Team of researchers from Singapore has created new gut friendly beverages. Probiotic coffee and tea, according to the scientist taste good, but even more importantly, can be stored for up to 14 weeks without losing any of its probiotic characteristic. Nutrients are added to probiotics, and then the beverage is left to naturally ferment for two days if it’s tea and one day for coffee beverage. The effect of caffeine, also important for our health, is still present, but the beverage also has high anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
- Antioxidants and anti inflammatory properties have been linked to the polyphenols in tea.
- One serving of probiotic tea and probiotic coffee usually will contains at least 1 billion units of live probiotics.
- More and more people are becoming aware of probiotics as the demand has increased by 75% in the United States.
“Rui said any kind of brewed tea can be used in this process, and throughout the fermentation process, the original flavor of the tea is still prominent.”
