How to recognize good quality spirulina?

Very popular for several years, the purchase of spirulina must be done with the greatest caution. Indeed, many players are taking advantage of this craze to offer very poor quality spirulina, or even algae that look like spirulina but are not, and the consumption of which can be very dangerous for your health.

1. Information on the composition of the product

The terms “ spirulina ”, “spirulina”, “spirulina cyanophycea algae”, “Spirulina platensis” or “Arthrospira platensis” must be written on the label and thus guarantee the quality of the product. The level of spirulina in the tablets must be greater than 98% and the product must not contain any preservatives or colorings. Granular or powder forms must have a 100% spirulina content.

2. Visual appearance of good spirulina

The spirulina should have a beautiful dark green and matte color .
A bright color indicates that the spirulina has been crushed, compacted and covered with a layer of binder to prevent it from falling apart again.
The packaging should contain little dust. The presence of dust also indicates that the spirulina has been atomized and then compacted, thus losing some of its nutritional qualities.

3. Smell of good spirulina

This algae certainly has a particular smell, but it should not be unpleasant. An odor that is too strong indicates that the rate of oxidation is high and that the product is degraded.

4. Dissolution

The dissolution rate of spirulina must be:
nor too fast , so that the product passes through the stomach and releases its active ingredients in the intestine, where they can be absorbed by our body
nor too slow , because in this case, the product will only be poorly absorbed during its digestive journey. The nutrients contained in the product will be absorbed by our body in smaller quantities.

For an effect on health, it is therefore important to choose a good spirulina.

5. Digestion of Spirulina

In the first few days, spirulina can in rare cases cause slight gas. This is why it is advisable to proceed with a progressive dosage of the product. The presence of excessive gases, on the other hand, is generally an indication of a product of inferior quality or degraded.
