Green Nutritionals Yaeyama Pacifica Chlorella Powder 250g
When using plant based superfoods it is important to know that your are purchasing a trustworthy product whose benefits are un-affected by pollution, destructive processing and poor packaging. We looked extensively at the different Chlorella available and soon realised the superiority of Yaeyama Pacifica.
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.
The tropical climate of Ishigaki Island, 1000 km. south of the mainland, is ideally suited to Chlorella cultivation. Clean air and fresh mountain spring water make for a complete absence of harmful contaminants. Chemical analysis shows Yaeyama Pacifica to have no detectable levels of mercury, lead, pesticide and herbicide. Unlike some Chlorella, Yaeyama Pacifica is grown outdoors in 45metre controlled ponds allowing the Chlorella full benefit of the strong tropical sunlight.
JET-SPRAY CELL WALL TECHNOLOGY
Chlorella has a hard indigestible cell wall, which has to be opened to allow its abundant nutrients to be absorbed. Some producers use chemical bleaching, heat treatments or milling to 'crack' the hard wall – these harsh treatments can have a detrimental effect on the valuable nutrients within.
Yaeyama Pacifica Chlorella undergoes a unique WaterJet-Spray Cell Wall Technology developed by the grower, to gently open the cell wall for a high 82% digestibility, delivering potency, purity and mild taste.
