Need to rehydrate, try “Bukolyte,” a new powdered coconut juice drink developed by the Department of Science and Technology Regional Office XI (DOST XI) food innovation facility.

Bukolyte as its brand, will be launched on 24 November 2021 at the SM City Davao, Ecoland which will also showcase other Food Processing Innovation Center-Davao (FPIC-Davao) services, products and innovations. Bukolyte is one of the various innovative food products developed from the FPIC–Davao.

The FPIC-Davao is a one-stop-shop food research and development hub for local food processors, students, food technologies, and researchers who can collaborate and co-create value-adding food products. It is a collaborative project by the DOST XI, Philippine Women’s College Davao, Department of Trade and Industry XI, and the Food Processors Association of Davao (FPAD), Inc.

The powdered juice drink is developed using the FPIC’s spray-drying technology that converts liquid extracts into powder while preserving its important nutrients. The juice drink is a healthy alternative to other commercially available fruit juices as it has no artificial flavoring and preservatives added.

It is also loaded with nutrients and minerals and contains four electrolytes, namely potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium that are known to support rapid hydration to the body. It is particularly designed for modern on-the-go hydration that allows consumers to drink coconut water, anytime and anywhere.

Similarly, Bukolyte can treat dehydration caused by excessive vomiting and diarrhea, heavy sweating due to exercise and heat, and hangovers.

Known as the tree of life, the coconut is considered as one of the country’s major crops as it has wide-range of utility in fuel, food and beverages, construction, cosmetics, and medicine among others. Among the most popular food products derived from coconut are pies, cakes, ice cream, candies, and jams.

The launch is part of the DOST virtual celebration of the 2021 National Science and Technology Week from November 22-28 with the theme “Agham at Teknolohiya: Tugon sa Hamon ng Panahon”.
