More on Kombucha tea

Here's a couple of month after my post on the potential health risk of Kombucha tea, Whole Foods decides to remove it from their shelf. The reason behind the decision seems to be the high content of alcohol, due to bacteria fermentation, misreported in the labels. I was happy to see that the potential risk of the beverage and the complete lack of any scientific evidence regarding the claimed benefits has been discussed lately around the web. You can find the detailed papers here, here and here.

I also found an interview to the responsible for the brand that was removed from Whole Foods stores.
