Starbucks’ new Essential Vitamins blend will offer five B vitamins, including B1, B3, B5, B12, and biotin blended into their classic house roast. B1 is possibly better known as thiamine, B5 is another name for pantothenic acid, while B12 is known as just that.
In the general population, B-vitamin deficiencies are extremely common, so it makes sense that Starbucks would home in on the many forms for their Essential Vitamins rollout. For plant-based eaters, the inclusion of B12 is especially relevant, as it can be particularly common in those diets.
The other new release taps into an herb that’s no stranger to the world of morning beverages (golden milk, anyone?). Turmeric is a powerful herb with anti-inflammatory benefits and a gorgeous golden hue, which can also help boost your immune system among other benefits. The blend also packs the antioxidant power of cinnamon and all the gut health benefits of ginger, which will also complement the flavor of your morning cup.
While this launch is for Starbucks brew-at-home options, maybe this means the brand will add more super beverages to their cafe menus soon. They already have a turmeric latte in some U.K. stores, and there’s evidence of increased plant-based options coming, but we’re curious to see what’s next.
