Cool Green

New COOL GREEN is prepared using Cool Cooking Methodology and is formulated for the needs of herbivorous and omnivorous fish, both marine and freshwater species. Our process results in a soft-bodied, naturally green, leaf-like flake. Formerly PhytoPlankton Plus.

COOL GREEN provides herbivorous fish with a wide array of plant proteins and natural color enhancing compounds derived from spirulina (Arthrospira platensis), kelp (Ascophyllum nodosum), chlorella spp., schizochitrium limacinum, Paracoccus carotinifaciens, and garlic. And, because Cool Cooking Methodology gently dries our mixtures at half the temperature of conventional flaking and pelleting processes, we are able to maintain the integrity of delicate organic compounds found in nature.

Cool cooking methodology surpasses pelleting, extrusion, and conventional flaking processes for preserving lipids and vitamins and maintaining the integrity of marine proteins, flavourants and attractants - giving our customers ever greater assurance that all the care, time and money that they spend on their show and reef tanks will be equaled by the pride we take in our product.

COOL GREEN also includes beneficial bacteria to facilitate the conversion of fish and food waste into microbial biomass and harmless carbon dioxide. Unlike beneficial bacteria touted in conventionally processed flakes and pellets, the bacteria in COOL GREEN remain viable through the Cool Cooking process.

Proximate Analysis: Protein 48.36%; Fat 7.95%; Ash 4.99%; Moisture 12.16%; Vitamin C, 2,000 ppm; astaxanthin 200 ppm (calc. value).
