Junboocha - The Champagne of Kombuchas
Junboocha is the Champagne of Kombuchas. It is a fermented tea. However, it is made with green tea and honey; not tea and sugar unlike kombucha. As it is made with honey instead of sugar, junboocha has a lighter and slightly sweeter taste compared to kombucha, which has a more sour and vinegar-like flavour. Some people may prefer the taste of one over the other.
Like kombucha, junboocha is believed to have various health benefits such as improved digestion, immune system support, and increased energy levels. However, more research is needed to fully understand the potential health effects of junboocha.
Honey is considered a prebiotic because it contains oligosaccharides, which are a type of carbohydrate that are not digested in the small intestine but instead reach the large intestine where they act as food for beneficial bacteria. Oligosaccharides in honey are a type of fructooligosaccharides (FOS), which are a subclass of prebiotics that specifically promote the growth of bifidobacteria in the gut. Bifidobacteria are considered beneficial because they can help to break down complex carbohydrates, produce vitamins, and strengthen the immune system. Honey also contains other compounds such as polyphenols and organic acids that have been shown to have prebiotic effects by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
Both junboocha and kombucha have potential health benefits as fermented teas, and which one is "better" depends on individual preferences and health goals.
In terms of health benefits, both junboocha and kombucha contain beneficial organic acids, enzymes, and probiotics produced during the fermentation process. Both have been linked to improved digestion, immune system support, and increased energy levels. However, there is limited scientific evidence to support many of these claims, and more research is needed to fully understand the potential health effects of these fermented teas.
