Polyphenol and Caffeine Concentrations Found in Lipton White Tea with Blueberry and Pomegranate Graduate Degree/ Major: MS Food & Nutritional Sciences

  title={Polyphenol and Caffeine Concentrations Found in Lipton White Tea with Blueberry and Pomegranate Graduate Degree/ Major: MS Food \& Nutritional Sciences},
  author={Connie Galep},
The popularity of tea has stood the test of time. Today, tea is enjoyed around the world and its consumption reflects local preference and tradition. For the past three decades, epidemiologists have observed lower risks of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis in populations that drink tea frequently. The purpose of the study was to identify and quantify polyphenolic and methylxanthine concentrations in Lipton White Tea flavored with Blueberry and Pomegranate at different steeping… 


Efficacy of a green tea extract rich in catechin polyphenols and caffeine in increasing 24-h energy expenditure and fat oxidation in humans.
The green tea extract may play a role in the control of body composition via sympathetic activation of thermogenesis, fat oxidation, or both and promotes fat oxidation beyond that explained by its caffeine content per se.
Beneficial Effects of Green Tea—A Review
Although all the evidence from research on green tea is very promising, future studies are necessary to fully understand its contributions to human health, and advise its regular consumption in Western diets, in which green tea consumption is nowadays limited and sporadic.
Green tea composition, consumption, and polyphenol chemistry.

The present results suggest that slowly drinking tea is a very effective way of delivering rather high concentrations of catechins to the oral cavity and then the esophagus.
Cholesterol-lowering effect of a theaflavin-enriched green tea extract: a randomized controlled trial.
The theaflavin-enriched green tea extract studied is an effective adjunct to a low-saturated-fat diet to reduce LDL-C in hypercholesterolemic adults and is well tolerated.
The Effect of Consuming Instant Black Tea on Postprandial Plasma Glucose and Insulin Concentrations in Healthy Humans
The 1.0g tea drink reduced the late phase plasma glucose response in healthy humans with a corresponding increase in insulin, which may indicate that the attenuation in postprandial glycemia was achieved as a result of an elevated insulin response following stimulation of pancreatic β-cells.
Green tea extract improves running endurance in mice by stimulating lipid utilization during exercise.
The results suggest that the endurance-improving effects of GTE were mediated, at least partly, by increased metabolic capacity and utilization of fatty acid as a source of energy in skeletal muscle during exercise.
Hypocholesterolemic effects of Chinese tea.
Analysis of catechin levels in tea extracts showed that the individual catechu component in Chinese Green tea and Jasmine tea were significantly higher than the others, which may account for their hypocholesterolemic effect.
Polyphenols in foods are more complex than often thought.

Current knowledge regarding the reaction mechanisms involved in some of these processes and the structures of the resulting products is reviewed, and their effects on organoleptic and nutritional quality are also discussed.
Inhibition of Salivary Amylase by Black and Green Teas and Their Effects on the Intraoral Hydrolysis of Starch
The hypothesis that tea consumption can be effective in reducing the cariogenic potential of starch-containing foods such as crackers and cakes is supported.
