Spirulina Powder Organic
Spirulina (spirulina arthrospira platensis), what is it? Spirulina or chlorella is a multicellular cyanobacterium. This is a small life form and it occurs naturally in rivers and lakes in South America, Africa and Asia.
Spirulina is an ancient microscopic blue-green algae and simple life form. Spirulina algae are 100% natural and grow in sunlit alkaline gardens, which can be found in the United States, Greece, India and Japan, among others. Spirulina produces energy from sunlight. In Latin, spirulina means 'little spiral' and this is the form that the algae has. Spirulina is a very successful life form, which has thrived on earth for 3.5 billion years.
Production Process Spirulina Powder Organic
Organic spirulina is culturing raw and when it is ready it can be used or processed into a powder. The spirulina is then collected, washed, sieved with gauze and then spray dried. After this process, the spirulina is ready to be processed into a finely ground spirulina powder.
