In addition to its nutritious content of vitamins and minerals, spirulina is also rich in chlorophyll. In addition, 5-8% of the algae consists of omega-6 fatty acids. These fatty acids are needed, among other things, for our body to be able to build and repair cells. Chlorophyll is the substance that gives grass its green colour and also acts as plants' hemoglobin. Thanks to its high nutritional value, spirulina has been used by NASA in their space travel.

What does it mean when we say the product is EU-organic?
In organic food production, biodiversity, the conservation of natural resources, environmental practices and strict animal welfare are observed (1). In order for a product to be labeled as EU-organic, the label used within the EU, a product must meet strict conditions that apply to the entire production chain. The product must contain at least 95% organic ingredients, and in addition, the other 5% must meet other strict conditions (1).
In organic crop production, it is important to promote soil fertility and to allow for perennial crop rotation and a cycle of organic material. Therefore, fertilizers, compost and plant protection products should only be used if they comply with the principles and objectives of organic production. In general, the EU requires that an organic food must be produced without synthetically produced chemical pesticides and without artificial fertilizers. In organic production, genetic engineering is also prohibited. In addition, production should primarily rely on renewable resources (2).
