This book provides a comprehensive overview of the recent developments in the flavor and chemistry of caffeinated beverages.

Caffeinated Beverages includes an update on the chemistry and flavor research on coffee, tea, and cocoa, specifically addressing antioxidantive phenolic compounds found in the beverages, and an examination of the health benefits, such as the anticancer, anti-aging, and heart disease prevention properties of these beverages.
