Perfect for Drinking and Baking: Although the flavor profile is different from traditional Matcha, Bakers Blend Culinary Matcha is perfect for drinking since it is still premium quality tea. But the main use of this Matcha is to enhance your baked treats. This means you can safely use it in cakes, cookies, pies, bread, and cupcakes in order to infuse them with the minerals and vitamins contained in this green powder.
Keeps the Body Healthy and Young: Culinary grade Matcha has pretty much the same health benefits as ceremonial grade Matcha. This tea is considered a “superfood.” And compared to other teas on the market, Matcha has been shown to contain a significant amount of antioxidants, which are known for their anti-aging effects and their ability to protect the body from infections and chronic diseases.
Weight Loss Aid: Matcha has been known to help people with weight loss, thanks to catechins known as EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate). Matcha has a significantly high concentration of EGCG, which aids in weight loss by increasing the rate at which the body burns calories while also minimizing appetite. This is helpful because you can create healthy baked treats that also have a positive effect on the way the body burns calories.
Better than Coffee: Matcha does a better job at keeping the mind and body alert and energized than coffee, thanks to an amino acid known as L-Theanine. Coffee is known to give people a good jolt, but this is often followed by what many call the “post-caffeine drowsiness” or a “crash”. Matcha does not have this side-effect. So you can bake with it, or even add it to your smoothies without worry about an after effect.
