Instant Teas

Normally instant tea powder contains just the dehydrated flavour, aroma and colour compounds found in tea leaves. But “real” and healthy instant tea is made of green tea extract, so it contains all the natural flavour of the whole green tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant. These instant teas contain all polyphenols and catechins found in green tea. This kind of tea is well suited for a quick preparation and it is sometimes called soluble tea as the powder easily dissolves in water (hot or cold).

Taiyo´s EGCg alternatives

Epigallocatechin- gallate (EGCg) is the main catechin in green tea and provides many health benefits. High EGCg intake (>800 mg/day), either in pure form or in form of green tea extracts, especially consumed on an empty stomach can cause side effects such as liver inflammation. Therefore, the EFSA regulated EGCg in pure form as approved NOVEL FOOD (Novel Food Regulation EU 2017/2470) and EGCg containing green tea extracts in the EU regulation No. 2022/2340. Both regulations limit the daily dosage of EGCg and requires labelling warnings for EGCg.
