Raw Living's organic Spirulina is ecologically grown outdoors on a tropical island off mainland China, in a pristine environment with tropical sunshine, pure air and fresh mountain spring water. It is grown in a controlled environment and not wild in lakes as this sometimes poses a risk in terms of toxicity and contamination. The Spirulina is produced without pesticides. The Spirulina is rigorously tested by independent laboratories for purity. It is free of toxic residues and has no chemical additives.

Spirulina is the most popular form of blue-green algae farmed for human consumption, and has been eaten by people all over the world for many decades. It is one of the best vegetarian sources of protein (about 60%), and it contains all the essential amino acids. It shares many of the properties of the wild Klamath Lake algae (see here). 

Suggested serving size: One tsp a day to begin. Over time, you can work up to 1-2 tbsp a day.

How to use: Spirulina has a strong, slightly fishy taste, that is hard to disguise. We like it best in soups, salad dressings and other savoury dishes. Add to green smoothies and sweeten with some fresh apple juice, this works with the children. You can also try blending with fruit like banana and making fruit wraps.

  • My Nutritional Makeover

    Calling Miss Magic Kate offered me a nutritional make over and I jumped with excitement.  Recently I have been feeling very tired and lethargic and really needing that something extra. Looking after my lil man is hard work as well as running a business and trying to do two what seems like full courses, all on the run.  I think my inner battery has been a bit low and although I do lots of exercise, probably too much actually, and eat well, the strain on my adrenals was high due to my heavy workload.  Kate’s consult was synchronicity indeed. Kate has such a friendly style and a real be good to yourself attitude.  She said to me, “Listen to your body, take it out of the head and into th » Read more on the blog
