A new research conducted by Food scientist Dr. Quan Vuong has shown that microwaving tea is a good idea. According to the study, microwaving the beverage is the key to getting more health benefits out of it.
“Microwaving is one of the advanced technologies to get more bioactive compounds from the products,” he told ABC News.
Doing so activates compounds in the tea such as caffeine, theanine and polyphenol. From this, the antioxidant property of polyphenol is known for reducing the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
