As a result, these microalgae are free from iodine, heavy metals, pesticides, antibiotics, microbes and other contaminants or other microorganisms.

Proprietary cultivation technique

The algae are cultivated indoors in a fully closed system, thus the growth is completely controlled from start to finish. Phycom selects the best algae strains and is able to make them axenic* before cultivation starts. After succeeding the cultivation step, mass volume production of whole algae strains starts. At the peak of its nutritional value the algae are harvested.  The water is separated from the algae, after which a yogurt- like paste forms. This paste is immediately and rapidly dried after harvesting. 

The dried algae are then ground, resulting in a fresh green leaf color. The worldwide unique - in-house developed - process result in superior and consistent quality and quantity. Due to this innovative production system a superb, the highest quality algae is secured 24/7. Delivery reliability of the highest quality algae, rich in protein, antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids and other substances is thus guaranteed.​
