Functional Beer

Original article published by Beverage Blog - Tuesday 28 August 2018

There is no doubt in my mind that more of the food we consume in the coming years will offer functional benefits.

It is unlikely, however, that taste and pleasure will diminish in importance.

So, where are the boundaries between food and medicine ?

There are many products testing the limits in dairy especially. But not in beer. Until now.

A Czech brewer Zatec has developed an unusual beer for the Mamma Help breast cancer group.

Mamma Beer is designed to help women combat the side effects of chemotherapy. It is fortified with nutrients such as potassium and vitamin B. It also helps tackle dysgeusia, which affects the taste buds after treatment.

And it’s non-alcoholic.

That seems a degree of innovation worth acknowledging.
