Spirulina is one of nature's most nutrition-dense foods, rich not only in protein but also calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, magnesium, selenium, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, Vitamins B-6, K and E, as well as various phytonutrients. Superfood, indeed.
The spirulina in our Spirulina Sprinkles comes from France, where it is farmed in controlled greenhouses (not open ponds), which guarantees unbeatable quality and taste.
