Roquette Chlorella is a freshwater microalgae rich in nutrients and antioxidants, such as carotenoids. It is produced in France in a closed production system guaranteeing high bacteriological quality and a reproducible composition.
Roquette Nutriose is a soluble fibre obtained from maize or wheat. It has a prebiotic effect, in particular by modulating colon microflora.
Roquette demonstrated the synergistic effect of combining the two ingredients in an in vivo study, which observed increased antioxidant activity in stools.
The prebiotic action of the soluble fibre is reported to stimulate enzyme activity in the colon, thereby promoting hydrolysis of the chlorella wall, releasing antioxidant ingredients.
A patent application has been filed for this specific combination.
