Food Myths Busted

Green tea doesn’t contain caffeine

You’re trying to reduce your caffeine intake and you think green tea is the answer because it’s caffeine-free, right? Contrary to what you may think, green tea is not a herbal tea and it contains caffeine (between 10-50mg). Like all tea, the amount of caffeine in green tea is influenced by brewing, preparation and the quantity of leaves used.

Truth of the matter: Green tea contains about the same amount of caffeine as black tea. It is also a rich source of Flavonoids, which act as antioxidants and have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease. Enjoy a maximum 2-3 cups of tea (or any caffeine-containing drinks) a day.
