Black or green tea makes the fermented, sweetened beverage known as kombucha. It becomes a mild beverage with a 0.5% alcohol level by natural fermentation. Due to its numerous health advantages, including lowering the risk of heart disease and enhancing the growth of the intestinal microflora that permeates the body, kombucha can be eaten as a probiotic beverage.

Market Dynamic


Customers’ interest in and demand for beverages like kombucha have grown due to shifting consumer preferences toward functional beverages that can bring good health impacts. For instance, the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) reported that in the U.S. beverage industry as a whole, functional beverages held 76.4% of the market share in 2017.

Probiotic beverages are often created from fermented milk products like kefir and yogurt. This, however, has a significant advantage over other probiotic drinks in that it can be drunk by those with celiac disease and lactose intolerance because it is made by fermenting sweetened tea.


Because it poses a risk to the public’s health, numerous regulatory organizations have been closely regulating the alcohol content of various beverages. The high alcohol level, which may interfere with persons taking medication, is one of the major hazards. In addition, secondary fermentation may cause changes in the alcohol ratio when the beverage is transported from the factory to the merchant. In some cases, flavorings may have an impact on the beverage’s alcohol concentration as well.

Regulatory organizations implement rigorous regulations limiting the alcohol level of beverages to address these problems. For instance, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states that the alcohol concentration of a liquid cannot ever be higher than 0.5% alcohol by volume (ABV) during manufacture, at the time of consumption, or after consumption.


Consumers today are growing more adventurous and don’t hesitate to try out novel flavors. This has prompted manufacturers to add fresh flavors and ingredients to their products to attract customers. Hibiscus lime, lavender, blueberry, guava, and many other new tasty tastes are just a few of the appealing ones. Various spices, herbs, fruits, and juices are used to flavor kombucha.

For instance, Kombrewcha introduced two new varieties in the U.S. in July 2020: blood orange and mango pineapple. Additionally, due to the expanding mainstream trends of on-the-go convenience, people are enticed to buy them by the beverage’s availability in cans and bottles.
