Title (EN) VITAMIN C ENRICHED COFFEE, COCOA, AND TEA, AND PROCESS FOR ITS PRODUCTION
(FR) CAFE, CACAO ET THE ENRICHIS EN VITAMINE C ET LEUR PROCEDE DE PRODUCTION
Abstract:
(EN) A method of making a vitamin C enriched beverage using ripe beans is set forth. The ripe beans are roasted to produce roasted beans (10). The roasted beans are allowed to cool to a temperature less than 220 °F forming partially cooled beans (12). A mineral ascorbate composition having vitamin C activity is then added with a carrier substance forming a first composition (16). The first composition is then applied to the partially cooled beans forming vitamin C enriched beans (18). The vitamin C enriched ground composite is then added to boiling water producing a vitamin C enriched beverage. The beans may be coffee beans or cocoa beans (110). A method of producing vitamin C enriched tea is also set forth.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un procédé de production de boisson enrichie en vitamine C à base de fèves arrivées à maturité que l'on torréfie pour obtenir des fèves torréfiées (10) et que l'on laisse refroidir jusqu'à une température inférieure à 220 °F de façon à avoir des fèves partiellement refroidies (12). On ajoute ensuite une composition minérale d'ascorbate dotée d'une activité de vitamine C à une substance support pour constituer une première composition (16) que l'on applique alors sur les fèves partiellement refroidies pour produire des fèves (18) enrichies en vitamine C. Ce composite moulu enrichi en vitamine C est ensuite ajouté à de l'eau bouillante, ce qui donne une boisson enrichie en vitamine C. Les fèves peuvent être des grains de café ou des fèves de cacao (110). L'invention a également trait à un procédé d'élaboration de thé enrichi en vitamine C.
