 50 Times more concentrated than the typical home kombucha fermented tea. Our Concentrate contains no Alcohol.
There are other Kombucha concentrates available in todays market. Like Magik Juice (TM) which advertises their concentrate for commercial Kombucha brewers. This allows Commercial "Kombucha Tea" to have a longer, more stable shelf life, a controlled taste and acidity, and to be alcohol free. And meet the requirements for "Live" "probiotic"
Their recipe is simple: mix their concentrate with 1 part real Kombucha Tea to 3 Parts infused water (sugar + tea), How much of their concentrate is needed is determined by the pH and acidity you require. Then add carbonation, and TADA ...
Our Pure Organic Kombucha Concentrate follows the Original German Kombuchal patent described above. This original version of the German patent recommended calcium to be added during the process. The intended purpose was not implicit for health, but was an attempt to improve the taste by neutralizing the acids. The taste , as is, is only semi-sour with a very light sweet taste. More recent research made by notable doctor Robert Barefoot recommended taking calcium along with Kombucha Tea. His studies indicated such a combination may resolve some 200 degenerative diseases. He recommended a high grade of marine Coral Calcium, which may be taken in extreme high doses without side effects We recommend Coral Calcium to be taken with any of our Kombucha Tea elixirs.
This magical elixir is created by the synergy of the Gluconobacter genus of acetobacter bacteria, (produces Acetic acid and Gluconic acid) and Lactobacillus (bacteria produces Lactic Acid) ) and yeasts; Saccharomyces Boulardii, Brettanomyces, and Torulaspora delbrueckii, and organic sugar and organic tea. Our concentrate is a 100% Pure Kombucha, Oak Barrel Aged and Charcoal filtered. Charcoal filtering removes the fusel oil (methanol) the moderately toxic and unpleasant-tasting compound found in all ferments. (though not in any dangerous levels).
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine this version of kombucha is very tonifying and is suited for those that are active. Spleen Qi Deficient types (pale tongue especially with teeth marks along the sides, loose stools or diarrhea, tendency to feel cold and chills may be suited when taken with a physical exercise program. It is also indicated for post-partum and recovery periods.
