Spirulina is derived from cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae. Algae may not sound like the most appetising food but this variety is actually packed with nutrients that even NASA used as a dietary supplement in space!
Green Spirulina Vs Blue Spirulina
Green Spirulina is the algae in its most basic form. Farmers harvest the algae from ponds or controlled environments, dry the algae, and grind it into blue-green powder.
To make blue spirulina powder, phycocyanin is extracted from the algae. Since this type of spirulina powder is nothing more than phycocyanin in its purest form, it has a bright blue pigment without any traces of green.
Our spirulina is grown in a controlled environment and tested for contaminants and heavy metals. And no, our Blue Spirulina doesn’t have that fishy taste you experience in Green Spirulina!
