Philips Introduces Latest Vacuum Blending Technology for Maximum Nutrition Preservation in Smoothies

Singapore – Staying healthy just got easier as Philips introduces its latest kitchen innovation, the Philips High Speed Vacuum Blender. With its unique vacuum blending technology, consumers can now enjoy fresh and delicious smoothies throughout the day with nutritional goodness all sealed within.
 

According to the World Health Organization, a healthy diet consists of 400 grams or five portions worth of fruit and vegetables a day. Consuming the recommended amount also reduces the risk of lifestyle related diseases and helps ensure an adequate intake of dietary fibersi. Based on market research by Philips, consumers today primarily use their blenders to prepare smoothies (61%) as it allows them to consume more fruits in a single serving (67%)ii.

Drinking smoothies are a great way to get more fruits and vegetables into our diet. However, oxidation that occurs during the blending process causes browning, decolorization and separation. This immediately decreases the nutritional value of the vitamins and minerals released. The introduction of modern day technology such as vacuum blending can help to slow down this process for smoothies to stay fresher for longer.

Reduce oxidation and keep nutrients sealed for longer periods
 

According to market research by Philips, consumers believe that leaving smoothies out for a few hours reduces its taste (66%) and nutritional value (65%)i, however, studies have shown that 85% of consumers want to keep their smoothies fresher for longerii. Philips’ innovative StayFresh Vacuum Technology is equipped with Philips’ patented joint lid solution and vacuum process filter. It combines a powerful pump with an air-sealed system to keep air out during the vacuuming process to visibly reduce the amount of bubbles, foam and separation that occurs.

The Philips’ StayFresh Vacuum Technology helps smoothies to not only look brighter and taste better, but also retain their “just made” freshness for a longer periodiii. It also preserves three times the amount of vitamin C and 60% more antioxidant capacity even after eight hours as compared to normal blendingiv so that our bodies can still absorb every nutritional benefit from our smoothies throughout the day, as it stays as fresh as when we made them.

Consumers today are more health conscious. At Philips, we are committed to developing innovative products and solutions so consumers are empowered to take charge of their health. The Philips High Speed Vacuum Blender is designed to help make consuming the adequate amount of fruits and vegetables fuss-free for consumers so that they can get more nutrients out of their smoothies.
