Z Natural Foods has expanded its range of functional ‘superfood’ beverages with the introduction of an Organic Instant Mushroom Coffee.
The company’s latest product, which comes in an air-locked, freezer-tight, resealable pouch, features a blend of organic dark roasted Colombian coffee and coconut milk.
The coffee is infused with three kinds of mushroom powder: organic chaga, reported to have possible immune system-supporting properties; organic lion’s mane, ‘for its possible mental calming and concentration effects’; and organic cordyceps, which is said to support energy and vitality.
The Florida-based company says that the harvesting and drying techniques used on the mushrooms maximise their nutritional potency and claims its new coffee blend is high in antioxidants, beta-glucans and chlorogenic acid.
Jonathan Parker, director of nutrition sciences at Z Natural Foods, said: “Our goal was to create a highly nutritious instant coffee without sacrificing taste.
“There is no brewing needed, just add water and you’ll instantly enjoy this lightly sweet and creamy beverage that will forever make you rethink your morning coffee.
“The instant coffee is a fine crystal powder so it dissolves quickly. You won’t notice you are getting vitamin D, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals from the mushrooms because the taste of the delicious dark roast coffee is so good.”
Z Natural Foods’ Organic Instant Mushroom Coffee is available for $29.99 per 1lb pouch.
Earlier this year, Z Natural Foods released an Ultimate 25 Superfood Fusion, which was said to combine 25 of the most nutritionally potent superfoods in one blend.
