Folate which is highly contained in chlorella is essentially important nutrition for pregnant women and infants. The Japanese Ministry of health and welfare recommends taking folate through supplements for pregnant women because pregnant women need folate more than double before and during pregnancy. Sun Chlorella A contains not only folate but also iron and vitamin D which are necessary for pregnant women. We highly recommend Sun Chlorella A to pregnant women and your coming baby.

Is there any problem that children take Sun Chlorella products?

Sun Chlorella products are not medicine, so everyone can take safely. Recently, we can eat as much food as we want in Japan, therefore, not only adults but also children have an unbalanced diet. Unbalanced diet from childhood may cause some health problems. That’s why we positively recommend taking Sun Chlorella A for children as support of diet.

Is there any scientific evidence on chlorella and agaricus?

It is considered that health food such as chlorella and agaricus has health benefits due to interaction by multiple components. It is the difference from other supplements which consist of a single component. We don’t pursue the specific component. We have conducted many studies such as the latest DNA analysis. For more information, please see “Sun Chlorella Lab”.

Are heavy metals contained in Chlorella?

We request Japan Food Research Laboratories, the testing services provider, to inspect our product for each manufacturing lot and check the safety. Implementation of safety analysis with such a strict control is not so common for general food category; however, we are proud to say that inspection is very important to provide safe products.

Heavy metals

A lot of heavy metals such as lead, arsenic and cadmium are elements which are widely distributed in natural environment. They are emitted to nature environment by natural phenomenon such as weathering and erosion of rock cycle; therefore, certain amounts of heavy metals are inevitably contained in soil and water. In addition, some are emitted to nature environment by industrial activities. Most of animals and plants have taken heavy metals contaminated with soil and water in the process of growth. As for noxious chemicals contained in food unintentionally, it is agreed internationally that we should reduce the quantity of noxious chemicals by taking a proactively preventative measure implemented through supply chain from production to consumer end to reduce any possible contamination risks for noxious chemicals with reasonable efforts. Therefore, we use clean underground water flowed from 3,000m-class mountains insulated from the influence of industrial activities for cultivation of chlorella, and we make effort to reduce the contamination risk of heavy metals contained in chlorella in the process of producing. The contamination risk of heavy metals in chlorella varies according to weather conditions and duration of exposure to sunlight even if they are the same strain. If you would like to know the quantity of heavy metals contained in chlorella, please contact our customer service (Toll-free:0120-737-119). We will provide the related information on analysis values.

Is there any risk for pesticide residue to be contained in Chlorella?

We request inspection company registered by Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare to inspect our products at least for once a year and secure the safety of our product.

Pesticide residue
Regarding the pesticide residue, it has been confirmed that all our products lot which had gone through the inspection showed under the action threshold level, thus no risk of contamination. ※Detection limit value It is a value that refers to the marginal amount which is below the level of detection limit of inspection equipment and varies according to characteristic of object materials for detection, which is generally defined 1/10 -1/20 of threshold value with indication. “Under detection limit value”, “not detectable” and “N/D” mean that materials are not contained or below the limit of detector as marginal value.

Is there any risk of exposure to radioactive contaminant in Chlorella?

We request Japan Food Research Laboratories, the testing services provider, to inspect our product at least for once a year to ensure the safety of our product.

We inspect 3 kinds of materials such as radioactive substance, cesium-134/137 and iodine-131 at least for once a year. Then, we confirm that all product lot is under detection limit value and safe. After the Great East Japan earthquake, foreign countries concern about the safety of importing products produced in Japan, and some countries request for submitting a certification. We will continue to inspect periodically and confirm the safety for coping with these requests and providing safe products to our customers.
