Chlorella is a unicellular green algae, and is thought to be one of the planet’s earliest living organisms. In the Far East chlorella is known as a traditional food and has been used as an alternative medicine since ancient times. This high-protein microalgae, which grows in fresh water, has a complete chain of essential amino acids and is a good source of vitamins and minerals. Naturya Organic Chlorella Powder has a broken cell wall, to allow maximum absorption of chlorella’s nutrients.
Chlorella is generally enjoyed in drink form, perhaps most commonly stirred into a glass of fruit juice. It can also be taken with water or mixed into a smoothie. Chlorella is a flexible ingredient and a great addition to salad dressings or pasta sauces. A popular option is to include chlorella in a home-made soup (or, if you’re feeling lazy, simply stir it into a ready-made soup!). The options for chlorella as an ingredient really are boundless; include it in dips, mashed potatoes, casseroles or anything else that takes your fancy. If in doubt, just throw some chlorella into your next stir fry! As ever, feel free to experiment. If you come up with a great recipe then why not send it to us along with some pictures?
