In order to always be able to provide the highest quality chlorella, we are committed to quality, from the culture environment to the manufacturing methods.
Chlorella is grown in the most suitable environment that makes use of nature’s bounty, a controlled clean outdoor culture.
In order to provide high quality chlorella, we at Sun Chlorella continue to focus on two points. The first is that out of all the types of chlorella, we focus on one strain. Of all the nutrients contained in chlorella, the most important is a nutrient called C. G. F. (Chlorella Growth Factor) We use our own Pyrenoidosa species (Sun Chlorella strain), which is rich in this nutrient.
The other point is growing chlorella in the optimal environment, an outdoor culture.
We believe that an outdoor culture is optimal for chlorella. The useful ingredients contained in Chlorella, including C. G. F. (Chlorella Growth Factor) , also known as chlorella extract, can be obtained in greater amounts in an outdoor controlled culture where it can fully enjoy solar energy, rather than in a sunless tank culture. This is why chlorella is called “canned sunshine.”
In order to make this possible, many conditions such as low rainfall and high solar radiation, steady temperature (average temperature of 20° C or higher), good quality water, clean air, etc. must be met. The so-called subtropical regions, such as Taiwan, have optimal conditions for chlorella cultivation. We make products using chlorella cultivated under such optimal conditions as our raw material.
We use proprietary cell wall crushing technology, a highly technical method to achieve highly digestible chlorella.
Chlorella has survived difficult environmental changes by being protected by tough cellular walls. However, it was this strong cell wall that prevented effective absorption of chlorella’s nutrients when consumed.
At Sun Chlorella, we succeeded in pulverizing this cell wall by about 90% or more using Japan’s first innovative cell wall crushing technology. This crushing rate has no equal when compared with microscopic photos of chlorella from other companies that are said to have broken walls. The walls are permeated in a physical way without using chemicals, enzymes, heat, etc., so the useful nutrients of Chlorella will not be damaged.
We offer chlorella with a high level of safety, produced in a GMP certified factory.
In order to deliver chlorella products that are high in quality from safety to ingredients, we produce everything from raw materials to the final stage of the product under our management system. Our absolute mission as a health food company is to keep strict production control and quality checks in all processes, and to continue making safe and high-quality products.
Sun Chlorella A is manufactured in a GMP certified factory, certified by the Japan Health and Nutrition Food Association based on the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare’s February 2005 guidelines, “Regarding basic principles for the proper manufacture of food products such as tablets and capsules,” and is approved to display this on the products.
To provide safer products, and gain the public’s trust
At Sun Chlorella, as a company that works with food, we conduct our business with safety as our top priority in relation to our quality and manufacturing process. In addition to acquiring GMP certification, we have also proactively acquired the Japan Health and Nutrition Food Association marks that regulate product standards such as ingredients contained in the food, as well as the safety self-assessment certification system (third party certification) established based on the recommendation “Report of the study meeting on securing health food product safety” on July 4, 2008.
At Sun Chlorella, we will strive to further improve our product quality by providing products with even better safety and contributing to a healthy, long-living society.
