New Research Findings Give Major Boost to Britain’s Coffee Culture 

Why do British people cherish coffee that much? I am sure every Briton has their own reasons, with some, like the beverage’s refreshing taste, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and being a stress minimizer, being common to many people. In fact, some people even believe that the United Kingdom is gradually becoming a country of over-caffeinated coffee fanatics.

A Review of Past Research by Scientists at the University of Southampton Reveals How Coffee Reduces the Risk of Early Death 

Coffee and caffeine are two things that have been at the centre of the wider health debate across the globe for at least the last century. Normally, what comes up in most of the discussions about caffeine is its pro and cons. Researchers at the University of Southampton recently conducted an extensive review of over 200 past studies on coffee, with their findings revealing that coffee is capable of tremendously lowering the risk of early death for humans.
Although coffee may be a beverage that fuels the world today, things haven’t always been like this. Among health-conscious persons, coffee has often been considered somewhat controversial.

However, the University of Southampton survey dismisses a majority of the most common fears people have had regarding coffee. Apart from considerably reducing the risk of early death, coffee also has myriad other health benefits.

Is Britain Really “Over-Caffeinated”?

According to the researchers, a daily consumption of 3-4 cups of coffee is ideal for the human body. British people drink up to 55 million cups of coffee per day, meaning that despite being branded “an over-caffeinated nation”, Britons still consume way less than one cup per person on average. If this survey is anything to go by then, Britons need to consider consuming more of the caffeinated beverage rather than less! Roasted coffee contains over 1,000 bioactive compounds, with some of them potentially being therapeutic, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-fibrotic and anti-cancer.

Roasting green coffee beans makes them undergo a complex chemical metamorphosis process that hugely boosts their biochemical composition. Your method of preparing coffee will also enhance this. According to the findings of the research that were released on November 22nd 2017, up to 7 cups of coffee a day could reduce the risk of all-cause mortality by an impressive 10%, though 3 cups per day is the ideal amount for optimum health benefits. The arguments here were based on two recently-released cohort studies that involved a total of 521,330 and 185,855 participants respectively, both groups studied for mean periods of 16 years independently.

Coffee and Cardiovascular Diseases 

Coffee also safeguards the body against many cardiovascular ailments, with a regular consumption of the beverage being persistently linked to lower levels of cardiovascular mortality. Coffee lowers the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and hypertension, with non-drinkers experiencing up to 16% higher risk of cardiovascular disease than drinkers.

What is even scarier is that this risk difference soars to a whopping 30% for strokes. Consuming an extra cup of coffee equally lowers the risk of myocardial infarction. Although cardiovascular diseases can be directly linked to 31% of deaths worldwide and 45% in Europe, the WHO says that most of them could be avoided if behavioural risk factors are sufficiently addressed.

Coffee Vs. Cancer and Liver Disease 

According to a meta-analysis of 40 cohort research studies, drinking coffee considerably diminishes the risk of cancer, with consumption of 3-4 cups being directly linked to lower incidences of endometrial, prostate, liver, oral and non-melanoma skin cancers, as well as melanoma and leukaemia. Coffee also reduces by up to 29% the risk of contracting non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, liver fibrosis by 27% and liver cirrhosis by 39%. The beverage also reduces the risk of death from cirrhosis, gout, gallstones and renal stones. Liver diseases are the 5th biggest cause of death in England and Wales.

Coffee Mitigates Against Metabolic Disorders 

Coffee has been intricately associated with metabolic disorders, with its consumption reducing the risk of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. In addition to reporting similar benefits, a joint 2016 study by Italy’s University of Palermo and University of Catania also highlighted the benefits of chlorogenic acids and polyphenols contained. The two organic agents have direct anti-hypertensive properties that enhance glucose and insulin levels in the blood. Metabolic syndrome is a lethal killer that manifests itself in the form of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity and insulin resistance. It is known as a “maladaptation to the modern world”.

Coffee Protects Against Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Diseases 

A Harvard University study published in 2015 examined potential coffee properties to mitigate against Parkinson’s disease initially highlighted by Dr Alberto Ascherio’s 2001 research. Indeed, coffee can reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease by nearly 50%. In the 10-year long Harvard study, 47,351 men and 88,565 women were surveyed, demonstrating caffeine’s positive impact on fighting Parkinson’s disease. In a study conducted by the Institute for Scientific Information and whose findings were released in 2016, consumption of coffee was reported as being able to lower by 27% the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Coffee drinkers also have fewer incidences of depression and cognitive disorders associated with Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s disease is the most prevalent type of dementia, affecting up to 62% of those diagnosed and has no cure. Currently, Britain has about 850,000 people affected by dementia, with this number projected to soar to more than 2 million by 2051. Globally, 46.8 million people are approximated to suffer from dementia.

Scyphus Responds To Growing Consumer Demand for Healthy Snacks at Social Events by Supplying Fresh Popcorn, Machines and Custom Popcorn Boxes

  Blog, News 

Imagine you’re animatedly chatting with long lost friends at a wedding party. In your hand, you’re holding a baby blue coloured popcorn box half filled with tasty salted popcorn. On the popcorn box is a custom message from the newlyweds inscribed in gold. The popcorn is still warm. A cool breeze sweeps through the venue and you catch a whiff of the different delicious popcorn recipes served today. Every guest at the wedding has their own baby blue gold inscribed popcorn box.

Popcorn was once considered a reserve for the cinema. Today, it’s one of the popular snacks served in many different social events and at home. Popcorn bars are fast becoming a hot trend in weddings across the UK and Europe. Huge corporations are opting to serve freshly popped popcorn as a treat for guests at events. Weight loss enthusiasts are eating popcorn to keep cravings at bay.


Popcorn is low in calories and rich in nutrients and fibre. It’s a versatile snack that can be consumed plain with a little dab of salt or, mixed with a variety of spices and ingredients to create a delicious taste bud flattering snack.

Studies show that consumers are opting for popcorn over traditional snacks like crisps

Peoples love for popcorn seems to keep growing and there’s research to back this up. The market research company recently reported that the popcorn industry is expected to grow by at least 7% each year until 2020. Research conducted by another market research company Eureka! supports this. The company reported that more women in their 20s and 30s are opting to buy popcorn compared to other snacks like crisps.

This change in snacking preferences and tastes hasn’t gone unnoticed by the branded paper cup and assorted accessories manufacturer Scyphus. For a long time, the company has been a market leader in the branded paper cup industry supplying their products to clients within the UK and across Europe.

Keeping in line with paper box manufacturing Scyphus has now ventured into the popcorn business. In a bold move, the company is tapping into an existing market that’s based on the growing demand for healthy and tasty snacks and, the need for personalised and branded items at social events.

Event organizers get easy way to personally reach everyone in their event

Scyphus embarked on an expansion drive that targeted event organisers. The move involves supplying delicious fresh popped popcorn at events served in custom popcorn boxes. It also involves renting out popcorn machines which are strategically places within event venues.

Few people can resist the sweet smell of freshly popped popcorn. Served at your event, your guests are sure to remember the occasion for years to come. Add in custom made popcorn boxes complete with your events theme colours and message and you’re sure to stamp your brand into your guests mind. Personally reaching each and every one in attendance at your event has never been easier.

This new offering from Scyphus opens up unlimited ways for event organisers to add a touch of fun and personalised branding messages that attendees will love. The company also employs an in house creative team that works alongside clients to create custom themed popcorn boxes for their events.

Your event attendees are likely to want popcorn served in a popcorn box

UK consumers are more health conscious and would pay more for healthy and organic food. The research company Mintel conducted a research whose findings show that 70% of snackers would want manufacturers to reduce sugar and salt content in snacks. Many would also prefer natural sugars like honey added to snacks over artificial sugars.

Fresh air-popped popcorn is as natural and organic as a snack can get. Besides the health benefits popcorn provides, many consumers eat this snack simply for the experience. Popcorn can be prepared in many different ways ranging from adding toppings like chocolate to preparing flavour filled recipes like the popular chilli popcorn. When prepared and served on the spot it will retain its sweet aroma and taste compared to when pre-prepared and packed.

Speaking of packaging, paper popcorn boxes are better preferred over the traditional popcorn tub. One reason for this is that the popcorn box is made using environment friendly recyclable material just like the tubs are too, but the major advantage is in easy storage, they come as plain unfolded stacks and the end user can fold and turn them into boxes easily when needed, thus requiring much less storage. Another reason is that the paper box is easy to customize and comes in different sizes. Finally, popcorn boxes are more cost effective.
