A lot has changed since the invention of refrigerators, cans, and microwave ovens. We eat food every day, so naturally the food industry is always on the go, trying to invent some brilliant new product that will impress even the most hardcore foodies. That being said, even food industry has its strange days. Some of its inventions are cute and yummy, while others belong in a futuristic sci-fi movie where chocolate is pink and doughnuts can glow in the dark like a Christmas tree. If you aren’t afraid of blue wine and even bluer beer, here’s a list of 8 utterly strange and colorful inventions in food industry.
We never asked for it, but it’s finally here! Also dubbed as ‘clear coffee’ (CLR CFF), this new beverage is a mix of what we all love so much (caffeine and that amazing bitter coffee taste) without those nasty bits we hate (the stains coffee leaves on teeth and clothes). David and Adam Nagy, two brothers from Slovakia, came up with colorless coffee that is made with high quality Arabica coffee beans and purified water. According to advertisements, this transparent liquid tastes like strong cold brew and provides the boost without all the calories and unwanted coloring. It seems like a perfect drink, but how many of you would sacrifice that morning cup of joe for a bottle of cold colorless beverage? We probably wouldn’t.
Naturally Pink Chocolate
It’s been 80 years since the last serious chocolate discovery was made, and now scientists have finally discovered a new type of chocolate (which, if you want our opinion, instantly made the world a better place). Ruby is a new, fourth type of chocolate that is naturally pink, created without any food dye or berries. Barry Callebaut, one of the biggest cocoa processors in the world, invented the process of converting Ruby cocoa beans into actual chocolate. The bean was discovered 13 years ago, but the new type of chocolate was presented in Shanghai, China, only recently!
Also dubbed as BLK. Water, this new type of beverage created by Chris and Albie Manzo is not only eye-catching, but can also improve your health and even make you sleep better (according to the official website). What is BLK. Water made of? It’s spring water infused with a natural nutrient rich compound – fulvic acid. Mixed with water, the fulvic acid causes a chemical reaction which results in the dark and somewhat disturbing dark color of the drink. Nevertheless, fulvic acid has been around for ages and is a known substance used by healers all over the world. What does this water taste like? According to people who have tried it – just like your ordinary water.
