Golden Chlorella

Detox with plant super protein from microalgae

Golden Chlorella is a superfood that consists of only one ingredient: fermented and dried chlorella algae. Unicellular and multicellular microalgae have existed for several billion years. They are among the very first living organisms in the world, from which other life forms have evolved. So basically you could say: microalgae are a basis of our existence. Golden Chlorella contains numerous important nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids and omega-3 fatty acids. In addition, this freshwater algae has a natural golden colour and is neutral in taste making it easy integrated into almost any dish

Nutritious and healthy

Compared to beef, which typically contains about 25% protein, fish (18-29%), egg (13%) and soy (30%), Golden Chlorella at +30% is not only the most protein-rich, but also the most comprehensive and nutrient-dense food source currently available to us for a balanced, healthy and vegetarian to vegan diet. One teaspoon, or about 10g, is equivalent to the protein content of half an egg, 100ml of milk or 12g of a steak.

In addition to protein, Golden Chlorella also contains an abundance of fibre, minerals, vitamins B1, B2 and B6, as well as amino and omega fatty acids. These support the immune system, promote brain development and health, help maintain bone density and vision, and are good for skin and hair. In addition, the micro-algae can make valuable contributions to compensate for iron , magnesium and vitamin B12 deficiency.

Chlorella has been shown to help lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, helps prevent cardiovascular problems, atherosclerosis and hyperlipidaemia, and contributes to weight regulation. In addition, it causes natural detoxification, as its regular intake can remove heavy metals and harmful substances from the body, enforcing the strengthening of the immune system and detoxification of the body.

Strengthening the immune system and detoxifying the body

The two main amino acids in Golden Chlorella are arginine and glutamic acid. Arginine improves immune function, increases muscle mass and energy levels, reduces cardiovascular problems, contributes to good sexual function, and helps break down fat cells. Overall, arginine promotes general well-being. Glutamic acid is an indispensable aid for the human brain. It enhances learning and memory function by supporting the transfer of information between neurons.

Also contained in Golden Chlorella are the two carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, which have a positive effect on the resistance of the eyes. Both carotenoids are also antioxidants that counteract the accumulation of fat cells in the arteries. Pollutants can enter the body through environmental pollution or other causes – for example, amalgam fillings in the teeth. There they are stored in the cells and can be responsible for various diseases. The fibrous cell wall of Chlorella (Sporopollenin) can absorb toxins and heavy metals, therefore helping the body eliminate them.

Regular intake of Chlorella (1 teaspoon per day) will enrich any dish with plant protein, making it more nutritious. Golden Chlorella is versatile and can be easily integrated into your daily diet without affecting eating nor cooking habits. This unique product is therefore more than a conventional food supplement – Golden Chlorella is an extremely healthy ingredient in everyday food preparation.

Taste: The superfood Golden Chlorella is tasteless

When people think of algae as a food today, they usually have the deep green colour and strong algae taste in mind. Thanks to an innovative fermentation method of this chlorella vulgaris algae, Alver has succeeded in producing a golden-coloured and neutral tasting Golden Chlorella. Alver relies on a sustainable and natural fermentation process in a closed controlled environment. The result Is our lovely Golden Chlorella which due to its neutral taste can be easily integrated into most meal preparations, from a protein-rich breakfast to a healthy and balanced lunch, to an enjoyable dinner.

Sustainable: Vegan and low-resource production

As the world’s population continues to grow, so does the demand for food. Rising meat and dairy consumption are one of the main causes of ever-increasing CO₂ emissions and excessive consumption of water, arable land, and pasture.

The production of a single kilogram of beef alone requires about 15,000 litres of water. Unfortunately, the agricultural land available per capita is decreasing day by day. Moreover, experts expect this area to triple in the coming years due to global population growth alone. Added to this is the loss of arable land due to ongoing urbanization.

Here, Golden Chlorella, as an alternative protein source, can make a significant contribution to the more sustainable development of food production. The micro-algae are grown through a natural fermentation process.

In short, algae are the most sustainable source of protein for the healthy diet of the future.
