Pregnant and green tea

  1. Green tea is originally widely consumed in China and Japan, but nowadays green tea is also consumed in the west. In 2010, almost ten percent of tea imported into the Netherlands consisted of green tea. One of the reasons for this increased popularity is the healthy image of green tea. Green tea certainly has many healthy aspects, but it also has certain disadvantages. For example, drinking several cups of green tea per day by pregnant women could have serious adverse consequences for the unborn child, such as lung and heart problems or even the death of the child. In addition, green tea contains caffeine, which may only be drunk to a limited extent during pregnancy.

Caffeine in Green Tea

  1. Green tea, like black tea and coffee, contains caffeine. The caffeine content in tea depends on the strength of the tea. In general, green tea contains about half the amount of caffeine in black tea. The caffeine content in coffee is about four times the caffeine content of green tea. While there is still a lot of uncertainty about caffeine during pregnancy, the Nutrition Center recommends a maximum caffeine intake of one hundred milligrams per day for pregnant women. This equates to about five cups of green tea per day. But beware, because if you also consume coffee, energy drinks, black tea or other caffeinated products, you can exceed the maximum recommendation with just one cup of tea.
