What makes Big Food Dutch Chlorella special?
The Chlorella for Big Food is grown in the Netherlands. For algae cultivation, a 6-step method is used, the so-called Heterotrophic process (You can read more about this).
The Chlorella Pyrenoidosa is grown in a closed tank (bioreactor), for which only pure Dutch water is used. In addition, because of the closed tank, no contamination from outside is possible and there is no influence from varying amounts of sunlight or other changing weather conditions.
As a result, the quality of our Dutch chlorella is constant and fully controllable. Heterotrophic culture is the most consistent and purest chlorella culture possible.
How can Dutch Chlorella help you?
Most people are constantly exposed to (air) pollution during daily life. This makes it difficult to stay away from toxins, chemicals, dust and harmful substances that increase the risk of diseases and accelerate aging.
This is where Chlorella can help us. Chlorella contains many vitamins, minerals and amino acids that have been studied in clinical studies for its cleansing and detoxifying properties. (Source: Liebertpub)
Chlorella as a source of proteins
Chlorella is a source of protein. It also contains amino acids that help build proteins. Chlorella contains high quality proteins and has been studied as a possible alternative protein source (Source: Bioresources).
Chlorella contains protein with all the essential amino acids that humans need for muscle growth, maintenance of muscle mass and healthy bones (Source: Article 13). As a result, chlorella is often added to vegetarian and vegan diets.
SUSTAINABLE, PURE PRODUCTION METHOD
Algae - including chlorella - are very sustainable as a product. For example, algae are an excellent replacement for animal products that have a huge impact on CO2 emissions. In addition, the heterotrophic culture method is a very sustainable way of growing algae for no agricultural land is used. The cultivation of our chlorella takes place in the Netherlands, which means that the transport lines are short and therefore less CO2 and particulate matter are emitted.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Choosing whether to pick Chlorella powder or tablet is entirely up to you. Chlorella powder gives the consumer the option to add Chlorella to drinks, smoothies, and juices. In contrast, Chlorella tablets offer convenience to consumers, where you can take them easily. Some combine both, where some use powders when they're at home and use tablets as a to-go chlorella supplement when they go out.
Chlorella is a green freshwater alga with a single cell that belongs to the Chlorellaceae family. Chlorella is one of the oldest lifeforms on earth and is one of the lifeforms that has learned to adapt to survive in harsh environments. This green freshwater alga dates to 2.5 billion years ago and is considered a "survival champion" (Pura Chlorella).
Chlorella pyrenoidosa is a single-celled freshwater alga that originates from the Chlorellaceae family. Like Spirulina, Chlorella has exploded in popularity as a nutritional supplement in recent years due to its rich and diverse nutritional profile.
Consisting of approximately 50% of protein, the algae superfood also offers sources of crucial vitamins and minerals, Chlorophyll and carotenoids (e.g., lutein). By grinding the superfood algae into a potent powder, the nutritional density of just a single teaspoon can provide you with your daily needs of many of these micronutrients.
Most of the time, consumers get confused between Chlorella and Spirulina when they are very different. Chlorella only grows in freshwaters, while Spirulina grows in saltwater. Both contain antioxidants, minerals, and nutrients, but Chlorella includes five times more Chlorophyll than Spirulina. (Source: Chlorella-Europe) You can also get both the nutrients of Chlorella and Spirulina in one supplement. You can know more and get to choose from Big Food Chlorella Spirulina

For our brand, the best way to use Chlorella is to build it up slowly. Start taking 2 grams (4 tablets) per day with a glass of water and slowly build it up in 2 weeks to 2 to 3 grams (8 to 12 tablets) per day.
We recommend not exceeding the recommended amount. The use of chlorella should not be rushed and built up too quickly.
If you want to build even further, we advise you to listen carefully to the body.

Chlorella has been shown to help treat constipation and enhance gut health in several trials conducted in Japan. This is feasible because of Chlorella's indigestible cell wall or "fiber," which can help facilitate food transit from the stomach to the intestine and increase the frequency of bowel movements.

According to studies. Chlorella has been found to possess probiotic and prebiotic effects. (Source: MDP). Chlorella contains live microorganisms that act as a probiotic wherein it helps balance the natural gut bacteria whenever there is a foreign or unwanted bacteria, or illness (Source: NHS), while its plant fibers also act as a prebiotic that serves as a fertilizer to gut bacteria, helping it grow and stimulate its activity.
For first-time users, some of the side effects of taking Chlorella may include diarrhea, nausea, gas (flatulence), and green coloration of stool during the first week.

Since Chlorella is rarely examined and mainly conducted on animal subjects, it has yet to be studied in human trials for its weight-loss effects.
Chlorella pyrenoidosa, on the other hand, is more commonly investigated as a supplement that may help to lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels, speed up wound healing, and improve immune function. (Source: Pubmed)
