Black tea has been reported to have significant antimutagenic and anticarcinogenic properties associated with its polyphenol content theaflavins (TF) and thearubigins (TR). Similarly, Turkish black tea (TBT) also contains a considerable amount of TF and TR.
The mutagenic and antimutagenic effects were investigated in vitro on Salmonella strains.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
