Green tea is well known for its health properties--such as weight control, reducing body fat and improving heart health-- and has been used for detoxifying the body and its overall good health. EpiGalloCatechin Gallate (EGCG) is one of the active components of green tea. Using patented and innovative technology, DSM Nutritional Products extracts EGCG from green tea, resulting in TEAVIGO[tm], a natural compound with an ECGC content of 94%. The product is a nearly colorless, off-white powder that is completely water-soluble, resulting in a clear solution. Furthermore, it does not have the bitter taste common in other green tea formulations. High flowability makes it well suited for sensitive applications and improves manufacturing efficiency.
