Food product launches: from cold brew coffee gelato to probiotic drinks

From plant-based probiotics to cacaofruit chocolate, here’s a quick splash about some of the new food products hitting the shelves.

1. Cold brew vegan gelato 

Gelatissimo’s cold brew coffee gelato is prepared by steeping coffee beans in water for up to 24 hours to create a coffee concentrate. The cold brew produces a smooth coffee that contains less acidity than hot brewed coffee. This is claimed to provide a sweeter flavour with no bitter aftertaste. The vegan gelato uses oat milk specifically designed to be paired with coffee.

2. Garnish range

Monday Distillery dehydrates artisan fruit and botanicals at low temperatures to retain extra colour, flavour, aroma and texture. Everything is then packaged and sealed to keep it fresh and bright. The Garnish by Monday range features dried cucumber, lemon, lime, strawberry, pineapple and orange twists that can be used for tapas, cocktails or the distillery’s zero alcohol drinks.

3. Sparkling probiotic drink

PERKii’s non-fermented 100% plant-based Sparkling Probiotic Drink is bottled with one billion plant-based probiotics, blended with natural flavours and is only 45 calories per serve. First developed at the University of Queensland, PERKii’s Targeted Release Probiotics are claimed to be micro-shielded to resist stomach acid up to 10,000 times stronger than non-micro-shield probiotics. The range has three flavours — watermelon, mint cucumber and ginger kick.

4. Wholefruit chocolate

Cacao Barry’s WholeFruit Evocao couverture chocolate has a fruity taste. With 40% less sugar than most dark chocolates, it is made from 100% pure cacaofruit — a fruit of which 70% is normally discarded as waste. Other flavours are set to be released in 2022.

5. Bite-sized crackers

RITZ’s oven-baked Cracker Bites are bite-sized versions of the company’s biscuit. The new range comes in three flavours — classic, cheddar cheese, and sour cream and onion.

6. Hokey Pokey chocolate range

Whittaker’s Hokey Pokey Crunch features aerated honeycomb pieces encased in Whittaker’s 33% cocoa Five Roll Refined Creamy Milk chocolate.
