this really opens the door for a large percentage of people who felt like they could not drink coffee due to the stomach irritation and heart burn side effects
Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 12, 2013
For many Americans, a typical day begins with waking up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee, however for nearly one-fifth of American coffee drinkers the irritation of stomach acid and uncomfortable feeling associated with drinking coffee makes that morning cup of joe a real problem. Applied Food Sciences, Inc. announces the recent issuance of U.S. Patent No. 8,357,419 that pertains to the HealthyRoast® process for roasting coffee while maintaining stomach friendly natural antioxidants. The patent describes a novel method of enhancing the ability of coffee to protect against irritations of the gastric tract.
Unroasted (green) coffee beans contain a valuable source of beneficial antioxidants called polyphenols. Unfortunately, to make coffee, green beans must be roasted at high temperatures which destroy most of these soluble polyphenols and for some people can irritate the stomach lining. “The HealthyRoast® technology preserves these naturally occurring antioxidants and helps safeguard the stomach from irritation”, says Jackson Zapp VP of marketing for Applied Food Sciences, “this really opens the door for a large percentage of people who felt like they could not drink coffee due to the stomach irritation and heart burn side effects.”
Applied Food Sciences currently sells an organic brand of coffee that utilizes this stomach friendly technology called Caffe Sanora®. Caffe Sanora is sold nation-wide in the natural / organic sets in grocery chains such as Kroger. Caffe Sanora is sold in different roast types in both whole bean or ground varieties and retails for about $10.99/bag.
