Yes, sugar is necessary in kombucha because it feeds the S.C.O.B.Y. during fermentation. KÖE also contains real fruit juice and a bit of organic stevia and erythritol, resulting in refreshing flavor with just 35 calories per 12 oz. can.

Does KÖE contain S.C.O.B.Y.?

Yes, we use a S.C.O.B.Y. in the fermentation process. S.C.O.B.Y. stands for “symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast” and when combined with sugar, it causes the fermentation that creates the organic acids and probiotics you find in KÖE. Before canning, we filter out any small pieces of S.C.O.B.Y. for a clean tasting experience.
