Kemin launches water-extracted green tea powder
Kemin Health has launched a green tea powder for the dietary supplements market it says retains the composition and antioxidant profile of brewed green tea and provides an alternative to solvent-based extracts.

AssuriTEA Green is 100 percent water-extracted, said Linda Fullmer, senior vice president of Kemin Industries’ Health division.

“The growing safety and regulatory issues, worldwide, associated with some green tea extracts encouraged us to develop an all-natural alternative to the solvent-based tea extracts.”

Gentle water extraction process

Kemin added: “Solvent tea extracts typically offer a concentrated formulation of a single constituent of the tea leaf. With AssuriTEA Green, a gentle water extraction process is used to ensure the ingredient offers the full spectrum of green tea polyphenols: EGCG, non-EGCG catechins and non-catechin antioxidants."

AssuriTEA Green is the second product released under Kemin’s AssuriTEA brand and follows the September 2010 launch of AssuriTEA Wellbeing, a proprietary blend of green and black teas.

Kemin Health - which is best known for its FloraGLO lutein ingredient and Slendesta weight management ingredient – is a division of Kemin Industries, which is based in Des Moines, Iowa.
