Description:
Manufacturing process and product of a healthy drink

The field of the invention

The invention is related to healthy drinks, such as for example organic drinks.

State of the art

People are nowadays more and more aware of healthy effects of different kind of natural food and drinks. For example organic drinks are known for their healthy effects. A problem with organic drinks has been substantially short preservation time. Especially when spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout is used a short preservation time is a problem, and this why such sprouts have been used in drinks with unhealthy preservatives and ingredients, which may even cause cancer, as some research results have indicated.

Brief description of the invention

The object of the invention is an advanced healthy drink which has long

preservation time. This is achieved by a process for manufacturing a healthy drink. In the process the drink is manufactured by using spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout, water, and carbon acid, the carbon acid being a preservative in the drink, and all other substances are excluded in the process.

The focus of the invention is also a healthy drink, which consists of spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout, water and carbon acid, the carbon acid being a preservative in the drink, and all other substances are excluded.

The invention is based on formation of a healthy drink, which consists of spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout, water and carbon acid and/or an equivalent preservative in the drink, and in the formation all other substances such as for example unhealthy ingredients are excluded. Benefit of the invention is that on the basis of the invention can be achieved a unique healthy drink consisting of spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout and having a longer preservation time than prior art healthy drinks. Detailed description of the invention

A healthy drink according to the present invention has several novel features. A novel healthy drink has been achieved consisting of spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout without any unhealthy substances, e.g. ingredients and/or preservatives. This is based on use of carbon acid as preservative with said sprout and water. A typical carbon acid is a compound of carbondioxide (C0 2 ) and water with a chemical formula H 2 C0 3 . Carbondioxide, that dissolves in water, forms carbon acid. Carbon acid can comprise carbonates (E 500 - E 504 ) as salts. In one exemplary embodiment according to the present invention water and spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout are mixed and sluiced into a bottle. After that carbondioxide is dissolved in water that is in bottle and carbon acid is formed. In this chemical process oxygen is deleted from the bottle and after that the bottle is closed as being oxygen tight. Carbondioxide can be added to the bottle for example in a gaseous form inside a tablet or similar, or directly in a gaseous form, e.g.

through a tube, or in a liquid form. The formed carbon acid is a very effective preservative in a healthy drink inside a bottle in which is no oxygen.

In an embodiment according to the present invention healthy drink is manufactured in a process by using spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout, water, and carbon acid. The carbon acid is a preservative in the drink. All other substances, such as e.g. ingredients and preservatives, can be excluded in the process.

In the process according to the present invention the drink is manufactured by using spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout, water, and carbon acid by mixing carbon acid and possible other preservatives to a liquid of water and spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout. The water can be warmed before or during the mixing. The mixing can be also performed without warming of the water. In another embodiment according to the invention healthy drink is manufactured by using spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout, water, and carbon acid, the spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout being in form of powder, which powder is mixed to the water and carbon acid and to possible other preservatives. The water can be warmed before or during the mixing. The mixing can be also performed without warming of the water.

In other embodiments according to the present invention as preservatives with carbon acid can be used for example citron acid or citron or both of them. Citron acid or citron can be added to the healthy drink e.g. by using spoiled water. Spoiled water can be poured over spruce sprouts, and after that citron acid and/or citron can be added to the mix of water and spruce sprouts, and then carbon acid is added or preferably formed by using carbondioxide as described above. In the embodiment the spruce sprout or equivalent conifer sprout being in form of powder, spoiled water can be poured over spruce sprout powder, and after that citron acid and/or citron can be added to the mix of water and spruce sprouts, and when temperature of the water in the mix is colder then carbon acid is added or preferably formed by using carbondioxide as described above. For example in EU countries carbon acid, citron acid and citron are accepted as organic preservatives, and thus the healthy drink according to the present invention can be accepted as an organic drink.

In one embodiment according to the present invention the used water is natural mineral water. For example one special healthy mineral water from an Finnish underground spring can be used. Said mineral water comprises as mineral values in milligrams per litre: Natrium Na+ 85, Kalium K+ 4,1 , Kalsium Ca2+ 51, Magnesium Mg2+ 13, Bicarbonate HC03 210, Cloride Cl- 110, Sulfate S042- 27 and Fluoride F- 0,50. The PH value can be e.g. 8,3. The TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) value can be e.g. 519. In this kind of novel healthy drink, antioxidants and A and C vitamins of the spruce sprout or equivalent sprout together with positive healthy effects of the special mineral water with its mineral values forms a novel and unique healthy drink. In manufacturing processes according to the present invention sugar can be added or formed to the healthy drink.

Spruce sprout or equivalent can be dried for example in oven with a maximum temperature 35 C, and after that the sprout can be pulverized, or the sprout can be dried in a freezer, and after that it can be pulverized. Especially drying in a freezer guarantees splendid flavor, taste and very important nutritive substances of the spruce sprout or equivalent sprout. In a form of dried powder the spruce sprout can be preserved very long times, e.g. many years. When the spruce sprout is mixed into water, it can be preserved only a short time, e.g. a couple of days, but the carbon acid used according to the present invention substantially lengthens the preservation times e.g. to months or even for example to one year.

Thus, while there have been shown and described and pointed out fundamental novel features of the invention as applied to a preferred embodiment thereof, it will be understood that various omissions and substitutions and changes in the form and details of the invention may be made by those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit of the invention. For example, it is expressly intended that all combinations of those elements which perform substantially the same results are within the scope of the invention. Substitutions of the elements from one described embodiment to another are also fully intended and contemplated. It is also to be understood that the drawings are not necessarily drawn to scale but they are merely conceptual in nature. It is the intention, therefore, to be limited only as indicated by the scope of the claims appended hereto.
