Matcha Powder NZ

NZ Protein's Matcha Green Tea is matcha powder - a metabolism boosting, fat burning superfood and powerful antioxidant.

Matcha is reported to have the nutritional value of up to 10 cups of regular green tea and up to 137 times more antioxidants than regular green tea.

Matcha literally means "powdered tea." With matcha green tea, you’re drinking the actual leaves, which have been dried and then stone ground into a fine powder.

To make matcha tea, plants are covered with shade cloths before they’re harvested. This increases chlorophyll content and creates a vibrant green colour that's rich in antioxidants.

Because matcha is made from high-quality tea, and the whole leaves are ingested, it’s a more potent source of nutrients than regular green tea.

Benefits

Matcha contains a unique and potent class of antioxidant known as catechins. Among antioxidants, catechins are the most beneficial as they may offer protection against heart disease and cancer, and may be beneficial for blood sugar regulation, blood pressure reduction, and anti-aging.

One specific catechin called Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCg) makes up 60% of the catechins in matcha. Of all the antioxidants, EGCg is the most widely recognised for its metabolism boosting and cancer fighting properties.

EGCg and other catechins counteract the effects of free radicals from the likes of pollution, UV rays, radiation, and chemicals, which can lead to cell and DNA damage.

Matcha contains over 100 times more EGCg than any other tea on the market.

Directions

Mix 2 grams (1/2 teaspoon) in with your protein shake or smoothie to give it a superfood kick. It can be used as an ingredient in both sweet and savory dishes, in everything from matcha muffins, brownies and puddings, to matcha soup, stir frys, and even matcha guacamole!

It can also be made into tea by adding hot water and whisking it until frothy.

Knew very little about matcha. Tried and like it. Mental clarity. I mix it with beetroot.

needs to be a higher grade and needs to be powdered so that there is no sediment happening. Try to am for ceremonial grade and state the exact elements and use. It was really bitter can’t wait to test it in a recipe to test this properly. NZPROTEIN REPLY: WE'RE A PROTEIN COMPANY, NOT A FINE TEA COMPANY. IT HAS THE SAME NUTRITIONAL VALUE BUT IT'S FOR PROTEIN BASED SMOOTHIES AT FAR LESS COST
