DIFFERENT TEMPERATURES SELECT DISTINCTIVE ACETIC ACID BACTERIA SPECIES AND PROMOTES ORGANIC ACIDS PRODUCTION DURING KOMBUCHA TEA FERMENTATION
By Francesca De Filippis, Antonio Dario Troise, Paola Vitaglione, Danilo Ercolini
Kombucha is a traditional beverage produced by tea fermentation, carried out by a symbiotic consortium of bacteria and yeasts. Acetic Acid Bacteria (AAB) usually dominate the bacterial community of Kombucha, driving the fermentative process. The consumption of this beverage was often associated ...

EVALUATION OF PHYSICOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES AND ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES OF KOMBUCHA "TEA FUNGUS" DURING EXTENDED PERIODS OF FERMENTATION
By Hashani Amarasinghe, Nimsha S Weerakkody, Viduranga Y Waisundara
Kombucha fermentation is traditionally carried out by inoculating a previously grown tea fungal mat into a freshly prepared tea broth and incubating under aerobic conditions for 7-10 days. In this study, four kombucha beverages were prepared by placing the tea fungal mats in sugared Sri Lankan ...

TITRATION AND HPLC CHARACTERIZATION OF KOMBUCHA FERMENTATION: A LABORATORY EXPERIMENT IN FOOD ANALYSIS
By Breanna Miranda, Nicole M. Lawton, Sean R. Tachibana, Natasja A. Swartz, W. Paige Hall
Quantification of the many constituents that make up our food, whether they are desirable (vitamins, antioxidants, nutrients) or undesirable (pesticides, toxins), is one of the most practical applications of chemistry. In this study, kombucha, a popular fermented tea beverage, was analyzed ...
