A cafe in Melbourne has become the first in the world to experiment with a broccoli latte.

However, Keck points out coffee itself is an acquired taste - and that a broccoli latte isn't so odd in the age of the tumeric latte, the beetroot latte and other superfood cafe drinks.

The healthy powder, made from imperfect-looking broccoli that would have previously been wasted, packs a healthy punch with Hort Innovation chief executive John Lloyd claiming "Australian diets are still poor". According to the drink's Australian creators, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and Hort Innovation, it's received "mixed" reviews at the Melbourne cafe which served it to caffeine-loving customers.

The powder, which is made with broccoli that is too "ugly" to sell, aims to minimise vegetable wastage.

Scientist say just two spoons of this broccoli powder in your morning coffee would be the equivalent of one serve of vegetables.

“With a rising trend in healthy eating across the board, Australian growers are always looking at ways to diversify their products and cut waste while meeting consumer demand, ” he said.

Research conducted by CSIRO found that 51 per cent of Australians were not consuming the recommended amount of fruit and vegetables per day, and they hope the powder will make it easier for those who are on the go to get their nutrients. The stuff is made of 100 percent whole broccoli, and its creators say the pre-treatment and drying processes used allow the end product to retain the natural color, flavor and nutrients of the fresh vegetable. CSIRO's Mary Ann Augustin, lead researcher, said the broccoli was high in protein and fibre, and health-promoting bioactive phytochemicals.

The powder can also benefit farmers who want to produce "value-added vegetable ingredients for the lucrative functional food markets", Augustin said.

"The CSIRO team and Hort Innovation are discussing potential commercial applications with produce growers and grower groups across Australia who are interested in getting the powder on the market".

"Australians don't eat enough vegetables and farmers across Australia will have access to an alternative market whilst improving farm yields and sustainability".
