BROCCOLI LATTES

Four out of five adults in Australia don't eat enough fruits and vegetables to meet the national dietary guidelines, a survey conducted by Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation found a year ago.

CSIRO first revealed what it dubbed the Broccolatte in a tweet, touting an easy way to squeeze healthy eating into consumers' busy days as two tablespoons of powder is equivalent to one serving of veggies.

"Research shows the average Australian is still not eating the recommended daily intake of vegetables a day, and options such as broccoli powder will help address this", Lloyd said Wednesday.

He also said despite the increasing popularity of superfoods and health and wellness, Australian diets were still poor.

The 100 percent broccoli powder is made from whole broccoli and produced using a combination of selected pre-treatment and drying processes to retain the natural colour, flavour and nutrient composition of fresh vegetable.

According to the researchers, Broccoli was the best candidate (out of all vegetables) to break down into a powder ingredient because it "contains protein, fibre and health-promoting bioactive phytochemicals".

While the Internet is insisting broccoli stay a source of inspiration for latte art, will vegetable powder appear on more coffee shop menus around the world? But now it may be a bit easier to hide broccoli in other foods, as Australian scientists have developed a nutritious broccoli powder that can be sprinkled through meals or, if you're feeling particularly adventurous, used to make a broccoli latte. They developed the powder, and a number of extruded snacks, as part of a larger research and development project that aims to reduce waste and up the nation's intake of vegetables by creating healthy food products from "ugly" produce.

The next steps are to further develop the product and test it with consumers with the hope of making it commercially available in the future.

“I see this project as the emerging new food trend.

"Australians don't eat enough vegetables and farmers across Australia will have access to an alternative market whilst improving farm yields and sustainability".
