Has anyone come across data on the make-up of the actual kombucha scoby? I know people have come up with interesting ways to eat them. But what are you actually eating?
Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, but this may help:
I've been searching around a bit... all I can find is that the SCOBY contains the same acidic by-products of the kombucha (dependant on the specific bacteria & yeast present) and is a pretty good source of cellulose.
Perhaps this ebook is a good place to start...
I can't recommend this resource more highly for kombucha growing. It gives specific, step by step instructions for brewing your own kombucha plus recipes. It's a science akin to brewing beer. I've been brewing my own kombucha for 2 years now and that book taught me everything I know. Delicious! http://www.culturesforhealth.com/free-kombucha-ebook
Also gives recipes for SCOBY consumption. Personally (from n=1), my stomach reports immediately that SCOBY's are not okay to eat ;-)
A bit late to be answering but besides nutrition if you have any extra scobies blend them up until smooth with a bit of water and use like an enzyme peel on your face. Apply and leave until dry, you will have such amazing smooth skin.
