Euglena provides both plant and animal benefits.
It is a breakthrough, healthy food.
Euglena has been living on Earth for more than 500 million years. It is an algae species that is identical to wakame (seaweed) and hijiki (edible brown algae). Euglena has both plant and animal properties. It can generate photosynthesis with its chlorophyll and also move by itself. It garnered increasing attention as a breakthrough ingredient, so-called super-food, because it contains both animal- and plant-derived nutrients.
Euglena is a type of seaweed
Three features of Euglena
as a superfood
Euglena contains various nutrients
that are also found in vegetables, fish, meat, etc.
Being a superfood, it contains various nutrient types need to live. It includes vitamins and minerals that tone the body, unsaturated fatty acids (DHA and EPA), and amino acids that are essential building blocks of life.
There is no cell wall that interferes
Raw vegetables have a hard cell wall. Since humans do not have an enzyme that breaks down cell walls, raw vegetables cannot be digested efficiently. In contrast, Euglena does not have a cell wall that interferes with digestion.
