“西兰花”咖啡亮相

“西兰花”咖啡将在未来成为大势之趋。



1
Green coffee could be the way of future after Australian scientists discovered that "broccoli lattes" are a healthy alternative to regular, flat white coffees.
澳洲科学家研究表明,“西兰花”咖啡将在未来成为大势之趋,这款更为健康的咖啡饮品可以将普通的奶咖取而代之。


2
Researchers at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization have developed a powdered broccoli product which can be used in coffee, smoothies, soups and baking to get essential nutrients into Australian diets.
来自澳洲科学与工业研究院(CSIRO)的科学家们研发出一种特制“西兰花粉”,通过将其添加到咖啡、冰沙、汤羹或烘焙制品中,就能为每份膳食提供足够的营养。

"Green, nutrient-rich coffees may be on the horizon after researchers have developed a powder made from imperfect-looking broccoli that would have previously been wasted," the organization said in a recent statement.
该研究院近期在一份报告中指出,“人们常常将那些卖相较差的的西兰花扔掉,造成浪费,但是我们将它“废物利用”。新研发的西兰花粉绿色、健康,或许会在未来拥有广阔的前景。”

Unsurprisingly, Australian diets are no better than other western countries such as Britain and America. 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 issue.
澳洲的饮食结构与其他典型的西方国家如英国、美国相似,都重荤轻素。研究人员发现,当今澳大利亚人每日仍然没有摄入充足的蔬菜食入量,推出方便易用的西兰花粉或许可以改善饮食不均衡的现状。


5
The 100-percent broccoli powder is made from whole broccoli and produced using a combination of selected pretreatment and drying processes to retain the natural color, flavor and nutrient composition.
这种100%纯西兰花粉将整颗西兰花经过预处理后进行干燥,保留了原有色泽,口味的同时,也锁住了营养物质。


6
Research also indicates that the broccoli is high in protein, fiber and health-promoting bioactive phytochemicals, making it an ideal candidate for powder development.
研究还表明西兰花是一种富含蛋白质、纤维和高生物活性物质的健康食物,这也让它顺理成章成为制作健康蔬菜粉的首选材料。





7
The broccoli powder and associated snacks are being developed as part of a larger research and development project that aims to reduce vegetable waste by creating healthy food products from "ugly" produce.
西兰花粉和随之同步推出的各类附属零食只是研究院开拓新兴蔬菜产品的第一步。据悉,今后会有更多的蔬菜类健康食品问世,通过对“相貌平平”的蔬菜们进行“大改造”,减少蔬菜浪费。



Broccoli and Cauliflower
西兰花和花椰菜


1
Broccoli and cauliflower are two different species in the same family ? cabbage family. Despite claims that the two are so similar they are nearly interchangeable, there are some notable differences between these vegetables. They look different, they don’t taste exactly the same, and they offer distinctive nutrients.
西兰花和花椰菜都是甘蓝的变种。尽管两种蔬菜形态上相似,人们也常常混淆两者,但是它们有着显著的差异:外观不同,味道不同,营养组成也有差异。


Broccoli?
Cauliflower?


2
In appearance, most cauliflower has closely bunched tight masses that appear together on stems. Broccoli's flower masses are more loosely distributed so that it's possible to see space in between each stalk. Sometimes, broccoli is compared to tiny trees, while cauliflower looks more like masses of cumulus clouds. Cauliflower is also typically white in color with light green leaves surrounding the head, while the other vegetable can be dark green or sometimes have purple streaks through it.
外观上,大多数的花椰菜都有着巨大的花芽,紧密地簇拥在一起。西兰花的花芽则稀松点,并不是全部“挤在一起”,因此能看见花梗间的缝隙。西兰花常被人比作一棵棵“小树”,而花椰菜看上去更像是一团团云朵。花椰菜通常都是白色,外围由绿叶围绕,西兰花则呈深绿色,有时还会有紫色泛出。
