Survey participants needed for kombucha study

Do you make kombucha at home, or are you interested in learning how to make the beverage?

Researchers at the University of Maine are seeking Maine residents who are at least 18 years old and want to ferment their own kombucha. Kombucha-makers and those interested in the fermented beverage made with tea will be asked to answer questions and watch a short video about safely making the drink.

The study’s principal investigator is Jacob Rich, a graduate student in food science and human nutrition, who is working under the direction of Mary Ellen Camire, a professor in the UMaine School of Food and Agriculture.

The 35-minute research survey is available online.
