Chlorella is a genus of single-cell green algae belonging to the phylum Chlorophyta and is abundant in minerals and vitamins
It is spherical in shape, about 2 to 10 μm in diameter and it multiplies rapidly, requiring only carbon dioxide, water, sunlight, and a small amount of minerals to reproduce.
It is described as a ‘green food’ – a group of products derived from other microalgae – and contains important phytochemicals that protect and fight against disease, as well as protein, beta-carotene, amino acids, vitamins and minerals.
It is a potential food source because it is high in protein and other essential nutrients; when dried, it is about 45% protein, 20% fat, 20% carbohydrate, 5% fibre, and 10% minerals and vitamins.
Mass-production methods are now being used to cultivate it in large artificial circular ponds.
Our Chlorella is broken/ cracked cell wall for optimal absorption when ingested.
