Starbucks to come up with healthier Frappe blend for all of us
Starbucks, one of the largest cafe chains in the world, is now trying to come up with a new set of Frappucino and flavored latte made of healthier recipes, a venture it started last year.
CNN reported that Starbucks is now testing how it can separate its different flavoring from the sugar since in the traditional recipe, flavors like hazelnut or vanilla are added to drinks with pumps from a single bottle of sugary syrup.
“The new Frappucino recipe contains fewer calories and less sugar: a 16-ounce caramel variety contains 370 calories instead of 420, and includes 49 grams of sugar instead of 67 grams,” the report said.
“Customers at those test stores automatically receive the new recipes. Ideally, they won’t notice a difference in taste between the two versions,” it added.
The new flavored latte recipes also use a bit more milk, so they still include roughly the same amount of sugar and calories as the old recipes.
Right now, a Starbucks official said “customers are responding positively” to sample free taste.
