DRINKtech NEW ZEALAND COFFEE THE AUSSIE WAY 50 DRINKtech NEW ZEALAND SEPTEMBER 2017 Taiyo GmbH - a pioneer in the research and manufacture of functional ingredients for the food and beverage industries - says the coffee powder (WGCP) derived from raw coffee beans improves mental concentration for up to 6-8 hours, helps to reduce blood glucose levels and suppresses the appetite. It contains caffeine and a wide variety of other valuable coffee bean components, such as chlorogenic acids, antioxidants, minerals and dietary fibres. “This natural raw coffee bean ingredient delivers sustained caffeine release: whereas caffeinated beverages such as coffee or energy drinks often provide a short-term peak of heightened alertness, Taiyo offers a continuous supply of caffeine for a period of 6-8 hours — without the associated side-effects of jitters, a rapid heartbeat and the well-known ‘boom and bust’ phenomenon,” the company says. “Conventional energy drinks have often been criticised for their immediate caffeine boost and subsequent period of fatigue. Because of its sustained caffeine release, WGCP is suitable for ‘natural’ and ‘gentle’ energy products. And, as well as ‘concentration’ or ‘endurance and performance’ positionings, it can also be marketed as a weight management ingredient owing to its appetite suppressing effect.” The company says in benefitting from “excellent technological properties,” manufacturers can incorporate WGCP into a variety of food formulations such as breakfast cereals, oatmeal, granola bars and drinks, and dietary supplements such as protein powders, shots or capsules.

A ‘healthy choice’ coffee infused with glyconutrients has hit the shelves in Australia. GlycoCafe, termed the world’s “most complete coffee” by its manufacturer Mannatech, is vegan-friendly, gluten free, has no soy, dairy or MSG, no sweeteners or artificial flavours or colours. The company’s senior global wellness director and chairman of the Global Scientific Advisory Board Dr Steven Nugent says most coffee drinkers enjoy a morning cup for its caffeine benefits, but GlycoCafe includes the whole coffee fruit and is infused with glyconutrients – the core of Mannatech’s clinically-tested nutritional technology. “Most people turn to coffee to help them wake up,” he says.“Imagine if your coffee did more than that. We’ve included the whole coffee fruit as well as our exclusive Manapol aloe gel extract. For the first time in my career, I can recommend a truly healthy coffee. There is no other coffee in the world that can provide all that GlycoCafé can.” Mannatech’s Ambrotose powders have been clinically proven, when taken at the recommended amount of 4 grams per day, to positively impact attention in young adults, and improve memory and alertness in middle aged adults, Nugent says. Additionally, while most coffees on the market today only use roasted coffee beans, GlycoCafé coffee is crafted using a blend of organic Arabica beans, antioxidant-rich Coffeeberry brand coffee fruit and green coffee.
