cosmeticChlorella powder is an ingredient in natural skin care products because of its nutrient profile and antioxidant compounds. It is also used in combination with bentonite clay in facial masks.
culinaryAdd chlorella powder to chai and lattes or combine with spices in fruit smoothies, nondairy protein shakes, chia pudding and baked oatmeal. The powder may also be added to batter for (green) muffins and quick breads.
industrialChlorella powder is used in fertilizer and as a renewable fuel source in the agriculture industry.
safetyChlorella powder is safe for most people, although large doses and long-term use is not recommended. People with a known allergy to mold spores may experience sensitivity to chlorella. Photosensitivity may occur, which can be countered with wearing sunscreen when outdoors. Check with your doctor before using this product if you are pregnant or nursing, or if you take immunosuppressants to avoid excessive growth of “bad” bacteria in the gut.
