What's the deal with sugar in kombucha?

We all know sugar sucks, right? In case you missed the memo, scientists, doctors and all other health professionals alike are in agreement that too much sugar in our diets is the culprit behind a whole host of problems when it comes to your health and wellbeing.

We're talking really basic and fairly immediate affects like weight gain through to major risks relating to diabetes and heart disease. Just recently, new research and modelling showed that cutting down sugar in soft drinks alone in Australia would save 155,000 lives and $8 billion!

So what's the deal with sugar in kombucha? As you may know, sugar is one of the initial ingredients that goes into making kombucha, however the beauty of the live cultures in real kombucha is that they eat up all the sugar during the natural fermentation process. BUT, not all kombuchas are created equal.
