.... Eat to Live

Food: One of the basic physiological needs, as outlined according to Maslow's theory of needs, that have to be satisfied before higher needs like social needs and esteem can be recognised.

Today, food has taken on a new image. People no longer consume foods to fufil their basic physiological needs...

Pokka Elderflower Tea Drink

News from Singapore Polytechnic:

Feeling thirsty? How about a drink: a cool, refreshing tea with just a hint of mint? Thanks to the efforts of a lecturer and three students from the Singapore Polytechnic (SP) School of Chemical and Life Sciences (CLS), you can now sate your thirst with the Elderflower tea drink.

In May 2007, lecturer Ku-Chong Lee Fong and her food technology students Edwin Neo Junde, Eric Chow Li Chong and Lim Ye Sen started working on a little project to develop a new herbal drink. A year and a half later, their efforts have borne fruit with the official launch of the Elderflower Tea drink, which will be marketed by Pokka Corporation Singapore Limited.

The floral tea, which is brewed from elderflowers and Darjeeling tea, has no colouring or preservative and has been certified as a Healthier Choice by the Health Promotion Board.

The Elderflower is beneficial for the health of your respiratory tract and circulatory system and also serves as a relaxant. Most importantly, it is a traditional remedy for colds and fever.

Beginning 1 December, the Elderflower tea drink will hit the shelves at more than 1000 retail outlets across Singapore, and Pokka has already started making plans to introduce the drink to the South-East Asian market and the region.
