Marine phyto-plankton is a single-celled aquatic organism, or microscopic algae that the survival of 99% of all life forms on earth depends on.
We use the superior compressed cake form of marine plankton. Marine plankton is one of the very few vegan sources of Omega 3. Use 0.5g as a daily omega three supplement.
Why take and benefits
We use the finest cultivated marine phyto-plankton. We use the nannochloropsis species. Nannochloropsis is a small single cell green microalgae species that is rich in essential polyunsaturated acids, pigments and vitamins. A special cultivation process utilizing photo-bioreactors optimizes the growth conditions and ensures the high quality and pureness of the algae. Fresh cells are harvested year round and deep-frozen at temperatures below -50 Celsius directly after harvesting. The freeze-drying safeguards the preservation of all essential constituents of the algae cells.
Natural marine plankton is responsible for 90% per cent of all oxygen production, (more than all forests) on the planet (according to NASA). Revolution foods strive to provide the finest quality products at competitive prices.
Marine phytoplankton is abundant in the nutrients:
- ALA omega 3 fatty acid
- EPA omega 3 fatty acid
- Carotene (Antioxidant)
- Diadinoxanthin (Antioxidant)
- Violaxanthin (Antioxidant)
- Zeaxanthin (lutein) (Antioxidant)
- 15 amino acids
Preservation and microbiology
No preservatives have been added. Absence of unwanted additional algae and maintaining high sanitary levels both during cultivation and processing obtain low levels of microbes. All cultivation medium used is purified by ultra-filtration. Harvested cells are frozen immediately after harvesting and freeze drying is performed under HACCP conditions. Freeze drying is used to maintain the natural chemical composition of the product.
