Recent developments on polyphenol–protein interactions: effects on tea and coffee taste, antioxidant properties and the digestive system.
This review summarizes the recent trends and patterns (2005 onwards) in polyphenol-protein interaction studies focusing on the characterization of the complex, the effect of this complex formation on tea and coffee taste, antioxidant properties and the digestive system.
The Impact of Coffee on Health.
There is also evidence that decaffeinated coffee may, in some respect, have similar benefits as regular coffee, indicating that besides caffeine other components contribute to the health protecting effects.
Molecular mechanisms of the anti-obesity effect of bioactive compounds in tea and coffee.
The results have shown decreased lipid accumulation in cells via the regulation of the cell cycle during adipogenesis, changes in transcription factors and lipogenesis-related proteins in the adipose tissue of animal models, and decreased body weight and visceral fat in humans.
Changes in bioactive compounds and antioxidant activity of plant-based foods by gastrointestinal digestion: a review
The release of phenolic compounds and change in their bioActivities examined through in vitro simulated gastrointestinal digestion could provide information on the biological potency of bioactive components, which will allow us to elucidate their metabolic pathways and bioactivities at target sites.
In vitro assessment of potential intestinal absorption of some phenolic families and carboxylic acids from commercial instant coffee samples.
Hydroxycinnamic acids, flavonols, and carboxylic acids have been studied in the samples of instant coffee commercialized in Spain, finding that a great part of them can remain in the gut, acting as potential in situ antioxidants.
Influence of formulation and processing on absorption and metabolism of flavan-3-ols from tea and cocoa.
An understanding of how food matrices may influence flavan-3-ol absorption will provide a framework to design and develop functional products that positively affect flava-3,ol absorption and, by extension, potential bioactivity.
Altered Transport and Metabolism of Phenolic Compounds in Obesity and Diabetes: Implications for Functional Food Development and Assessment.
The translation of benefits derived from dietary phenolic compounds to individuals with obesity or diabetes may require the consideration of dosing strategies or be accompanied by adjunct therapies to improve the bioavailability of these compounds.
Potential health benefits of (poly)phenols derived from fruit and 100% fruit juice.
The aim of this narrative review was to provide an overview of fruit (poly)phenols and their potential health benefits and to elucidate protective mechanisms and align with processing and consumer products.


Addition of Milk Does Not Alter the Antioxidant Activity of Black Tea
It is suggested that addition of milk may not obviate the ability ofblack tea to modulate the antioxidant status of subjects and that consumption of black tea with/without milk prevents oxidative damage in vivo.
Common tea formulations modulate in vitro digestive recovery of green tea catechins.
Evidence is provided that tea consumption practices and formulation factors likely impact catechin digestive recovery and may result in diverse physiological profiles.
Dietary intake and bioavailability of polyphenols.
Both chemical and biochemical factors that affect the absorption and metabolism of polyphenols are reviewed, with particular emphasis on flavonoid glycosides.
Phenolic compounds in coffee
Phenolic compounds are secondary metabolites generally involved in plant adaptation to environmental stress conditions. Chlorogenic acids (CGA) and related compounds are the main components of the
Absorption of phenolic acids in humans after coffee consumption.
The absorption in humans of phenolic acid from coffee, a common beverage particularly rich in bound phenolic acids, such as caffeic acid, ferulic acid, and p-coumaric acid is studied.
Coffee and Health: A Review of Recent Human Research
Current available evidence suggests that it may be prudent for pregnant women to limit coffee consumption to 3 cups/d providing no more than 300 mg/d of caffeine to exclude any increased probability of spontaneous abortion or impaired fetal growth, and there is little evidence that coffee consumption increases the risk of cancer.
Catechin Content of 18 Teas and a Green Tea Extract Supplement Correlates With the Antioxidant Capacity
The large variation in flavanol content and ORAC value among various brands and types of tea provides critical information for investigators using tea in studies of nutrition and cancer prevention.
Effect of tea phenolics and their aromatic fecal bacterial metabolites on intestinal microbiota.

Drug metabolism and microbial metabolism of green tea catechins in in vitro systems and in animals and in humans will be reviewed and the factors affecting their biotransformation and bioavailability are covered.
Coffee drinking influences plasma antioxidant capacity in humans.
It is argued that uric acid is the main component responsible for the plasma AC increase after tea drinking, whereas molecules other than uric Acid (probably phenolic compounds) are likely to beresponsible for the increase in plasma AC after coffee drinking.
