Blue VS ‘Regular’ Green Spirulina?
Whilst ‘regular’, dark green spirulina is no slouch, honestly there’s no comparison vs blue spirulina. Green spirulina is the Arthrospira platensis algae in its most basic form, whereas blue spirulina is an extracted single phytopigment-protein called Phycocyanin which is why it’s such an incredible shade of blue and is so nutrient dense and high in antioxidants.
To compare for yourself – Chinese organic spirulina powder.
This blue spirulina is a vibrant E18 grade blue and is totally water soluble so it works brilliantly in smoothies and all sorts of other foods. It has to be one of the most photogenic and (we dare say) Instagrammable products out there!
Why is Blue spirulina powder not organic?
As this is an extract and takes some processing, it cannot be certified as organic even through it is derived from organic spirulina powder. It is extracted using water and salts.
This product has been tested for heavy metals, e.coli, yeast, mould, salmonella and foreign matter. This product contains no bulking agents, added sugar, palm oil or GMO.
Whilst we’re not permitted to advise, the suggested dose is 2-6g per day but as with all products in our range we would suggest starting with a small dose and listening to your body before increasing. When in doubt we recommend consulting a naturopathic nutritionist. Add to juices, smoothies, in water or can be added to many recipes to give an incredible blue colour.
