Chemical Information
FooDB NameTheaflavin 3'-gallate
DescriptionConstituent of black tea and commercial oolong tea Theaflavin-3-gallate is a theaflavin derivative.; Theaflavin-3-gallate is a theaflavins (a black tea extract) complex. It is one of the major black tea polyphenols. Research results show that it may be responsible for the chemopreventive activity in black tea extracts (PMID: 11103814). Theaflavin 3'-gallate is found in tea, german camomile, and peppermint.
