UK Against Fluoridation

Should you worry about fluoride in your kombucha?.

Is there fluoride in your kombucha? Yes, but here's what you can do about it (and why you really don't need to worry).Is there fluoride in your kombucha? Yes, but here's what you can do about it (and why you really don't need to worry).1

In recent weeks, I’ve received a flurry of questions all asking the same thing, “I’ve read there’s fluoride in kombucha. Should I be worried?”

There certainly is fluoride in your kombucha, because there’s fluoride in your tea (there’s also fluoride in your wine and your black pepper). It’s difficult to say just how much fluoride is in your kombucha, because the quantity of fluoride in your brew depends heavily on the quality of your water, the quality of your tea, and other factors surrounding how you brew your kombucha, as you’ll read below.

Should you worry about fluoride in kombucha?

Fluoride that accumulates in tea (and, therefore, your kombucha) is calcium fluoride, a form that is different from the type of fluoride added to municipal water. While your body does need fluoride in small amounts, it is possible to consume too much and there have been cases of fluorosis occurring among people who drink excessive amounts of strong, cheap tea (read more here).

Fortunately, those cases are very rare and are easily mitigated by consuming modest to moderate amounts of high-quality tea and kombucha made from high-quality tea. Remember, further, that kombucha is made from weak tea, rather than strong, so there will be less fluoride in kombucha than a strong tea of the same volume, as explained in the Big Book of Kombucha...............

I've never heard of kombucha before.
