Blue spirulina is a natural blue pigment-protein extracted from the blue-green algae spirulina. The vibrant blue colour in blue spirulina is due to the pigment phycocyanin, an antioxidant.
Blue spirulina is a superfood that contains high nutritional content including antioxidants, vitamin Bs, plant-based essential amino acids.and minerals.
Unlike most green spirulina powder, our selected organic blue spirulina power has no algae smell and it is oh-so-tasty!
Approved and tested by our taste advisors, here are what they have to say:
“I was a bit scared to taste this but hey its nice! Sweet like horlicks mix with spirulina without the milky taste.”
“For someone who has never taken spirulina powder before. the taste is surprisingly good, it's sweet and tasted a bit like egg yolk.”
“A bit salty, but nice. Smooth and tasty. Less leafy/algae taste as compared to the green ones.”
“Lovely blue colour, could use for cakes and colour them naturally!
Interesting flavour, unexpected but not overwhelming.”
