Functional ingredient major FutureCeuticals has been issued a Japanese patent for whole coffee fruit production, including coffee fruit powders, extracts and concentrates. 

The patent also covers use of coffee fruit products as ingredients in food and beverage and dietary supplement products. 

Because coffee cherries—the fruit of the coffee plant—tends to rapidly spoil following harvest, it has historically been overlooked for food and beverage applications as unfit for human consumption​,” said John Hunter, executive vice-president of FutureCeuticals. 

Our team developed methods, now patented throughout the world, for preserving and processing the fruit prior to spoiling​. 

These latest patents, together with our developing body of clinical research on the unique health benefits of the whole coffee fruit, create a unique platform for the development of truly groundbreaking products and partnerships​.”

The company’s line of coffee fruit products is marketed worldwide under the Coffeeberry brand name.
