Superfood 101: Chlorella

What is Chlorella Powder?

Chlorella (Chlorella Vulgaris) is an emerald green, single-celled freshwater algae that grows in the fresh waters of Australia and Southeast Asia, as well as naturally in lakes and ponds..

Our high purity powder comes directly from the entire algae plant which is hand harvested, dried at low temperatures, and then carefully milled into fine powder. This process retains the high nutritional value of the spirulina and allows for maximum digestion and absorption when consumed.

What does Chlorella Powder taste like?

Chlorella has a strong earthy taste and most consumers add it to recipes or put it in swallowable capsules.

Why Chlorella Powder?

Traditionally, Chlorella was used as a primary food source of protein and as a way to detoxify, or cleanse, the body. Our chlorella powder has cracked cell walls to give your body powerful natural energy and a treasure trove of protein, fiber, carotenoids, minerals, and Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, and Vitamin

What is the difference between Chlorella Powder and Spirulina?

Chlorella is another form of algae that is sometimes confused with spirulina. The fundamental difference between spirulina and chlorella is that spirulina is many thousands of years older and does not possess the hard cell wall that makes chlorella closer to being a plant than algae.

    I am also worried about products from China where there has been so much contamination and pollution, especially in water where spirulina or chlorella is grown. How can we be sure your products from China are free of harmful pollutants? Can’t you get any grown in the US, as in Hawaii?
