What is NYCHA?
The natural fermentation with a probiotic Kombucha culture creates healthy enzymes, organic acids and microbes, which can have a positive effect on your well being and your digestion. The health benefits of Kombucha are comparable to the benefits from other fermented foods such as buttermilk, sauerkraut, sour dough, and yogurt. Other Kombucha brands on the Swiss market pasteurize their beverage. Pasteurization kills the microorganism and may destroy the enzymes and thereby the Kombucha loses some of its major health benefits. We at NYCHA Kombucha do not pasteurize our Kombucha but instead use highest standards of hygiene and multiple lab tests during the production process. Fermented foods were once a big staple of the human diet. We at NYCHA would like to help bring back fermented foods into people's everyday life.
Furthermore, NYCHA Kombucha is rich in antioxidants from the green tea, low in calories and sugar compared to other soft drinks, and full of other healthy, high-quality ingredients such as ginger, mountain herbs, and quince.
