1. Product feature
Because of its favorable color, taste and fragrance, Matcha contains large variety of healthy elements such as catechin and vitamins that have been widely used for healthy products and many kinds of processed food.
However, the discoloration during the processing and storage period had been a concern for the manufactures.
Now, we have finally developed a brand new product to solve the problem. "Matcha MT21" preserves the brilliant green tone without losing its original taste and color.
2. Competitiveness of product
1. Matcha color stays longer: MT-21 preserves its brilliant green during storage and processing period and delays discoloration.
2. Clearness of color: MT-21 can produce clearer color and higher quality than existing Matcha in the same grade.
3. Keep the flavor: MT-21 does not contain any other external ingredients such as chlorella.
※confirmed the feature of the raw material powdered green tea
4. Easy to mix: MT-21 hardly produces lumps out of a mixture to increase the efficiency and productivity of food processing.
5. Improvement of property: MT-21 can prevent aging of starch, stretch of noodles and keep moisture of the product by the function of trehalose. Trehalose also lowers moisture absorbency and keeps its quality during the storage.

 Message from president
Before we developed MT-21, we had a lot of problems in food processing using conventional green tea powder. It has been difficult to measure accurately due to scattering, hard to mix uniformly. And it has been easily getting lumpy due to the bad solubility. The vivid green color of the matcha faded for a short period. The quality, taste and fragrance were also deteriorated by heat.
MT-21 could dramatically solve the problems by making full use of functionality of trehalose. By combining with trehalose, MT-21 enables us to enjoy matcha less sweeter, healthier taste and made vibrant matcha color last longer.
When used in baked goods, they can be baked in more beautiful green color. The green tea sweets and cakes are finished fuzzy keeping moist, rich flavor and fragrance of matcha. Please try and make full use of MT-21 to make your product more competitive and unique in the expanding matcha processed foods market.
