Nutrimeal Green Tea & Kiwi Recipe

Oct 19, 2016 0 comments

Matcha literally means “powdered tea.” When you order traditional green tea, components from the leaves get infused into the hot water, and then the leaves are discarded. With matcha, you’re drinking the actual leaves, which have been finely powdered.

Benefits of Matcha

Matcha is made from high-quality tea, and the whole leaves are ingested, so it’s a more potent source of nutrients than steeped green tea. In addition to providing small amounts of vitamins and minerals, matcha is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols. These antioxidants have been tied to protection against heart disease and cancer, as well as better blood sugar regulation, blood pressure reduction, and anti-aging. Another polyphenol in matcha called EGCG has been shown in research to boost metabolism, and slow or halt the growth of cancer cells.

Where can I find it?

Matcha can be purchased online, at health stores and certain Asian supermarkets. It is one of my favourite ingredients to use for baking and drinking.

Here is a favourite Nutrimeal recipe made with matcha powder and kiwifruit.
