Why is Californian spirulina not organic?

We often get asked whether our Californian Spirulina is organic and if not, whether we can source some for our customers. Unfortunately there is no such thing as organic Californian Spirulina anymore. There is only one company (Earthwise) that manufactures spirulina in California and their spirulina hasn’t been certified organic since 2005 when the US National Organic Standards Board changed the requirements for organic spirulina certification. In 2005 the Board ruled out the use of Chilean nitrate in organic production. This nitrate is an organic material that is water soluble and has been widely used for microalgae production. However, as it is mined and not grown, it is regarded as non-sustainable and has fallen foul of the new regulations. Earthwise decided that it was not economically feasible to comply with the certification changes and gave up their organic certification.

Despite this, Californian Spirulina is still widely (and incorrectly) advertised as being organic even though it no longer is. However, it still remains an excellent source for spirulina. If you’re looking for an organic alternative, please check out the Chinese organic spirulina powder.
