It is not uncommon for consumers to ask what is Chlorella powder.
As of now, Chlorella powder is use mostly as a nutraceutical dietary supplement in the U.S.
It might one day become a superfood since it carries a punch of nutrients including 60% algal protein plus lipids, fiber, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. It has traditionally been grown in Taiwan and Japan.
It is a non-GMO, gluten-free ingredient and self-affirmed GRAS, as long as it is used in its intended purpose.
The Taiwan Chlorella Powder, which SPI Group distributes, is produced from the freshwater green algae, Chlorella sorokiniana. This Chlorella sorokiniana is grown in freshwater, using nutrients and natural sunlight (not in fermentation tanks which use glucose and acetic acid).
Taiwan Chlorella Powder is a cracked-cell wall Chlorella powder which provides more benefits than whole cell Chlorella, due to the increased availability of nutrients. It also has a fresh and natural taste.
Our Taiwan Chlorella Powder is not exposed to high temperatures. This is because high temperatures will destroy or alter the beneficial molecules.
It is available in conventional and Organic Certified versions.
In various parts of the world, including the U.S., Chlorella has been used as an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, for body cleansing, lowering cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure, improve the immune system, relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia and speeding up wound healing. The FDA has not evaluated the claims and this dietary supplement ingredient is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
It has also been used in skin care creams and tested overseas in food, like in spaghetti noodles.
