Have you heard of spirulina crunchies?
Spirulina is a type of cyanobacteria — often referred to as blue-green algae — that is incredibly healthy. Spirulina may improve your levels of blood lipids, suppress oxidation, reduce blood pressure and lower blood sugar, and the nutritional value of 1g of spirulina is the equivalent to 1kg of assorted fruits and vegetables. Packed with protein, vitamins, and essential minerals, spirulina supports immune function, boosts energy levels, and promotes overall vitality. Additionally, its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties contribute to cellular health, making spirulina a valuable addition to a balanced diet for enhanced well-being and nutritional support.
It is also environment-friendly: to produce 1kg of spirulina, very little water is needed. Spirulina can help in the struggle with global warming as it fixes carbon and produces oxygen.
At Bali Spirulina Farm, they cultivate the Spirulina paracas strain, originated from Lake Huacachina in Peru. They dry it at low temperature, below 40C, in a closed room, to preserve all the nutrients and purity of their Spirulina, we can consider it raw!
