We produce world's best quality - suitable for human consumption - certified Micro Algae.
Although vegetables are one of the main sources of vitamin K, our Marine Phytoplankton contain no vitamin K.
Micro Algae are plants, which are very rich in nutrients and produced in a sustainable way. Aside from important minerals, the Marine Phytoplankton Algae contains iodine, all essential amino acids, a wide range of vitamins and antioxidants. Compared to other micro Algae, the Marine Phytoplankton Algae contains a high level of the essential fatty acid EPA. This Omega-3 phospholipid isn’t found in any other vegetarian source. The bioavailability and the biological effectively of this EPA-oil is extraordinary.
No, this is unwanted and unnecessary for the Marine Phytoplankton Algae. The cells of the Algae are intact (no broken cell walls as in Chlorella). This is why there is no need for adding preservatives. The green color (Chlorophyll) stays intact.
Yes, the body can convert Omega-3 EPA into DHA, as it is only two steps down the chain of ecosanoids. This is a process the body can do easily.
No, that is not necessary for the Marine Phytoplankton Algae. The cell walls of the Marine Phytoplankton Algae are easily digestible for human beings. A cell wall that has been cracked enables exposure of the nutrients in the cell. This results in the loss of important nutrients (due to oxidation).
Yes, the Marine Phytoplankton Algae is produced and prepared for delivery in Almere, next to the Oostvaardersplassen.
The Marine Phytoplankton Algae needs to be preserved in a closed packing without exposure to light. Prolonged exposure to the air bears the risk of contamination with bacteria of fungi. Prolonged exposure to light, discolors the Marine Phytoplankton Algae. The Chlorofyl in the Marine Phytoplankton Algae is still active. Prolonged light-exposure burns the Chlorofyl. It’s recommended to preserve the Marine Phytoplankton Algae in the original packing and close it properly after opening. It’s advised to take hygienic measures while using the Marine Phytoplankton Algae
The Marine Phytoplankton Algae has the so-called Umami taste, also referred to as the fifth taste, besides salty, sweet, bitter and sour. Because of the high oil content of the Marine Phytoplankton Algae, it has a slight fragrance of marine. In its isolated form the Marine Phytoplankton Algae powder has a prominent taste. That’s because with consumption of half a gram of the Marine Phytoplankton Algae you eat 1 billion separate algae plants. The best way to use the Marine Phytoplankton Algae powder is in combination with other products. You can at it to a smoothie or other drink. In case you don’t want to use the powder in a mix, we advise you to use the PlanktonHolland capsules.

The cultivation takes place in a greenhouse in The Netherlands (Almere) under natural conditions. The greenhouse isn’t illuminated of heated. This makes it a sustainable product and makes sure the Marine Phytoplankton Algae can grow as natural as possible. Our Marine PhytoPlankton Algae is cultivated on water from a very pure, deep underground saltwater source. This water dates from the Pleistocene (130.000 years old) and contains lots of minerals. Of course no pesticides are used during the Marine Phytoplankton Algae cultivation. We only use pure water and nutrients.
No, only the production and packing of the Marine Phytoplankton Algae takes place at this location. There is no contamination with other raw materials and/or products.
No, for as far as known, the Marine Phytoplankton Algae doesn’t cause allergic reactions. No preservatives, artificial colorings, aromatic or auxiliary substances are added. Of course you should not exceed the prescribed dose and in case of uncertainty or any suspected reactions you should consult a doctor.
