A stability study of green tea catechins during the biscuit making process

Author: Amber Sharma and Weibiao Zhou

A green tea extract (GTE) was incorporated into biscuit as a source of tea catechins. The stability of tea catechins in the biscuit making process was studied. A method was developed for the separation and quantification of tea catechins in GTE, dough, and biscuit samples using a RP-HPLC system. GTEs at 150, 200, and 300 mg per 100 g of flour were formulated. The results obtained showed that green tea catechins were relatively stable in dough. The stability of (−)-EGCG and (−)-ECG was determined at an interval of every 2 min during baking. Their stability decreased as the baking progressed and increased as the concentration of GTE was increased in the biscuit dough. The stability of (−)-EGCG also increased as pH of the dough was reduced and made less alkaline.
