The Omega 3 comes from hemp protein and ground flaxseed not salmon, the chlorophyll from algae, etc. You can see just how processed VEGA really is by reading the ingredient list. Here is an example:
Chocolate flavor ingredients: Organic hemp protein (pesticide free), yellow pea protein (non-GMO), natural chocolate flavour, whole flax seed (micro-milled), organic brown rice protein (certified organic), fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), ChlorEssence (high CGF chlorella), MacaSure (certified organic gelatinized maca), potassium phosphate, xanthan gum, calcium phosphate, digestive enzyme blend, magnesium HVP chelate, stevia leaf, ORAC 800+ mixed berry complex (wild blueberry, blueberry, black raspberry, luo han gao fruit extract, cranberry juice extract, grapefruit juice extract, marion berry, boysenberry, blackberry, grape extract), sodium chloride, probiotic blend (L.acidophilus/B.bifidum), iron HVP chelate, zinc HVP chelate, vitamin C (ascorbic acid), molybdenum HVP chelate, manganese HVP chelate, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin E (d-alpha tocopheryl acetate), copper HVP chelate, potassium iodide, biotin, vitamin A (palmitate), selenium HVP chelate, calcium D-pantothenate, vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), chromium HVP chelate, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B1 (thiamine hydrochloride), folic acid, vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin).
Hardly a unprocessed raw food green smoothie. Not necessarily bad, but its made in a lab not in a kitchen.
