Raw Living Spirulina is 100% truly a live whole food.
There is a huge difference between a cooked “raw” spirulina powder and fresh living spirulina. Living Spirulina contains all the essential nutrients required for humans to thrive in their bio-active form. Living Spirulina contains all the essential nutrients required for humans to thrive in their “bioactive” form. This is the key – “bioactive”. In order to create a spirulina powder companies use high heat spray drying machines that destroy the product removing all the life force and killing vital nutrition. Removing the water removes life. Tests have shown a 2-3% bio-availability of powdered spirulina vs. over 95% bio-availability Living Spirulina.
Spirulina powders and supplements containing spirulina are reported to have a strong burnt taste and smell compared with our fresh Living Spirulina which has virtually no smell or taste. Dried spirulina products are created using extremely high heat which degrades the vitamins, minerals, and protein making fresh living extremely more nutritious.
Spirulina powders are not fresh by any stretch of the imagination. We have traced some batch numbers back 10 years ago when they were produced. Fresh Living Spirulina also provides greater creativity in how you can incorporate it into your meal.
All powdered spirulina is dead and not whole. The term “raw” spirulina powder is an oxymoron. “Raw” means uncooked and unprocessed. The process of creating a powder of any kind means some level of heat (generally high heat) and processing is applied to extract the water.
Raw Living Spirulina is not processed, heated, cooked, dehydrated, spray dried, sun-dried, pelletized, flash-frozen, pasteurized, irradiated, or centrifuged. It is complete whole living food kept the way nature intended.
Oh my absolute goodness, I fluffy-duckling knew it…
Been taking powder for at least 3 years now here and there at length. Taking me up to just now, to date, to put together the fact that whatever process for converting the spirulina into powder they use MUST be zapping the nutrition… Sigh….
I hate being dumb like that, I KNEW I was just drinking stinky green powder. Hardly a beneficial nutrient contribution in dehydrated form. Typical human folly, conveniently muck up the value for the sake of ease.
I am going to find a way to cultivate & harvest my own. That is the only reasonable answer for my interests to participate in consuming substance.
