My philosophy is if it grows on a tree and is in it's natural form, it's probably ok. If I get hung up on the minutia, it drives me crazy. Could a paleo person have eaten an apple? Would they? Good enough. That being said I prefer the tarter... (more)

You're not alone! For me it wasn't kombucha, it was chia seed pudding. While my reaction wasn't quite as strong as yours (thankfully), the general outline was the same. FYI: I've learned that I don't tolerate sesame seeds very well either.
