What is blue spirulina?
Blue spirulina is extracted from the very popular and commonly consumed green spirulina. Blue spirulina comes from blue-green algae. There’s a blue pigment in this particular type of spirulina called phycocyanin. The taste of blue spirulina is neutral, making it an excellent addition to almost any kind of food.
Blue spirulina is one of the most popular supplements in the world! This blue powder gives not only pretty shades to food, but it is also packed with proteins, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and bring many benefits to our health. 💙
Powerhouse of nutrients - contains vitamins B1, B2, and B3, iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium.
Excellent source of protein - gives all the essential amino acids that you need.
High in antioxidants & anti-inflammatory properties - spirulina contains phycocyanin, an antioxidant that can fight free radicals and inhibit the production of inflammatory signalling molecules. Spirulina is higher in antioxidants than blueberries!
Using blue spirulina regularly may help in:
- lower blood pressure
- regulate blood sugar levels
- weight loss
- lower cholesterol level
- fight with anemia
- reduces allergy symptoms
- remove heavy metals
Does Blue Spirulina Have Any Side Effects?
In general, both blue and green spirulina are safe supplements. The most important is to use only a high-quality spirulina product because anytime it’s grown in the wild, it can absorb toxins from the water. Our Rawnice Blue Spirulina powder is tested by a non-biased third party to ensure it lives up to our high standards.
On top of this, our product has an approved certificate of analysis from our manufacturing team. It works as a double guarantee to assure you that all our products are free of toxins, heavy metals, and additives.
Blue Spirulina in your kitchen
Blue spirulina will work perfectly in your smoothies, raw desserts and many more! Just remember one important thing - blue spirulina is a heat-sensitive powder.
It will work with pancakes if you cook them at very low heat. If you would use it to colour your cakes or other baking goods, be prepared for a little disappointment - the blue colour probably will fade under heat treatment.
