For fermentation, the culture needs the right sugar, i.e. sucrose. Giving only dextrose (glucose) or fruit sugar (fructose) would also lead to an imbalance in the bacteria and yeasts. Xylitol and other sugar alcohols must not be used. It would be the same as if you were put on a zero diet. You might be able to endure it for a few days. But after that you keep losing weight. It is the same with kombucha. It needs real sugar in the form of white table sugar, raw cane sugar, whole cane sugar or honey.
