Spirulina powder is from a type of algae that is fast becoming one of the most fashionable food supplements, although it dates back to the Aztecs. It is rich in proteins (more than 50% of its composition), which provide eight essential amino acids of the type that the body cannot synthesise. Its unique composition has inspired the UN to declare Spirulina algae as “Basic food for cases of malnutrition”.
