tCatechins are a group of polyphenolic compounds that extensively occur in the plants. They are widely used asnutraceutical for enhancing human health, pharmaceutical formulations and in ointments or cosmetics for increas-ing the product shelf life. Catechins can be extracted, isolated from plant sources and delivered in suitable form.Extraction/isolation of catechins and making into stable deliverable form is a challenging task in view of their pooroxidative stability. This review gives an outline of various sources of catechin, their health and physico-chemicalproperties, extraction and various methods of encapsulation to produce stable deliverable form. Also, it gives theplatform to improve the methods of extraction/isolation and development of suitable encapsulation method.
