* Kombucha is a fermented tea drink with naturally probiotic properties produced by a SCOBY; a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast that feeds from sugar added to tea. SCOBY mothers produce baby SCOBYs that can be removed and used in future brews.
* Spirulina is a blue-green algae existing on the planet for over three billion years. Both NASA and the European Space Agency proposed Spirulina as a main food to be used during long-term space missions.
