Portugal-based microalgae supplier Allma has launched Chlorella Crunches, a new concept that blends rice cereals with sun-grown Chlorella vulgaris powder to create a crispy snack and ingredient solution.
Chlorella Crunches are available in a range of sizes, shapes and flavours and with varying concentrations of Chlorella. They can be seasoned and eaten alone as a healthy snack, or included in a salty snack mix. Alternatively, they can be used as an inclusion in a wide range of products, including yogurts, breakfast cereals, snack bars, soups, salads and more.
Chlorella Crunches contain Allma’s sun-grown Chlorella powder blended with white rice powder sourced from Europe. They are free of GMOs, gluten and all other major allergens.
“Chlorella Crunches have a wonderful crispy texture that adds depth and excitement to all kinds of food products,” said business development manager Sofia Mendonça. “They are available in several sizes and shapes, and a range of flavours, which means they are extremely versatile in terms of the applications they can be used for. They work equally well in sweet and savoury products, and thanks to Chlorella’s nutrition profile, provide the opportunity to boost the health credentials of products in a wide range of categories.”
The sun-grown Chlorella supplied by Allma is a rich, natural and 100% vegetable source of protein, including all nine of the essential amino acids. It also contains significant levels of omega-3 and 6 oils, complex carbohydrates, phytonutrients including lutein, beta-carotene, chlorophyll and zeaxanthin, and a wide spectrum of vitamins and minerals.
