Nature's Superfood. The Green Gold. Beauty food. 

Many terms circulate to describe the power of spirulina. Justified? In our opinion: completely. Spirulina is the world's richest natural source of proteins (65%), vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Harvested correctly, it is one of the most powerful food sources on our planet.

Spirulina provides a solid boost to your health, it is an instant source of energy, a great supplement for athletes and helps with the treatment of diseases.

These natural microalgae have been growing on Earth for 3.6 billion years. Yet they are on the rise more than ever. Today Europeans also can enjoy the benefits of pure spirulina sprinkles from ALGO-RITME!

 

Why sprinkles?

Sprinkles are the most natural form of spirulina. They do not undergo any form of industrial processing such as powders or tablets.

Spirulina is one of the food supplements that - with good reason - can be called a superfood. Per gram, spirulina is the most nutritious food in the world!  For example, 'the green gold' is rich in proteins, it contains many vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and antioxidants. Impressive, for a plant-based food.

Tips & tricks

Ecological & sustainable

The cultivation of spirulina requires less water and less valuable land than producing other protein sources (e.g. meat, milk ...). We do not use pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Our green friends grow at their own natural rhythm. There is no production waste and they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. Nice bonus, right?

In addition, our sprinkles are fair trade and provide work to our Ghanaian colleagues in a region where very few jobs are available.

Pure and honest

Our goal is to deliver the purest spirulina of the very best quality. Our sprinkles are grown with care and dedication on our farm in Ghana. We work in an artisanal way with care for people and nature. We don't cut corners.

Tested for quality

Spirulina grows in a high alkaline environment with very high PH values, in which almost nothing else can grow. This makes the chance of contamination with other bacteria very small. 

The only exception? Microcystin, a substance that can survive in this type of environment. Fortunately, our basins are completely shielded, which means that contamination with microcystin is virtually zero. Testing for this is part of our QC procedure. 

More about our quality control.

Extra pure

If spirulina is grown in a polluted environment, it can absorb heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. That is why our farm is far away from civilization. The water that we use in our basins is additionally purified.

Like all other foods, spirulina is tested by independent laboratories for any possible contamination

People with autoimmune diseases. Due to the strengthening effect on the immune system, this can increase complaints in these patients. The use of spirulina is therefore not recommended for people with MS, SLE or pemphigus vulgaris.

Phenylketonuria (a rare and hereditary metabolic disease) patients are not recommended to use spirulina.
