Safety and food purity requirements lead Kombucha Tea Company to choose Glasslined Technologies, Inc. for processing equipment.
Kombucha tea is a fermented drink made with tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast. Although it’s sometimes referred to as kombucha mushroom tea, kombucha is not a mushroom — it’s a colony of bacteria and yeast. Kombucha tea is made by adding the colony to sugar and tea, and allowing the mix to ferment. The resulting liquid contains vinegar, B vitamins and a number of other chemical compounds. “
The production requires a non-porous, non-ferrous material that will not interfere with the fermentation process or leaching of metal or plastic into the tea.
“We chose to use glasslined tanks for our fermenters to insure the safety and purity of our product. It took me months to locate a dealer for a storage tank until I found Glasslined Technologies and was able to arrange a tank to my specification in a timely manner and at a very competitive price. ” says Trenton Kaminski, President and Founder of Kombucha Tea Company.
Proponents claim kombucha tea can stimulate the immune system, prevent cancer, and improve digestion and liver function. However, there’s no scientific evidence to support these health claims.
