Sourced from across the globe

Chlorella is an ancient species which first evolved around 2 billion years ago, but was only identified in the 1800s by a Dutch scientist. Much research was conducted in the early 1900s into chlorella’s potential as a readily available source of nutrition as it grows quickly, assimilating energy at a faster rate than other terrestrial plant crops. It is now grown and harvested commercially in countries across the world with a suitably warm climate and consistent sunlight, as it requires temperatures between 20-25°C and constant sunlight to grow sufficiently for cell division to occur.

Our chlorella is grown and harvested on a small island in the South China sea. The freshwater ponds are filled with water extracted from deep below the ground, which is carefully filtered before use to ensure it is completely pure. No chemical pesticides or herbicides are used in the growth of our organic chlorella, and it is allowed to grow outside under natural sunlight whilst being gently mixed to ensure an even distribution of the newly generated chlorella cells as it rapidly reproduces
