Spirulina is a superfood with tremendous health benefits! Considered a complete protein.

What is Spirulina and Where Does It Come From?

Our spirulina is a blue-green algae that is grown in open-channel, shallow, man-made raceway ponds. Paddle wheels move the water to accelerate growth while growers continually add clean, fresh water and nutrients to the ponds to keep the spirulina thriving. When ready, the spirulina is harvested with filters, washed in fresh water, and then dried by spray drying machines. Our spirulina is non-irradiated and non-GMO.

What Does Spirulina Taste Like?

Spirulina has a smoky, seaweed-like taste which blends right in with beverages and foods.

How to Take Spirulina

For those new to spirulina, a single serving of is 1-2 teaspoons of the powder. As you become accustomed to having spirulina in your diet, you can gradually increase the dosage to 1-2 tablespoons per day.

Spirulina Recipe Ideas

To enjoy this superfood, mix spirulina powder in liquids, smoothies, salad dressings, guacamole, or sprinkle it on food. It’ll give your meal superpowers! Blend the superpowder with fruits and yogurt for a spirulina smoothie, or combine it with avocados for a guacamole dip.

Our Registered Dietitian’s Top Pick

Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes to add spirulina powder to guacamole to increase the protein content of the heart-healthy dip. Spirulina is about 55-77 percent protein by weight compared with 27 percent of meat and 34 percent of soy. This means that a little goes a long way to give you a major protein boost. Just one ounce of spirulina boasts 16 grams of protein.

Spirulina Through the Ages

Named the “Best Food for the Future” at the 1974 United Nations World Food Conference, spirulina soon caught on as a possible solution to severe malnutrition in third-world nations. The Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition (IIMSAM) was later founded to promote spirulina benefits such as its ability to provide the malnourished with nutrients, its low amount of side effects and eco-friendly cultivation practices.

A true future food, it may even soon be cultivated in zero gravity by NASA and the European Space Agency. In fact, NASA includes spirulina in its astronauts’ diet and plans to grow the algae on its space station.
