Zero alcohol wine powders, apple cider vinegar powder with ‘mother’, essential oil powders, botanical extracts and cold pressed oils the creations of Botanical Innovations.
Kerry Ferguson formed Botanical Innovations to create novel functional flavours, fragrances and ingredients that balance taste, aroma, versatility with health and wellness benefits.
“Our core focus is ensuring our products taste good while providing added health benefits. Our apple cider vinegar powder with ‘mother’ has all the benefits of apple cider vinegar with a unique sweet apple and sour flavour. Being in a powder form it can be pressed into pills, added to foods, drinks or taken on its own.” said Ms Ferguson.
Long term investment in research and development has allowed Botanical Innovations to develop proprietary technologies for the manufacturing of its unique range of polyphenolic rich flavours, fragrances and ingredients.
“Essential oils have numerous health benefits however they cannot be taken on their own. They can be difficult to work with. To address this we developed a unique way to encapsulate the oil in a powdered form. The beautiful aromas and wellness properties of sage, thyme, basil, rosemary to name a few are now available as powder.” said Ms Ferguson.
Botanical Innovations unique ingredients won the Australian Food and Beverage Industry Innovative Ingredient award 2 years running. The latest invention to hit the market is zero alcohol wine powders.
“The flavours, aroma and polyphenols in wine are a great additional to foods and drinks. However, the alcohol is not. To overcome this we take good quality Australian wine and turned it into a powder. Our zero alcohol wine powders retain the all flavours, aromas and taste of the wine that was used to make it. Botanical Innovations wine powders can be added to foods, beverages or just add water and drink.” said Ms Ferguson.
Botanical Innovations has also developed a zero alcohol whiskey. This is a drink. It is made from aged whiskey. A premium product for the connoisseur to be drunk and enjoyed.
