“Consumers understand very well the concept of the health benefits from drinking tea or consuming other tea products,” said Shiming Li, a senior scientist at WellGen, Inc., who reported on the new study with Professor Chi-Tang Ho, a professor in the department of food science at Rutgers, and his colleagues. “However, there is a huge gap between the perception that tea consumption is healthy and the actual amount of the healthful nutrients — polyphenols — found in bottled tea beverages. Our analysis of tea beverages found that the polyphenol content is extremely low.”
