What is Spirulina Powder?

- Dec 16, 2019-

Spirulina powder is made from fresh spirulina by spray drying, sieving and sterilizing. Its fineness is generally above 80 mesh. Pure spirulina is pink and dark green, and it feels slippery to the touch. Spirulina without sieving or adding other substances will have a rough feel.

Spirulina is a lower class of plant, belonging to the Cyanophyta, Oscilinaceae. Like bacteria, they have no real nucleus in the cell, so they are also called cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria have a primitive cell structure and are very simple. They are the earliest photosynthetic organisms on the planet and have lived on this planet for 3.5 billion years. It grows in water, and its shape can be seen under a microscope as a spiral filament, hence its name. Generally, Spirulina platensis is widely used in health foods. Other Spirulina species include Spirulina maxima and Spirulina platensis. The protein content of Spirulina platensis is generally above 65%.


Spirulina can be divided into feed grade, food-grade, and special purpose according to different uses. Feed-grade spirulina powder is generally used in aquaculture and livestock breeding, and food-grade spirulina powder is used in health foods and added to other foods for human consumption.
