Cambridge Commodities adds naturally sourced L-theanine

31-Jan-2022

Green tea usually provides between 30-50 mg of theanine per 2/3 cups, however, the quantity varies

Ingredients supplier Cambridge Commodities has expanded its range of branded ingredients to include TheaGreen, a natural source of the amino acid L-theanine.

Abbey Tyrrell, Product Innovation Executive said: “L-theanine is typically produced by chemical synthesis, so we wanted to create a range for customers that are looking to source L-theanine from green tea leaves.”

Green tea usually provides between 30-50 mg of theanine per 2/3 cups, however, the quantity varies. To help standardise the varying quantities, TheaGreen provides a concentrated and standardised dose of L-theanine in two strengths: 40% and 60%.
