Why do people waste their time making Kombucha instead of making multiple "Mothers/SCOBY" and simply eating that?

As far as I can tell, nobody has ever been able to demonstrate any sort of danger in eating the SCOBY/mother/slimy-pancake thing floating inside the jar. Surely eating the SCOBY itself provides more probiotics than the water the probiotics are floating around in.

Of course there's no danger, it's food. But is there benefit beyond that obtained by consuming the kombucha? Nope. 

It's like eating the cow when you could drink its milk instead.

I eat apple cider vinegar scoby. It is all bacteria, no yeast, so better. It tastes like vinegar. If you wash it, it is tasteless. I agree that eating scoby is more efficient, and even more efficient if you eat it with an apple or other good-fermenting food.
