- A brand new type of coffee made its Australian debut this week in Melbourne
- The horticultural sector has sampled cauliflower lobes during their annual conference

A brand new type of coffee made its Australian debut this week in Melbourne – and it caused quite a stir among health and wellness enthusiasts.
Members of the horticultural sector got their first taste of the cauliflower latte on Monday at this year's Hort Connections conference in Melbourne.
Fresh Select CEO and farmer, John Said, told ABC Rural that scientists added the vegetable to coffee to stimulate the consumption of fruit and vegetables.

Delegates at this year's Hort Connections conference were able to taste the benefits of adding cauliflower powder to coffee
& # 39; This ability to include a vegetable powder in some of the regular products that we all buy and consume is a major step forward in increasing the consumption of vegetables and trying to eat healthier without knowing that we healthier eating, & # 39; Said explained.
A CSIRO report that was previously found Australians are struggling with themselves when it comes to fruits and vegetables, with one in two adults not eating the recommended daily allowance.
Said describes how the idea for the cauliflower latte came about after the success of the quirky broccoli latte, which caused international headlines last year.
& # 39; We thought that cauliflower is slightly creamier and that the color is similar to milk and that it doesn't look like green coffee, & # 39; he said.
The drink, made with about 7 grams of cauliflower powder, has a creamier aroma that removes the bitter edge of the coffee.
Mr. Said recalled how partygoers at this week's conference could not get enough of the drink & # 39; which is good feedback & # 39; despite the strangely familiar vega taste.

Although late on a cauliflower, it seems like a novelty for some consumers, the CEO said it has the potential to address the nation's poor fruit and vegetable consumption.
He said that research has come a long way and that scientists have come to the point of replacing sugars in foods with vegetable-based powders.
& # 39; You never thought of putting a portion of vegetables in a loaf, but I think it's about to become reality, & # 39; he said.
Lauren Scott of Produce Marketing Association in America said that the reason why the sale of fruit and vegetables on a global scale is poor has to do with our vision that she & # 39; healthy & # 39; to be.
She said if we can think about new ways to produce food – including the cauliflower latte – and think beyond the healthy benefit, that's what will boost sales.
