Green Coffee Bean Extract

Introduction:

Green coffee beans(GCB) are coffee beans that have not yet been roasted. The roasting process of coffee beans reduces amounts of the chemical chlorogenic acid, Therefore, green coffee beans have a higher level of chlorogenic acid compared to regular, roasted coffee beans. Thanks to the chlorogenic acids, green coffee extract is gaining popularity as a novel ingredient for weight management products.


Specifications:

Chlorogenic acids 45%~70%

Custom water extraction

Custom decaffeination


Total chlorogenic acids:

Chlorogenic acid (CGA) is a hydroxycinnamate, a family of naturally occurring organic compounds. These are esters of cinnamic acids (caffeic acid, ferulic acid and p-coumaric acid) and (-)-quinic acid. Chlorogenic acids are the compounds of esters formed between quinic acid and certain trans-cinnamic acids, most commonly caffeic, ferulic and p-coumaric. Chlorogenic acids are found in plants but green coffee bean is remarkably rich, up to approximately 10% on dry basis, which including at least 45 chlorogenic acids that are not acylated at Clof the quinic acid moiety
