Green tea is abundantly enriched with polyphenols which includes: flavanols, catechin (C), epicatechin (EC), gallocatechin (GC), epigallocatechin(EGC), catechin 3-O-gallate (CG), gallocatechin 3-O-gallate(GCG), epicatechin 3-O-gallate (ECG) and epigallo catechin3-O-gallate (EGCG). Polyphenols is of great nutraceutcal importance. Microencapsulation is an enduring technology for protection and controlled release of green tea polyphenols. Spray drying is a well-established method for converting liquid food into a dry powder form and it is one of the most common and economical method employed for microencapsulation. This paper reviews about the health benefits of green tea and its scope of microencapsulation.

Key words: Green tea,Polyphenols, Microencapsulation, Spray drying.
