Newly re-discovered, Spirulina had always been a primary source of nutrition in ancient cultures such as Aztecs and Mayas. The WHO described Spirulina in 1974 as the best food of future!
Spirulina (Arthrospira), also known as a blue-algae, is a Cyanobakteria which inhabits shallow, tropical and subtropical alkaline waters with high salinity in the Mediterranean area, Southeast Asia, Africa and Australia. There are currently 35 known varieties of this bacteria. (Eg. Spirulina platensis, Spirulina fusiformis und Spirulina maxima)
The striking deep green color with a slight bluish tinge is created by the color pigments; chlorophyll and phycoyanin, which also enable the algae to perform photosynthesis and thereby, produce their own nutrients.
Spirulina not only impresses with a protein content of 60-70%, but also provides a variety of nutrients, minerals, trace elements and secondary plant substances. For example, Spirulina contains all 8 essential amino acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, as well as high concentrations of calcium, iron and magnesium. Beta-carotene as a precursor of vitamin A, B vitamins and vitamin E are also part of the repertoire of this nutrient-rich power alga.
