And they claim to be halal! There's a very small amount of alcohol in Yocha kombucha - only 0.2%. That's because any trace of alcohol that can be found in their kombucha is a result of natural fermentation. Similar to the way yoghurt, tempeh and kimchi are good to eat despite the fermentation process that occurs, kombucha could be good to consume!
