Poisonous scoby?


#1

If I fed Scoby poisonous flowers :hibiscus: or mushroom :mushroom: instead of tea leafs, would the microbial leather become poisonous if someone wears it?

Thatโ€™s a bit of a morbid question @amiridina :smiley: It would depend on if the poisonous compound specifically gets broken down by any organism in the scoby. I guess it could be the case for pollution that is generally also remediated with bacteria or fungi. Or if the poisonous compound is stable in the mixture with the specific conditios (eg. the acidic environment of the fermentation).
