We are the harvesters of the finest certified organic wild-grown blue green Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) algae on the planet! The AFA harvested by Klamath Algae Products, Inc. grows in a very special place – Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon. Situated at 4,100 feet of elevation, the volcanic springs and mineral rich water are fed by the snow melt from the surrounding Cascade Mountains. Abundant fresh air and life-giving sunlight are present for over 300 days of the year. This ideal setting provides the perfect conditions for the organic life-giving food to thrive.
AFA is selectively gathered by our expert harvesters and collected from only the deepest, most pristine waters of Upper Klamath Lake. We harvest only at peak times of optimal growth when the AFA is the heartiest, healthiest and most vibrant. Harvesting AFA is an art and a science. We discovered that the strongest and freshest AFA possesses the highest life force.
The benefits of AFA are directly proportional to the quality of the harvesting source and how the AFA is handled at every step of the process. We take pride in knowing that we bring you the most potent and powerful AFA in the world. Klamath Algae Products’ superior harvesting and proprietary filtration methods ensure the absolute highest quality. Our AFA is selectively harvested so that only the purest, most vibrant blooms are gathered. As harvesters, we work hand-in-hand with the most experienced, conscientious and knowledgeable researchers in the world.
From the moment we harvest the AFA, to its final packaging, we work with only the most highly trained and qualified staff. We handle our AFA with such care from start to finish. Factors contributing to this quality include: where and how we harvest, keeping the AFA cold at all times, superior filtration and storage, and ongoing quality-control testing of all of our products. All products are tested thoroughly by independent USDA certified labs for food safety, shelf-life and various other purity tests.
The benefits of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae are directly related to the care and attention given to sourcing and harvesting the product. Our quality care begins with the selection of the freshest AFA "blooms" from pristine Eagle Ridge. The harvesting is quickly followed by rapid chilling of the AFA to 34 to 37 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, our AFA is further purified by careful centrifugation, leaving a product chilled and scrupulously clean. AFA is handled more expeditiously from harvest to freezer than any competitive product. Our quality control parameters coupled with our proprietary final processing, yields the lake's most potent source of AFA. Unless you know the source of your AFA, there is no guarantee of quality. Our AFA products are harvested by the most competent harvesting team and staff of engineers in our industry.
