Spirulina has received high attention and praise from scientists and international organizations around the world due to its comprehensive and balanced nutritional content and high disease prevention and health value. Nutritionists and medical experts call it the "nutrition champion of the earth" and the "new star of pharmaceutical sources". The World Health Organization regards spirulina as the "best health product of the 21st century" and the "future super-nutritional food"; UNESCO recommends spirulina as "the most ideal and perfect future food", and the Food and Agriculture Organization strongly recommends that "spirulina is the best food resource and future food".
Modern science recognizes the nutritional value of spirulina as a "trace nutrient bank", with the content of eight essential amino acids for the human body approaching or exceeding the standards of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. The ratio of protein, sugar, and fat is about 60:20:5, and the nutrition is balanced. In addition, it also contains a variety of vitamins and trace elements, with a β-carotene content of 4000 milligrams per kilogram, and a high vitamin content of 1320 milligrams per kilogram. Eating 15 grams of dry spirulina per day can ensure a necessary source of nutrition. Spirulina has the highest nutritional content and high safety, and is recognized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations as "the most ideal and best human food".
Safety evaluations conducted by the US Dietary Supplement Commission indicate that organic spirulina is safe and has no toxic side effects. Spirulina is widely used as a health product worldwide and is recommended by NASA and the European Space Agency as one of the main foods for long-term space mission personnel. Various pharmacological effects have been found, such as lowering blood lipids, antioxidation, anti-infection, and anticancer.
Organic spirulina powder can be used for food processing
A variety of foods have been developed using spirulina, all of which are made by adding spirulina powder or extract raw materials to conventional foods or beverages such as soy sauce, yogurt, jelly, drinks, and noodles.
Organic spirulina powder can be applied to nutrition science
The content of fatty acids in spirulina is relatively low, and a large proportion of beneficial unsaturated fatty acids for the human body is included. Spirulina is rich in multiple bioactive compounds, such as β-carotene, phycocyanin, γ-linolenic acid, and endogenous enzymes, which are very beneficial to human health.
Organic spirulina powder can be used as a feed additive
Spirulina is rich in protein and amino acids, and rich in various trace elements. It is widely used as a feed additive in animal feed.
Organic spirulina powder can be used as a bioenergy
Research has found that compared with other biological hydrogen materials, spirulina has the characteristics of high photosynthetic efficiency, fast growth and reproduction, high hydrogenase activity, and continuous hydrogen release time, making it one of the ideal materials for the study of biological hydrogen production.
Organic spirulina powder can be used in environmental protection
Spirulina needs to absorb and consume nitrogen, phosphorus and other nutrients in the water environment during its growth and reproduction process, and degrade organic matter in the water, with the characteristics of fast growth and reproduction, high photosynthetic efficiency, and strong adaptability. Using spirulina to cultivate wastewater can not only purify the water body and reduce the degree of eutrophication of the water body, but also obtain high value-added spirulina products.
