Chlorella is an edible algae and a rich source of nutrients and antioxidants. It is also a great source of plant based protein, and is best eaten raw to avoid diminishing its precious nutritional value. The chlorella powder contains notes of the ocean and will contrast against the rich dark flavor of the cacao. Getting creative, like coating your popcorn, is just one of the many delicious ways to consume it!
