Gamma-Tocopherol Enhanced Coffee


A research project has found that one brand of coffee had nine percent corn mixed in with the processed coffee from Brazil. The corn, contains a high concentration of Gamma-Tocopherol which is Vitamin E.

The research group, has found a better way to detect the corn in coffee using the Vitamin E footprint in corn. The group stated that it is a serious problem and such things as coffee twigs, cereal grains and brown sugar can be mixed in the coffee.

A person in the research group pointed out that the rising price of gourmet coffee with adulterations of corn is short changing customers.

Shouldn't Inhanced be Enhanced?

  while cutting coffee..  
..with corn is dishonest, at least it's not dangerous. People read a headline like "Gamma-Tocopherol Inhanced Coffee" and they start wigging out and totally miss that Gamma-Tocopherol is just the primary isomer of Vitamin E and is found in most lipid-containing nuts and grains.

Sharp eye you have. "Enhanced" is the correct word.

Brilliant title for what really is just a story about corn in coffee.

  by: Purplexed   09/06/2007 04:38 PM     
love those misleading titles, reminds me of a penn and teller episode where they convince people to sign a petition to ban water by calling it dihydrogen oxide or something similar.

Seems odd how coffee is so expensive when the majority of it is grown in third world countries, guess thats what you call exploitation.
