Why choose Chlorella Europe for Hawaiian Spirulina
A superior strain: for more than 25 years, Hawaiian
Spirulina has been adapting to the intense Hawaiian sun. These
conditions have given birth to a distinctive carotene-rich strain known
as Spirulina Pacifica, providing the highest levels of mixed
carotenoids, enzymes, phycobiliproteins and antioxidants of any
Spirulina in the world, including Vitamin B12.
Deep Ocean Water:
the lined ponds are filled with 95% fresh water drawn from wells in the
rainforest aquifer, supplemented by 5% with nutrient-rich ocean water
pumped from a depth of 2,000 feet - this pure water has not seen the
surface in over 2000 years. This vital resource provides a rich mixture
of calcium, magnesium and 94 trace minerals. Other farms use river water
or irrigation water.
Radiation free: Spirulina Pacifica
is tested quartely for radiation contamination through independent 3rd
party laboratories. The analyses have always found no detectable
radiation. Recent test results after the Fukushima accident have also
shown no contamination whatsoever - see official company statement.
herbicide-free and non-irradiated: Spirulina Pacifica is never
irradiated and is regularly tested by an independent laboratory to
ensure that no pesticides or herbicides are present.
The patented oxygen-free drying system, Ocean Chill Drying, allows
Spirulina Pacifica to be dried in an environment which preserves high
nutrient and enzyme concentrations by preventing oxidative damage.
Oxygen barrier packaging and cold-press tableting protect Spirulina
Pacifica's superior nutritional profile while insuring its fresh taste.
the only Spirulina grown in the United States that has attained "GRAS
Status" (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the US FDA for all food,
beverage and supplement applications. Strict quality control and intense
hygiene procedures during growing and processing make for the purest
Spirulina in the world; it is also known for extremely low levels of
lead and other heavy metals as well as very low bacterial levels.
Quality Tablets: The company's modern facility was expressly built to
make these tablets efficiently and with minimal exposure to oxygen.
Because Spirulina is a fine dusty powder, it is inherently difficult to
tablet. Some manufacturers solve this problem with high levels of tablet
binders or by using heat granulation which can degrade nutrients. And
just as with our powder, tablets are immediately heat/vacuum-sealed in
foil laminate bags with an enclosed oxygen absorber. Spirulina tablets
arrive absolutely fresh, with a storage life of more than 3 years.
How is Hawaiian Spirulina produced?
Pacifica is cultured in lined shallow open ponds (approximately 20 cm
deep) adjacent to the Pacific Ocean. A combination of fresh water and
supplemental deep ocean water is used to fill the ponds. Natural
food-grade ingredients are used and the deep sea water is added as a
rich source of minerals and trace elements. Paddle wheels agitate the
water, ensuring even exposure of the algae to the sun for optimal growth
and nutritional value.
What you should expect from our spirulina products:
pure unadulterated premium quality Arthrospira Platensis, one of the
very best in the world with its amazing nutritional benefits.
powder is a free-flowing green to bluish-green powder. It has a mild
seaweed odour and is not water soluble; it forms a suspension. The
particle size is <125 microns with a bulk density >0.48 g/ml.
tablets are not submitted through any ionization processes. They are
cold-pressed and manufactured in accordance with NPA-Good Manufacturing
Practices and with local and State of Hawaii regulations. Silica (1%),
chicory inulin (0.4%) and vegetable magnesium stearate (0.1%) are used
as tableting aids; these aids are certified "non-GMO" by the suppliers.
capsules are 100% vegetarian with no porcine, bovine or fish gelatine
and they contain a minimum 400mg powder fill (TrufilTM). They are
GMO-free and approved for use in organic products.
vacuum-packed in state-of-the-art food-graded 90 micron aluminium foil
bags with a press ziplock to reseal after opening. The benefits are:
- Removes oxygen so preventing oxidation and film forming on the tablet
- Keeps out water and dust reliably
- Protects against moisture and drying out
- Contents stay complete and unharmed
- The outer foil liner gives an optimum light barrier, the inner liner is food-grade plastic (PET/AL/PE)
- Individual 90g packs means that every time you open a pack, contents are fresh
The all-natural brown kraft paper stand-up pouches
for the powder are manufactured from 70gsm paper and 12 micron
metalised PET / 70 micron PE lining (food grade specification) with a
tear-band and resealable ziplock across the top. The thin metal lining
serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odours, flavours,
moisture and bacteria. Note that the individual layers of the pouches
can be recycled. They are also packed with a SuperDryPak safe indicating
silica gel 1g desiccant that keeps the contents fresh and free from
moisture and oxidisation.
Packages are clearly labelled with
taking instructions, detailed nutritional analysis, batch number, "best
before" dates and contact details.
All our products are certified kosher and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
