This freshwater algae is characterised above all by its extraordinarily high chlorophyll content and the unique chlorella growth factor (CGF) contained in its cell nucleus. Different methods of cultivation and production (e.g., cultivation in glass-roofed basins, open-air basins with direct sunlight or in light-flooded glass tubes) can influence factors such as flavour, chlorophyll and amino acid production, as well as the algae's final nutrient profile. We offer chlorella from a variety of cultivation methods, each sourced from the world's best producers for each technique.
This freshwater algae, also known as Arthrospira platensis, is actually a type of cyanobacterium (also called blue-green algae). It is characterised above all by its extraordinarily high nutrient density and rich phycocyanin content, a plant pigment which gives the blue-green algae its naturally blue undertone. We offer spirulina from a variety of different cultivation methods. Each sourced from the world's leading producers, every individual technique brings its own unique set of advantages to the final product.
Organic AFA from Klamath Lake
Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, or AFA for short, is Latin for "invisible flower of water". This unicellular blue-green microalgae is considered one of the most important superfoods. We source our organic AFA from an ancient strain which still grows wild in the pristine waters of Upper Klamath Lake, one of the best sources of AFA worldwide.
Ecklonia is a genus of kelp found prevalently in the Pacific Ocean. The brown algae is a well-known and popular ingredient in the local cuisines of southwestern Japan and Korea as well as of southeastern China, where it thrives in clear coastal regions. The bicyclis (also known as arame) and cava strains are particularly rich in phlorotannins, valuable polyphenols found largely in brown algae.
Fucoidan is a sulphated polysaccharide from brown algae found predominantly in the Fucus genus. These strains thrive in areas far away from environmental pollution, such as Tasmania, Patagonia and Nova Scotia. Our Fucus algae is cultivated naturally and sustainably without any fertilisers or plant protection products.
