DaVinci Gourmet launches new beverage solutions with health benefits

The collection meets growing demand for the foodservice industry to offer beverages that support good health and today’s active lifestyles.

DaVinci Gourmet has introduced a new range of five beverage solutions fortified to enhance well-being – Wellmune Boost, Culture Boost, Plant Protein Boost, Turmeric Craft Blend, and Bulletproof Craft Blend. Formulated with Kerry’s ingredients, DaVinci Gourmet Health Boost range enables consumers to optimise nutrition in beverages.

For instance, Wellmune Boost is formulated with Kerry’s Wellmune, a beta glucan that support a healthy immune system. Culture Boost is crafted with Ganeden BC30, a shelf-stable, spore-forming probiotic with digestive health benefits. Plant Protein Boost contains ProDiem, a plant protein consisting essential amino acids necessary for strength, and to maintain a health, active lifestyle. Turmeric Craft Blend is said to double the immunity enhancing power of turmeric through a combination of black pepper and spices. And Bulletproof Craft Blend, it is crafted with medium-chain triglyceride (MCTs) oils to fortify beverages on the menu.

From immune and digestive health to protein fortification, consumers are now looking to add more ingredients in their diet that support their well-being, and beverage is “the fastest growing category for wellness concepts”, Kerry claimed. A Mintel and FS Menu report highlighted results of a Kerry consumer survey conducted in Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa indicated that 67% of consumers look to the foodservice industry for drinks that offer additional nutritional enhancement.

DaVinci Gourmet Health Boost is available in Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa through foodservice distributors and operators.
