Fiber rich

Increase in bioavailabilty of polyphenolic antioxidants of fruits
Fiber solubilization
Other health benefits:
- protection against inflammatory bowel diseases
- colon cancer.
Whole fruit juice
HUGENHOLTZ, J. 2013. Traditional biotechnology for new foods and beverages. Current Opinion in Biotechnology.
Example: Ginger, sarsaparilla, liquorice root, vanilla bean.
Nitrogen source - nourishment of microbes.

Gingerols and shogaols - ginger- proved for its health benefits.
Sarsaparilla are well known for its tonic, detoxifying and blood purifying properties.
Plant parts like sarsaparilla roots/ginger

Health promoting substances
Distinctive flavours
* Increased aroma profile
* Enhanced organoleptic properties
K. marxianus
* Strong crabtree negative - no alcohol

Yeast fermentation
LAB fermentation
Phytase action
Increased bioavailability of nutrients
B- group vitamins
Lactic acid - Increases shelf life
Exo-polysaccharides - Improved texture and rheological properties

Gluconic acid
- refreshing sour taste in fruit juices, wines, etc.
- fruity flavor
- mild organic acid
- natural preservative in drinks

Gluconobacter oxydans
- used for industrial production of gluconic acid

GRAS certified
Extensive literature survey - Process design
Yeast growth characteristics
- studied in brewery
Basic flavour studies
- Unique flavour combinations
Market survey - 145 random Indian consumers
* studies conducted at the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Brewery & Co.
