is a blue-green vegetable micro-algae
found in the highly alkaline lakes of Africa and Maxico. The natives of
these places have been using Spirulina as part of their diet for centuries.
Today, Spirulina cultivation is becoming a world-wide phenomena owing
to its extraordinary nutritional qualities. The various considerations
that highlight the importance of Spirulina under present day context are:
- The only single,
natural source providing the highest amount of
protein ever known to man is spirulina which
contains 71% protein. The protein content in
spirulina is three times that of soybean, five
times that of meat, and the protein quality is
among the best with a good degree of aminogram.
The protein yield per unit area per year is the
highest compared to other protein yielding crops.
- Like all other
microbial cells, Spirulina contains all natural
vitamins including the 'B' complex range,
minerals and growth factors including
gram-linolenic acid (highest after milk and
evening prime rose oil ). It contains
the highest amount of b -carotene a precursor of
Vitamin 'A'. It is the only vegetable source of
vitamin 'B12' containing two and half times that
- The concentration of
nucleic acids is among the lowest recorded for
microbial cells considered as food or feed.
- The other micro
organisms including those pathogenic to humans
and other animals are eliminated in the
production process of spirulina due to its
requirement of a very high alkaline growth
preference for tropic and sub tropic climatic
conditions offers a best land use in arid areas.
FOOD SUPPLEMENT -The
World Health Organisation has found Spirulina to be an excellent food
for human consumption and Spirulina has the approval of the Food &
Drugs Authority of the United States for being sold as a natural food.
In Japan and in the United States, business executives take spirulina
tablets to combat stress. Athletes and joggers take spirulina for quick
