Alver : the vegan Swiss marvel

Alver is a new Swiss food company producing everyday foods that are based on Golden ChlorellaTM. This nutrient-dense micro-algae is a truly sustainable source of protein, something which the planet needs if we are to be able to feed the ever-increasing world population.

Their mission is to alleviate the protein crisis by creating sustainable, natural and tasty protein rich foods.

Mine Uran, a world-renowned authority on proteins, started Alver in September 2016 having identified an opportunity in the market for products that are genuinely healthy – rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and lipids.

Alver is the world’s first company to produce everyday foods with the nutrient dense Golden ChlorellaTM.

The business started trading in October 2016 in a successful trial period to assess market potential. Products were sold through independent shops in and around Geneva. Feedback has been very positive with a loyal client base.

The Swissness Norge team is very happy and excited to present this healthy protein with an excellent sustainability.

Alver has a truly Swissness Innovation Spirit, for us it was an honor and a natural choice to include them is our shop.

Golden Chlorella

Golden Chlorella powder is 100% natural and contains 30% protein (meat has 25%) and is rich in with potassium, magnesium, zinc and vitamin B. Chlorella is mostly known for its immune system boosting and detoxing the body especially from heavy metals.

Other benefits include brain maintenance, eye and skin health. The two main amino acids found in Golden Chlorella are:  arginine and glutamic acid. Arginine improves immune function, increases muscle mass and energy levels, reduces cardiovascular problems, contributes to good sexual function and helps reduce fat cells.

Overall, arginine supports general well being and happiness. Glutamic acid is an indispensable aid for our brains, it increases learning and memory function by supporting the transfer of information between nerve cells.

There are also two carotenoids: lutein and zeaxanthin. Both have a positive effect on the resilience of the eyes and are antioxidants that counteract the accumulation of fat cells in the arteries.

Unsaturated lipids in the Alver protein powder detoxify the body, increase blood circulation, and stimulate metabolism.

What to expect when you start with Golden Chlorella ?

The Colour:

Rich and bright yellow, like the sunshine. This bright yellow is a 100% natural and funny enough coming actually from the absence of light during the production process.

The Taste:

Neutral, blends in all dishes, this is their big secret and unique feature. If you would try it pure the powder has a slight sweet, nutty and earthy taste.

The Consistency:

A very fine and light impalpable powder, almost like cocoa powder.
