Superfood 101: Spirulina Powder
What is Spirulina Powder?
Spirulina is a natural 'algae' (cyanbacteria) that has been used by a variety of civilizations for centuries. These ancient civilizations would harvest spirulina from nearby freshwater lakes, streams, rivers, and ponds and then dry out the algae before consuming. Spirulina was a daily staple for these natives and it became their primary source of protein as well as a good source for antioxidants, B-vitamins and other nutrients.
Our high purity powder comes directly from the entire algae plant which is hand harvested, dried at low temperatures, and then carefully milled into fine powder. This process retains the high nutritional value of the spirulina and allows for maximum digestion and absorption when consumed.
What does Spirulina Powder taste like?
Spirulina has a strong seaweed like taste and most consumers add it to recipes or put it in swallowable capsules.
