Special Issue "Tea Polyphenols and Antioxidants: Analysis, Chemistry and Biotechnological Applications"
A special issue of Antioxidants (ISSN 2076-3921).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2016).
Tea is regarded as the second most popular drink aside from water. There is enormous interest in tea and tea extracts as healthful beverages, ingredients, and nutraceuticals. Some emergent evidence suggests that tea consumption is linked with decreasing oxidative stress and a host of health benefits affecting virtually all eight systems of the human body. The high levels of natural antioxidants from tea leaves (~30% dried weight basis) provides an opportunity for novel food formulations with improved shelf-life and safety.
This Special Issue of Antioxidants is intended to focus attention on the most current developments and advances related to tea phenols and antioxidants; in vitro and in vivo analysis, metabolism, extraction, biotechnology, processing effects, and suggested applications. As Guest editor, I am inviting you to consider submitting your next paper, report, literature review on tea antioxidants to the proposed Special Issue.
Dr. Richard Owusu-Apenten
