Purely: Learn - Spirulina
Spirulina is one of Earth’s oldest life forms, an algae. It provides a huge range of nutritional benefits and has been enjoyed for centuries by several Asian cultures. Centuries ago the Aztec civilisation cultivated it as a staple food, and today this ‘miracle from the sea’ is regarded as a superfood.
Its main ingredient protein typically forms around 60-70% of the product. It contains all eight of the essential amino acids – those that our body cannot manufacture for itself and that we must obtain from our food – This is reinforced by the presence of important vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B12 (often lacking in a vegetarian diet) - making it a useful protein source for vegetarians. Spirulina is also rich in Iron, Calcium and antioxidant compounds.
Spirulina is grown organically on an island in the South China Sea. Production starts with batches cultivated and grown by photosynthesis in cultivation ponds containing filtered, natural water. Once it has reached the required density the Spirulina is harvested, then dried using a process of spray evaporation to create a powder while losing virtually none of the nutritional value.
