Founded in Saint Petersburg, FL
Fermentaholics is a community of fermentation fanatics, working together to educate while also producing the highest quality products at an affordable price. We’re passionate about both the science behind and the flavors of fermentation–the way it transforms flavors and textures of salty cabbage into sauerkraut, transforms sweet tea into an effervescent tangy kombucha, milk fat into cheddar, grains into tempeh, soybeans into miso paste. As the oldest form of preservation, spreading across every culture in the world, there is so much to learn and so much respect to be had for the practice of fermentation. We have developed an insatiable appetite to learn, grow, and share as much as we possibly can.
We proudly produce USDA Organic and OU Kosher certified kombucha and Jun starter cultures. Our goal is to help our customers successfully begin their fermentation journey. Our high quality standards help us achieve that goal.
Meet Ruthie, founder of Fermentaholics.
Ruthie was gifted a SCOBY early in college and it was absolute SCOBY love at first sight (friends with benefits). A curiosity and love for fermentation flourished into what would become a long and fulfilling journey and career.
Fermentaholics manifested out of an idea to spread the love of fermentation, making cultures and supplies more readily and safely available. Ruthie’s heart and soul continues to pour into the business, striving, along with her hardworking team, to better achieve the company’s original goal of helping others succeed in their fermenting journeys.
Adapts to a variety of experimental tea blends!
Old SCOBYs do well in SCOBY hotels, too—as shown on youtube. But at the rate the specimens multiply, it’s easier for me to throw out shabby- looking specimens and keep the lively, thick and younger SCOBYs.
The kombucha was delicious and it created a new Scoby within a week.
Oh this worked out great!!
It made me feel like a genius!!!
Owners are amazing!
I would highly recommend buying this “mama”.
Great communication from the seller!
The SCOBY was of excellent size and in pristine condition for a starter.
