A delicious drink for moments to savour!
Due to the special manufacturing process used, the instant coffee is gluten-free. First, the individual ingredients are partially malted, roasted, coarsely ground and blended. Next, the roasted and crushed ingredients are brewed to produce a concentrated coffee extract. The powder including the proteins prolamin and glutelin which together constitute gluten and are responsible for intolerance is insoluble and remains in the filter. At this point, the grain coffee is therefore already gluten-free. In the next step, the liquid extract is instantised, in other words it is transformed into a fine powder by spray drying and then packaged. To ensure that no gluten, or even traces of it, is contained in its range of instant coffees, Naturata carries out regular analyses. The gluten content is consistently found to be below the limit of detection.

Naturata instant grain coffee has always been produced at a family-run artisanal business in the Emmental valley in Switzerland.
Prior to roasting, the chicory roots, acorns and figs are chopped and dried; the grain is malted for 1-3 days. During the malting process, the grain, rye and barley, is soaked until it germinates. Next, all constituent parts are gently roasted individually. Here, the experience of the roaster plays a decisive role: the roasting process should neither be too long nor too short. Each individual ingredient is roasted for the appropriate time required to achieve a harmonious composition.
The roasted ingredients are then coarsely ground and extraction can begin: this involves the ingredients being very gently flooded with hot water according to the counter-current principle. A sort of grain coffee is prepared which is subsequently thickened. The resulting brown coffee concentrate, with 25 % dry matter, is sprayed as a fine mist in a tall spraying tower. The liquid content of the droplets is extracted as they fall through a current of hot air. What arrives at the bottom is dried instant coffee powder.
This time-consuming production process, including the final spray-drying step, is responsible for the delicate crema ? similar to a freshly brewed pure coffee ? which the grain coffee gets when water is added. No auxiliary agents are used.
Tips for preparation
Put 1-2 teaspoons (approx. 2.5 g) in each cup and pour on 200 ml of (hot) water. Give it a stir - ready! For even more enjoyment, use (hot) milk instead of water or add cream or sweetener to taste.
Naturata grain coffee can be enjoyed not only as a hot drink or as iced coffee. It also adds a sophisticated touch to desserts and a host of other dishes.
