Untreated organic spirulina from India in raw food quality
Spirulina is an organic blue-green algae revered for its exceptional nutritional value. There is a high protein content of 55-67%, including all essential amino acids. Spirulina is also an excellent source of minerals (5-9%) such as calcium, iron, and magnesium, as well as B vitamins, beta-carotene, and chlorophyll. The bioavailability of all nutrients is very good. Contains vitamin B12.
Almost all spirulina supplements are extacted from spirulina platensis, harvested from a pure variety that has been cultivated in a water-tank in a laboratory. The quality of the spirulina is thus naturally affected by the quality of the water used. In general, fresh water is combined with nutrient-rich seawater, and further nutrients are added. Until the algae has reached the desired growth-rate, the water is kept constantly flowing through the sealed tanks.
The resulting biomass is cleaned and gently spray-dried, producing a green powder, which is then packaged in, or further processed into tablet-form.
