Black Coffee with Shiitake – Therapeutic coffee (120 g)
Freeways therapeutic coffee was born from our preoccupation and desire to facilitate the constant administration of 100% natural supplements, so necessary for the proper functioning of the body, by integrating them into an existing daily routine that is also loved by most of us. As the therapeutic qualities are given by the active principles of the ingredients that complement the coffee, their preservation is possible only by preparing at an average temperature of 40, maximum 60 degrees Celsius. This necessary condition made us choose the instant (soluble) form of coffee, which allows the preparation even with cold water/milk. Instant coffee has the same properties as ground coffee beans, being just a groundless, crushed and dehydrated coffee - a process that does not require excessive processing and does not include chemicals.
All the therapeutic coffee assortments from the Freeways Black Coffee category are based on the 100% Arabica coffee formula, preferred by most coffee lovers.
Description: As the name suggests, the therapeutic value of this coffee assortment is given by Shiitake, the most cultivated medicinal mushroom in the world, a symbol of longevity in Asia due to its rich nutritional profile and the many health benefits it brings. These mushrooms have an important role in Asian medical traditions, being mentioned since the first books of natural medicine, written thousands of years ago. They contain B vitamins, ergosterol, minerals (manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, copper, zinc), fiber, protein, magnesium, iron and essential amino acids. Due to the active principles of these elements, Shiitake mushrooms have an immuno-modulatory, anticancer, antiviral, detoxifying and antifungal effect.
Presentation: 120 g jar
Administration: add 2 - 4 g (1 - 2 teaspoons) of coffee, depending on your preference, to a cup of warm water/milk (40 - 60 degrees Celsius) and mix well until all the powder dissolves.
ANY Freeways coffee assortment DOES NOT contain harmful ingredients for the body, such as: caramel, artificial sweeteners, dyes, food additives, anti-caking agents, preservatives, artificial flavors, etc.
Instant coffee is made from coffee beans, real coffee. Coffee beans are roasted, ground and infused before beginning their journey to instant coffee. What turns coffee into instant coffee is when water is removed from the infused product, resulting in dehydrated coffee crystals. To bring them back to the coffee condition, it is enough to add water to these crystals.
There are two methods of obtaining soluble coffee from coffee beans: dehydration by spraying (method by which the coffee for Freeways therapeutic coffee assortments is obtained), respectively dehydration by freezing.
The first method (spray dehydration) consists of spraying a liquid coffee concentrate as a spray in a very hot and dry air (at a temperature of 250 degrees Celsius). When the coffee sprayed in the air falls back on a flat surface, the water has already evaporated forming small round crystals of instant coffee.
Instant coffee has the same properties as ground coffee beans. The difference is that when we make instant coffee, doing so in the same way every time (for example, putting 2 teaspoons per cup), we have practically the same amount of antioxidants. In contrast, with ground coffee beans, the amount of antioxidants that are extracted depends on the degree of grinding and the way we prepare the coffee.
Shiitake (Lentinula edodes)
The therapeutic value of Shiitake mushrooms has been discovered in Asian countries where they originate, being used both as food and medicine (over 6,000 years in Chinese medicine). Their taste and nutritional and therapeutic qualities were so appreciated that, for a long time, in Japan they were used only by imperial families.
The best Shiitake mushrooms` documented contribution to health is for immune support. On one hand, they stimulate the immune system's response in various circumstances, and on the other hand, they limit its excessive activity when appropriate.
Shiitake mushrooms stimulate the activity of macrophage cells to fulfill their role of identifying and neutralizing potential cancer cells in the body. This is due to the content of polysaccharides, useful in lowering the level of total cholesterol. This last effect is amplified by two other components of the mushrooms - lentinacin and beta-glucan.
The prevention of cardiovascular diseases is done by protecting the blood vessels as a result of preventing the adhesion of too many immune cells to the walls of the blood vessels, partially blocking the process of production of adhesion molecules. Moreover, the minerals (Mn, Se, Zn) and antioxidant compounds in the composition stimulate the production of energy in the heart cells.
Some laboratory studies have shown that, in addition to polysaccharides, Shiitake mushrooms also contain other substances with anti-tumor effects, thus being very important in the fight against cancer.
