Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha is a healthy probiotic drink made mainly from tea, sugar, and SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast) upon fermentation of 1-2 weeks.
WHAT DOES KOMBUCHA TASTE LIKE?
It is naturally bubbly, deliciously sweet, and tart.
WHY DRINK Wonderbrew?
Wonderbrew is freshly made locally in Malaysia, infused with fresh fruits, superfoods, and herbs satisfying both your taste buds and your gut! Over 95% of ingredients are organic, and we strive to support local farms and businesses. And, of course, Wonderbrew is raw and free of preservatives!
WHERE CAN YOU FIND Wonderbrew?
You can find our goodies at all Ben Grocers and selected Village Grocer.
HOW MUCH IS ONE BOTTLE OF Wonderbrew?
The prices might vary in different outlets, but their retail price is around RM 12.90 per bottle.
HOW LONG DOES Wonderbrew LAST? WILL IT GO BAD?
You can keep them for up to 8 weeks in the fridge. Wonderbrew is raw (unpasteurized), so the fermentation continues. Keeping them in the refrigerator will keep the fermentation to a minimal level, preserving the taste. Wonderbrew will not go bad even after the recommended 8 weeks, but it might taste too vinegary for pleasant consumption.
HOW LONG CAN I KEEP IT UNREFRIGERATED FOR?
Kombucha won’t go bad unrefrigerated, but since it will continue to ferment at room temperature, the taste might change over time. We generally recommend you to put them in the fridge once you have access to one - but it is ok to leave them at room temperature for half a day.
HOW TO RETURN THE BOTTLES FOR RECYCLING?
You can return the bottles back to most of our distributors. Just ask them!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DRINK Wonderbrew?
We recommend 1 bottle a day, but everyone’s body is different - if you are new to the drink, try half a bottle first and see if your gut reacts well to it.
THERE ARE WEIRD LOOKING THINGS IN THE KOMBUCHA - IS IT SAFE TO CONSUME?
Brown strands are yeast strands that are good for you! Sometimes you might find a clear slimy piece of SCOBY (Symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) in your drink, and they are safe to consume!
IS THERE ALCOHOL IN Kombucha?
Since kombucha is fermented, there is less than 0.5% alcohol content in the drink. Young children, pregnant women, and alcohol intolerant individuals should take this into consideration.
IS THERE CAFFEINE IN Kombucha?
There is caffeine in our kombucha because they are made from teas. However, the caffeine content is much lower than a regular cup of tea. You can also pick a green tea brew if you are concerned about consuming caffeine.
WHICH FLAVOR SHOULD I PICK? DO THEY HAVE DIFFERENT FUNCTIONS?
They actually have similar health benefits. Just choose the flavor you like most - follow your heart, follow your gut!
