Aquae Care was the first to produce and market the microalgae AFA back in the early 1980’s. Since the start of our company to the present, innovation and continual improvement is part of our DNA.
At Aquae Care, microalgae is handled with extreme care, ensuring that its extraordinary nutritional properties are preserved and protected throughout processing. Our proprietary system takes into account that freshwater algae are more sensitive to heat than their cousins, the edible seaweeds (macroalgae). Valuable nutrients are easily lost if microalgae are not handled carefully during every stage of harvesting and processing. The unique, efficient, and eco-friendly, harvester designed and built by Aquae Care utilizes methods and patent-pending technology that contribute to the exclusive quality of our AFA.
Aquae Care uses a number of proprietary processes that yields third party certificates such as organic, halal, kosher and paleo friendly. We also employ Bioactive Dehydration®, a low-temperature drying process that preserves natural vitamins, enzymes, and other phytonutrients. Testing indicates that the quality of this drying system is superior to freeze-drying, especially for heat-sensitive nutrients such as chlorophyll and enzymes. In addition, because the algae is dried at temperatures below 105° F, it qualifies as a “raw food,” an important distinction to many health-conscious consumers.
Aquae Care maintains the highest manufacturing standards to ensure the integrity of the products we produce. Our company is registered by NSF International to United States Food & Drug Administration’s (USFDA) Good Manufacturing Practices for Dietary Supplements. Our facilities also carry a GMP For Sport® registration so you can be confident that substances banned by sports organizations will not be present in any products. We can supply your company high quality finished products with your proprietary label, bulk capsules, bulk tablets, and bulk powders. And our product development team can provide unique custom formulations for your application.
