At DrinkTec Munich 2022 functional ingredient expert Taiyo presented brand new beverage concepts which addressed current consumer trends, such as energy water, sleep water, sports nutrition, and other functional drinks. The company presented a newcomer to its Sunfiber® portfolio, Sunfiber VC – an all-natural, 100% soluble dietary fiber – as well as its new Sunfiber Water, CherryShield water and other functional waters. It also presented different “always perfect instant teas”, specially prepared for being brewed in Nespresso cups. Other highlights at the Taiyo booth included the SunMatcha extract and Moringa extract with weight loss properties. The managing director, Dr. Stefan Siebrecht, also informed the audience about the effects of Theanine and it´s benefits for your beverages.
With SunMatcha extract, Taiyo offers a new variant in addition to existing green tea extracts. This product in the Matcha range is rich in polyphenols, which is mainly found in green tea, and has a proven positive effect on the immune system. Furthermore, polyphenols inhibit inflammation and, like a “vacuum cleaner”, catch all free radicals that can damage body cells. According to studies, this can prevent cell damage and slow down the growth of certain cancer cells. The product has been specially developed for the use in beverages because it is easy soluble and has no coloring properties.
Other highlights at the Taiyo´s DrinkTec booth included the various Sunfiber Blends with different added health benefits. As well as the Sunfiber Water Concept, which allows the production of isotonic drinks that contain less sugar and additional dietary fiber for a much higher bioavailability of minerals. It is also possible to customize such beverages by adding more active ingredients such as Theanine or Moringa extract, depending on the effect you want to reach.
On Wednesday, 14Th of September, Taiyo GmbH Managing Director Dr. Stefan Siebrecht informed the audience at Inspiration Hub A3 about the benefits of using natural Theanine. As synthetical Theanine is careful to be handled in the EU, our natural alternative Sunphenon TH-30 offers the perfect chance to give your drink some relaxing effects. All that by not making you feel buzzed, but focused and clear minded (alcohol mimetic).
The DrinkTec 2022 took place from 12th to 16th September in Munich. We want to thank everybody for visiting our booth and the great conversations we had. You enriched the exhibition and we hope to keep contact.
