Hello...this is an ingredient in the green powder that Alissa sells. I am very interested in the powder, however, I believe that asperguilus is a mold. Is this correct or am I confusing it with something else?

Wow...I think I have the distinction of having the only post with no replies. I thought I'd write a little something so it doesn't look so lonely!

Smileen, more than likely no one knew the answer to your question I'm sure.
But after doing a quick Google search, I discovered there is a aspergillius that IS a type of mold but only found a few refererences to asperguilus (it even asked me if I meant to type "aspergillius"). So, not sure if they're the same or not, but you might want to try doing a search and see what you come up with.

I also tried to look it up and it refered me to Allisa's site. So we were really trying to find you an answer.

Sorry, i didnt see this post before.
Here is the reason its in my green powder. This is also on my web site under the full explanation of enzymes http://www.alissacohen.com/greens_enzymedetail.html#protease
that are in my products. I pasted this below so you can read it and bolded the section about aspergillis, although i would read before and after it to give you a better idea of what its talking about.
Protease, Peptase, and Serrapeptase also known as Serratia peptidase:
Helps to digests proteins The proteins are broken down to their basic building blocks - amino acids..
Protease can be helpful for people with food allergies..
Anxiety, low blood sugar, kidney problems, back problems, candida, bacterial and viral infections, constipation, gingivitis, hearing loss, parasites, insomnia, water retention, cancer, hypoglycemia, irritability as well as mood swings. Since it is involved in carrying protein-bound calcium in the blood stream a deficiency may also influence the susceptibility for arthritis, osteoporosis and calcium related diseases..
Protease has helped reducing bruising, swelling and infection in surgery or injuries. It is beneficial in fighting fatigue, anxiety, flu, PMS, fever, colds, fibromyalgia and acne. .
Protease from aspergillis (Aspergillus Niger / Aspergillus oryzae) when taken on an empty stomach, has a very different and powerful function. It is a phenomenal blood cleanser, able to break down protein invadors in the blood stream, so that your immune system is able to destroy them. .
Some common protein invaders are Parasites, fungal forms, and bacteria. Viruses are nucleic acids covered by a protein film. Protease helps keep the intestines protected from these invaders and helps to keep the intestinal system strong..
Dr.Howell, the original enzyme research pioneer, developed enzyme supplements from aspergillis oryzae (a fungus) after finding them more effective than animal-based pancreatic supplements, which subsequent research confirmed. Aspergillis enzymes are also unusually stabile and active under a wide range of pH conditions, which is a very positive point, since animal enzymes (i.e., pepsin, pancreatin, trypsin, chymotrypsin, pancrelipase, and pancreatic amylase etc.), normally require special pH conditions, often lacking in impaired health conditions.
Clinical studies show that serrapeptase is a strong anti-inflammatory (particularly for post traumatic swelling) and anti-edemic (prevents swelling and fluid retention) and that its anti-inflammatory effects are superior to other proteolytic enzymes.
Because one of serrapeptase's most profound benefits is reduction of pain, physicians throughout Europe and Asia are using it in treatment as an alternative to salicylates and ibuprofen.
Hans A. Nieper, M.D., The late German physician used serrapeptase to treat arterial blockage in his coronary patients. Nieper's research indicated that the protein-dissolving action of serrapeptase will gradually break down atherosclerotic plaques. It has been shown to be more effective and quicker than EDTA chelation treatments in removing arterial plaque.
Research has shown that serrapeptase has been used in the successful treatment of fibrocystic breast disease. Serrapeptase has also been shown in clinical studies to benefit chronic sinusitis sufferers, due to its inflammatory properties, as well as for Bronchitis (Serrapeptase loosens and expels mucous).
In clinical studies Serrapeptase has been shown to digests dead tissue, blood clots, cysts, protect against stroke, and causes varicose veins to shrink or diminish.

Thank you....I will go back and read the entire section.
