P Wongsa et al, 2019. Quality and bioactive compounds of blends of arabica and robusta spray-dried coffee, Food Chemistry, Volume 283.
The objective of this study was to develop both a possible process and a spray-dried coffee product with a balanced content of bioactive compounds. Spray-dried coffees were prepared by mixing different ratios of medium-roasted Coffea canephora (R) with green Coffea arabica (A) beans. Overall, quality characteristics of spray-dried coffees were not different. The dominant signals of 1D 1 H NMR were identified as trigonelline, caffeine and chlorogenic and organic acids. Principal component analysis explained 81.8% of the total variance. Roasted Robusta spray-dried coffee was clearly distinguished from blended coffees. Forty-two volatile compounds were identified. An increase in green Arabica mixed with roasted Robusta in the blends resulted in an increase in 5-caffeoylquinic acid but a decrease in caffeine contents. Spray-dried coffee prepared from a A35:R65 showed greater total phenolic content and antioxidant activity due to a balance in bioactive compounds. In addition, its coffee brew obtained the highest overall liking score.
Ja tak, jeg vil gerne modtage nyhedsbrev, når der er noget nyt om kaffe og helbred.
