What is kombucha?

What does it mean to be certified Fairtrade?
We use only ethically sourced ingredients because we think everyone should be able to live a decent live and be fairly paid.
Is there any alcohol in Olden Kombucha?
Our kombucha may contain traces of alcohol, but no more than 0.5% by volume.
Is there a recommended daily intake, can you drink too much?
There is not a recommended limit, but some people react differently. Our kombucha is not high in acetic acid (vinegar taste), so it can generally be enjoyed at any time. Try half a cup first and wait if you are unsure. Kombucha will definitely get your digestive system ‘moving’.

We cannot legally answer this and it is best to talk to your doctor or health professional.
