We would like to inform everyone that Tavelmout Corporation (Headquarters: Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, CEO: Toshiya SASAKI), which sells fresh Spirulina, the King of superfoods, that have been quick-frozen, will be introduced starting from Japan’s first-ever store specialising in cold-pressed juices, SUNSHINE JUICE, followed by various other stores located nation-wide.
Cold-pressed juice is gaining attention for its ability to retain all the nutrients from its ingredients due to the fact that the fruits and vegetables are compressed at a low-speed instead of adding heat to them. ‘Tavelmout (Raw spirulina)’ is spirulina that have been quick-frozen while still fresh and alive, unlike existing commercial spirulina that have been dried and turned into powder. As it has not been dried, much of its nutrients have been retained and by matching it with the idea of cold-pressed juices, we will be bringing it into an estimated number of 40 shops nation-wide, including cold-pressed juice shops, smoothie shops and health-oriented cafes.
Tavelmout started online sales from May 2015, and physically at Aoyama Farmers’ Market from November of the same year. On the Saturdays of April 2016 (excluding 16 and 17), we will be collaborating with Aoyama Farmers’ Market’s Mellow Juice Bar, and will be selling 3 different kinds of Tavelmout juices.

‘Spirulina’, the oldest plant having appeared on earth since 3.5 billion years ago, which contains more than 60 different types of nutrients and has long since been a ‘valuable source of food’ in Africa, is becoming more widely known as the ‘King of superfoods’ in America and Japan.
Instead of drying it, Tavelmout’s spirulina, cultivated in Kakegawa city, Shizuoka prefecture, is quick-frozen while still fresh via special technology, giving birth to the product, ‘raw’ spirulina. Despite its shockingly intense green colour, there is nearly no taste nor smell to it.
In addition to being ‘raw’, Tavelmout is an ingredient that lays the foundations for raising nutritional standards and promoting a healthier body due to it retaining all of the spirulina’s nutrient content.
<’Tavelmout’ unique features>
1．Rich in colour and nutrients
In addition to having β-carotene and chlorophyll that are present in many green and yellow vegetables, it also contains the green pigment ‘phycocyanin’, resulting in the spirulina’s intense green colour. As Tavelmout has not been dried and is still in its ‘raw’ state, its colour pigment is 1.4 times more intense than that of other dried products. Its vitamin content is 1.4 times more and its mineral content is 1.2 times more than that of its dried counterparts. It also contains 2.5 times more of the essential fatty acid, α-linolenic acid.
2．Almost non-existent taste and smell
‘Raw’ spirulina, Tavelmout, has nearly no taste nor smell despite its intense colour. Hence, it can be combined with a variety of flavours and can taste good by adding it to juices or yogurt.
3．Manufactured locally (Japan)・Additives-free・Pesticide-free
The spirulina have been cultivated pesticide-free using mineral-rich groundwater in Kakegawa city, Shizuoka prefecture. Tavelmout is frozen fresh without any additives, thus enabling consumers to have a peace of mind during consumption.
