Chlorella benefits to our health are widely known. Chlorella and spirulina are the two most scientifically scrutinized foods on Earth. More studies have been published about chlorella and spirulina than any other food. A Certificate of Analysis comes with every batch of chlorella and spirulina we receive from the manufacturer. They are carefully checked for heavy metals such as lead, bacteria, and other possible contaminants. No other foods are scrutinized this carefully. The reason is because they are the most nutritionally dense foods known, and they have the broadest array of nutrients of any foods. Nothing beats them for Protein, Chlorophyll and nucleic Acids (RNA/DNA).
Here is a detailed nutritional analysis of Chlorella Powder for 2010: http://watershed.net/media/pdf/Chlorella_powder_Japan_Nat._Lab_2010.pdf
Such an analysis costs more than US$10,000 to complete and is done once each year.
