Innovation of the technology

The present invention relates to a beverage, in particular to a soft beverage, and a method for its preparation. The invention further relates to a method for modifying an existing beverage, in particular an existing soft beverage.

An extensive range of beverages are known and available commercially, including both alcoholic and non-alcoholic or so-called "soft" beverages. The beverages are available in a wide range of different flavors. Beverages may be still or carbonated. However, in addition to providing users with a variety of flavors and tastes, it would also be useful to provide a beverage that produces different sensations in the mouth when drunk. In this regard, the use of the fruit of chili plants provides a way of introducing a different sensation into a beverage.


According to the present invention, there is provided in a first aspect, a beverage comprising:

• a flavored component,
• water,
• a heat-providing component comprising a capsaicinoid composition extracted from the fruit of a plant of the genus Capsaicum such that he heat-providing component does not contain a substantial flavor of the fruit.
