Podcast 023: Compounds in Japanese Powdered Teas

my japanese green tea podcastNoli Ergas from Sugimoto America tells us the results from the analysis of their powdered teas: high and low grade matcha, houjicha powder and genmaicha powder.

How much calories, caffeine, L-theanine and catechins are in each powdered tea? Is the ORAC value useful when deciding what healthy foods to eat?

We get answers for this questions and more in this episode.

    Ricardo, thanks for posting.
    I must make two corrections!
    – 9 calories are in 1g of fat
    – I use 2 teaspoons (4g) of matcha for a smoothie (DON’T use 2 tablespoons (12g)! It will probably taste terrible and will have a lot of caffeine!)

  2. Hi Noli

    Thanks for the corrections. Yeah, 2 tablespoons sound like a lot of matcha 🙂
