Extremely High Antioxidant Concentrate Can Now Be Extracted From Tea
Green Cell Technologies say they've produced extracts with a very high Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) value.
South African company Green Cell Technologies claims to have created a super-antioxidant extract from tea with an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) value of 1,700,000 per 100g. This is the highest known commercially extracted ORAC value from any plant material and could be a radical breakthrough in antioxidant health supplements.
According to Beverage Daily, the company says its Dynamic Cell Disruption method has enabled it to produce these green tea and rooibos tea extracts. This destabilises the structures of the plant cells and releases all of the actives instead of just part of them.
