Why is AquaSource's AFA Algae product better than the other AFA algae products offered on the market?
AquaSource supplies the most carefully dried AFA.
The microalgae is dried at a very low physiological temperature with a patented technology.
As quoted from the AquaSource catalogue:
Most suppliers freeze the algae and dry it at high temperature. This can severely impact nutritional density and value. Think of almost any other food. If you freeze it and then cook it, much nutritional value can be lost.
AquaSource’s BioActiveDehydration is a new and proprietary drying process that dehydrates fresh to a powder with virtually no degradation of nutritional elements, colour, aroma or flavour.
In conventional drying techniques, the primary cause of degradation is exposure to high temperature.
Using BioActive Dehydration temperature never exceeds 40.5C (105F) and exceeds the normal human body temperature of 37.C (98.6F) for less than two minutes.
The graph illustrates exact and estimated product temperature over 4
minutes for the most common algae drying processes. Results can vary
with operating procedures.
