Spirulina has been consumed as a food for centuries, with ancient cultures in South America and Africa using spirulina for its amazing therapeutic properties and dense nutrient content. Recently spirulina has been termed the richest, most nutritious super food known to man and a September 2005 issue of AARP Magazine listed spirulina as the number one food to add years to your life.

Spirulina is arguably nature’s most powerful green food. With over 60% protein content, Spirulina is the highest, most digestible source of “complete” protein. Spirulina is also the source of several important phytonutrients like Carotenoids; Essential Fatty Acids like Gamma Linolenic Acid; Vitamin B12 – not found in any other green food; trace minerals such as Iron, Magnesium, Calcium and Selenium; Sulpholipids and the antioxidant enzyme Superoxide dismutase (SOD) all of which are in a bio-available form.This ability of being easily digested and assimilated is due to spirulina’s lack of cell wall. Most remarkably spirulina is the highest source for phytopigments like Phycocyanin, Beta-carotene, Zeaxanthin and other plant pigments that define green foods like Chlorophyll, making spirulina the most cost effective of green foods.
Higher Nutrient

  • Spirulina has the highest phytopigment content in its class.
  • Carotenoid profile: 4 to 4.5g/kg, Beta-carotene: 1.6 to 2.6g/kg, Xanthophylls: 1.7 to 2.4g/kg.
  • Consistent high levels of Phycocyanin ranging between 15 – 19%, thus giving spirulina its unique blue color.
  • High levels of Chlorophyll: 13 to 17g/kg with low pheophorbides, makes our Spirulina the greenest.

Safety

  • Preferred Standard Plate Count of less than 50,000 cfu/g, without chemical treatment or irradiation. Consistently low in heavy metals like
  • Lead: < 0.50 PPM
  • Arsenic: < 1.00 PPM
  • Cadmium: < 0.20 PPM
  • Mercury: < 0.05 PPM
  • Free from Microcystin and other algal toxins.
  • Stringent quality control procedures for batch wise analysis.
  • Low moisture 2.5% to 4% for longer shelf life
  • Low ash content 6% to 9%.

Production Process

Over ten years of production expertise ensures a high level of quality and consistency. We have been exporting microalgal health supplements to 38 countries – main markets being countries like the US, EU, Japan and New Zealand for many years now. In every way our spray-dried Spirulina powder – production, processing, analysis, purity, appearance, smell, taste and stability – is the best in the market today.

Our production facilities that involve operations like harvesting, drying, laboratory, warehousing and others are housed in concrete buildings designed to the best specifications, to maintain the highest standards of production efficiency, control and wholesomeness.

100% Organic Spirulina are grown in ponds gently agitated by paddle wheels, followed by harvesting with screens and drying in a spray drier.

The research lab possesses world-class sophisticated equipment to carry out the biochemical analysis and other standard operating procedures to meet International standards. Apart from research on Spirulina,Dunaliella and Haematococcus pluvialis, the team’s other activities include research on new microalgae rich in Omega -3 fatty acids and in continuously improving productivity / process and quality parameters.

Spirulina is not treated with chemicals such as Ethylene Oxide or subjected to irradiation to reduce the microbial count. Our Organic Spirulina is also free from pathogens, pesticides, herbicides and all other chemical contaminants. Fresh dried Spirulina, if stored properly under recommended storage procedures, retains nearly full Beta-carotene potency, for more than three years.

Our Organic Spirulina is available as powder and tablets. We supply two different grades of Spirulina, one for use in green drinks and the other one for tablet compression. Our organic Spirulina tablets contain 100% organic Spirulina. No binders or excipients are used in tablet manufacturing process.

Packing

Organic Spirulina in powder, tablets are packed in 1Kg, 5Kg or 25Kg food grade aluminum Bags, which are nitrogen flushed, heat Sealed and then packed in a corrugated carton box (max weight 25 Kg). These cartons are further shrink-wrapped to prevent contamination.

Organic Spirulina is not treated with chemicals such as Ethylene Oxide or subjected to irradiation to reduce the microbial count. It is also free from pathogens, pesticides, herbicides and all other chemical contaminants.

Note : Customary for natural products like Spirulina, Our Organic Spirulina nutrient value have been given as a range of minimum and maximum, whereas the nutrients in Hawaiian Spirulina has been reported by a specific value

Other Nutrients: Further to this, Organic Spirulina also has a rich amino acid profile, vitamins and SOD. We will be glad to share third party reports and our lab reports on the nutrition profile of Organic Spirulina.

Location: Organic Spirulina is cultivated in a pristine and remote hamlet in South India using pure ground water. The facility is away from human settlements, agricultural practices and major water bodies. This ensures that there is no possibility of contamination due to pollution, pesticides, shell fish etc.

Safety limits: Our stringent manufacturing practices and usage of Pure Vegetarian Organic nutrients ensures that the heavy metals are the least compared to other Spirulina manufacturers.
