Santé launches new cappuccino infused with Sante Barley Coffee Mix

FOR THE barista experience at home in an instant, there is the new Barliccino, a cappuccino plus Santé Barley Coffee Mix that offers a healthier and tastier choice than the usual pricey “coffee-shop” brew. As the latest coffee drink mix from Santé, a provider of premier organic health and wellness products and services, Barliccino brings the coffee-shop quality experience in an instant. Barliccino is mostly sweetened using Stevia, a natural substitute for sugar, derived from the leaves of a small perennial green shrub. In every cup of Barliccino, there is only a minimal amount of sugar (1.63 grams), a lot lesser compared to a regular instant coffee’s sugar content, which is around 12 to 15 grams per serving. It also has low-calorie content (52 calories) and contains non-dairy creamer. Barliccino is also infused with organic pure barley grass from Santé, known to be certified by BioGro, New Zealand’s leading organic certification agency. Barley grass is an antioxidant and is rich in vitamins and minerals. To learn more about Barliccino and Santé, visit its website at
