Description

Organic Spirulina Powder is a nutrient dense algae high in protein.

Organic Spirulina Powder is a blue-green algae which has a vibrant green colour. Spirulina is amazingly high in protein (about 60-70%) and is also high in iron which makes it a nice addition to a vegetarian/vegan diet.

Spirulina really is a true power food with an impressive range of nutrients.  A 12g serving is high in vitamin B2, Vitamin B12, Copper and a source of Vitamin B1, Protein and Fibre.

If you want dense nutrition but don’t want to take supplements then spirulina is a great addition to a whole food diet. This product is raw, pure and has minimal processing.  It is non-GMO, raw, vegan, vegetarian and completely natural.

Our organic spirulina is grown close to Inner Mongolia in the Yanchi County.  The farm is surrounded by pristine natural forests and is completely isolated from urban areas and sources of agricultural pollution.  It is routinely tested for the presence of lead, mercury and other contaminants to ensure the finished product is completely pure and poses no risk of heavy metal poisoning.

Daily Serving: It is recommended to take Spirulina gradually (1tsp=4g). Start with a serving of ½ teaspoon (2g) a day building up to as much as 3 teaspoons daily (12g) maximum. Spirulina is nutritionally rich therefore a gradual intake can allow the body to adjust to it.

Origin: China

Allergen Information: Packed on premises that handle gluten, tree nuts, sesame, soya, peanuts.

    I tried this just to see what it was like, but now I’m hooked! It’s a great way to get protein into your green smoothies. Try mixing it with a little water before adding it to the blender to avoid the powder sticking to the sides. Great addition to sauces too!

Family Tips

  1. If you are a hardcore algae fanatic then you can mix spirulina straight into water and drink it!
  2. If you don’t think you can face that then don’t worry.  You can mix it into smoothies or juices.
  3. Spirulina can be added to energy ball recipes for extra protein and micro-nutrients.
  4. It is recommended to take Spirulina gradually (1tsp=4g). Start with a serving of ½ teaspoon (2g) a day building up to as much as 3 teaspoons daily (12g) maximum. Spirulina is nutritionally rich therefore a gradual intake can allow the body to adjust to it.
