As well as being rich in carotenoids and chlorophyll, Chlorella contains vitamin A, all the B's, C and E. It is also packed with minerals including potassium, zinc, magnesium, iron and calcium. It contains around 55% complete balanced protein.
The Yaeyama strain of Chlorella was originally found on Ishigaki Island where it is still grown today and is unique to Yaeyama Pacifica. Over forty years this strain has been improved to deliver excellent flavour and nutritional profile. Total carotenoid and RNA levels, for example, are higher than in competitor products.
Yaeyama Chlorella as a freshwater microalgae is not grown in the ocean. Both are grown on the land in environmentally controlled food-grade ponds where the fresh water quality and purity of the microalgae species can be maintained. Since the Fukishima disaster occurred, continuous independent testing on both Hawaiian Spirulina and Yaeyama Chlorella have shown no detectable radiation.
