Too good to be true?
on October 15, 2016
First, let me say, I am no booch guru but my favorite was at a local brewery in Asheville and it was downright amazing (probably full of alcohol as well!) The second fact I'd like to add is that I am a research junkie, always trying to cut through the ridiculous claims manufacturers make so I did my homework on this nifty gut juice as well. T
GT's brand got the highest marks for most-goodest taste, lowest sugar content (4 g for 16 oz),only 70 calories, 0 fat and loaded with B vitamins. The cost is better than most and because it's mainstream, easier to find. Each bottle is actually 2 servings so it's like eating half a donut. You could save the rest for later but you probably won't. Many brands have way too much sugar and have bubble-gum-flavored names that don't appeal to my caveman palette. GT's touts one (pause) billion, (not a scrawny million) organisms and it's fermented so helps to digest those non-food items we consume on a daily basis (think cheesey poofs and Twizzlers)
The nitty-not-so-gritty - The taste is somewhat indescribable and if I'd read the ingredients, I'd probably have set er' down quick and headed for the Snapple. However, I didn't - thinking leafy greens mike be the basis for it's clover-green appearance but alas, this is not the case. The ingredients: 100% organic raw kombucha, Klamath Mountain blue green algae (yummy, right?), spirulina, and chlorella. Aren't these the names for the wicked step sisters in Cinderella? Anyhoo, I love the taste of this stuff, slimy algae and all. It's tastes like a light refreshing tangy tea/beer-brew that is good for you. I keep it in the fresh and take a few swigs a day (totally into delayed-gratification) so I get a better cost-average and a happier tummy to boot.
