Sustainably-Grown Spirulina Crunchies
Spirulina is a microscopic freshwater vegetable that gets its name from its tiny spiral shape. Rich in chlorophyll, trace minerals and vitamins, spirulina is also a renowned source of protein including all eight essential amino acids. In historical times, the Aztecs skimmed spirulina from the surface of lakes and ponds, sun-drying their harvest into small, nourishing superfood cakes.
The Sunfood Difference
Their spirulina is ground into a paste, pressed into spaghetti strands & gently air-dried at low temperatures. This revolutionary process creates the extraordinary crunch & flavor of Spirulina Crunchies. Their spirulina is grown and processed without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, and is free of heavy metals and bacteria.
What is Spirulina?
Spirulina, Arthrospira platensis, is a fresh water micro-vegetable that gets its name from its microscopic spiral shape. Spirulina has been eaten by many cultures throughout history and if you could go back in time to visit the Aztecs you would find them using ropes to skim spirulina from the surface of lakes and ponds. They would then set the algae out to dry and make small, nourishing superfood cakes.
How Spirulina Crunchies are Made
Their Spirulina Crunchies are grown in a pristine region of beautiful Costa Rica. The algae is raised in covered pools of pure, nutrient rich water where paddles keep the water moving in a circular motion to avoid stagnation. Each step of the process is carefully monitored to avoid contamination from impurities. Once the desired amount of spirulina is reached in a pool, the water is poured across fine screens that separate the algae from the water. It is at this point that the process for Spirulina Crunchies becomes unique. Usually the algae would be dried at high temperatures and powdered or even spray dried. Instead, our spirulina is ground into a paste and is then pressed into little strands, like spaghetti. The strands are then gently air-dried at low temperatures. It is this simple but revolutionary process that creates the extraordinary crunch and flavor of Spirulina Crunchies.
