An independent panel of experts has determined that Kemin Health’s AssuriTEA Green is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use in food and beverages.

The water-extracted ingredient can now be targeted at the food and beverage industry for use in products such as cereal, nutrition and energy bars, soft drinks, sports and isotonic drinks, energy beverages, fruit and vegetable juices, meal replacements and soft candies, said the firm.

“We look forward to working with food and beverage companies to offer consumers an all-natural green tea extract that provides the full antioxidant benefits of brewed green tea,” ​said Alex Fink, marketing director for the human nutrition and health division at Kemin.

“Brewed green tea has been consumed safely for centuries and is widely recognized for its antioxidant and diverse health benefits. Including AssuriTEA Green in food and beverage products will make it even easier for consumers to receive the healthful benefits of brewed green tea.”

According to the company, AssuriTEA Green provides naturally high levels of polyphenols and catechins for a superior source of dietary antioxidants. By using a water extraction, the ingredient retains the natural composition and antioxidant profile of brewed green tea.
