Welcome to KefirCoffee, 100% Natural and Committed to Sustainability: At KefirCoffee, we believe in the power of responsible business practices. We understand that every step of the process, from sourcing our ingredients to roasting the final product, has an impact on our environment. That’s why we have committed to reducing our carbon footprint in every way possible. KefirCoffee embodies a combination of sustainable, organic, natural, and environmentally friendly practices, while also delivering a great tasting coffee experience. Here’s a recap of the key attributes that make KefirCoffee stand out:
Kefircoffee is not only a flavourful beverage but also offers health benefits. The infusion of kefir into the coffee brewing process increases antioxidants and other bioactive compounds. These bio-active compounds, such as chlorogenic acids, contribute to the health benefits of consuming kefircoffee. Antioxidants are known for their ability to help combat oxidative stress and reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases. By incorporating kefir into the coffee, kefircoffee may provide an additional source of antioxidants, by increasing the antioxidant content compared to regular coffee. Bioactive compounds found in kefir and coffee individually, such as polyphenols and probiotics, have been associated with various health benefits, including improved digestion, immune system support, and potential anti-inflammatory effects. The combination of increased antioxidants and other bioactive compounds in kefircoffee contributes to its positioning as a functional beverage. Functional beverages are those that provide additional health benefits beyond basic nutrition.
By offering a beverage that tastes great while providing these health-enhancing properties, kefircoffee caters to consumers seeking both a pleasurable drinking experience and a health-conscious choice. Teagasc will be conducting testing to verify the increased antioxidants and bioactive compounds in kefircoffee. Scientific testing and analysis are essential for validating our claims regarding the health benefits and composition of Kefircoffee.
The science behind it!
Evaluation of the microbial activity in kefir and its interaction with green coffee beans. It highlights the various metabolic activities of the microorganisms in kefir, including fermentation, enzymatic reactions, and the breakdown of compounds in green coffee beans. Microorganisms in kefir consume and metabolise the sugars present in green coffee beans, leading to the production of organic acids like lactic acid and acetic acid, as well as other metabolic byproducts. These organic acids can impact the acidity and flavour profile of the beans, contributing to the overall taste of the roasted coffee. The enzymes produced by the microorganisms in kefir play a role in molecular interactions with green coffee beans. Proteases break down proteins, which can potentially affect the formation of flavour compounds during roasting. Lipases act on lipids, releasing fatty acids that contribute to the aroma and flavour of the coffee. Amylases break down complex carbohydrates into simpler sugars, which can influence the availability of these sugars during roasting and subsequent flavour development.
The microbial activity in kefir plays a significant role in shaping the flavour profile and aroma characteristics of coffee during the roasting process. The interactions between the microorganisms and the coffee beans result in the production of various organic acids, enzymes, and metabolic byproducts, all of which contribute to the final taste profile of the coffee.
Teagasc can provide valuable insights and data regarding the specific antioxidant levels and bio-active compounds present in kefircoffee. Their laboratory analyses and measurements will quantify and compare the antioxidant content and other bioactive components in kefircoffee compared to regular coffee.
Teagasc will contribute to the scientific-based understanding of kefircoffee and its potential health benefits. The results can help establish a more evidence-based foundation for the product and provide consumers with accurate and certified information, allowing consumers to make informed decisions based on objective data and supporting the positioning of kefircoffee as a functional beverage that offers potential health benefits.
