Here Are some details on our Certified Organic Spirulina
Spirulina has been consumed as a food for centuries, with ancient cultures in South America and Africa using spirulina for its amazing therapeutic properties and dense nutrient content. Recently spirulina has been termed the richest, most nutritious super food known to man and a September 2005 issue of AARP Magazine listed spirulina as the number one food to add years to your life.
Spirulina is arguably nature’s most powerful green food. With over 60% Protein content, Spirulina is the highest, most digestible source of “complete” protein. Spirulina is also the source of several important phytonutrients like Carotenoids; Essential Fatty Acids like Gamma Linolenic Acid; Vitamin B12 which is not found in any other green food; trace minerals such as Iron, Magnesium, Calcium and Selenium; Sulpholipids and the antioxidant enzyme Superoxide dismutase (SOD) all of which are in a bio-available form.This ability of being easily digested and assimilated is due to spirulina’s lack of cell wall. Most remarkably spirulina is the highest source for phytopigments like Phycocyanin, Beta-carotene, Zeaxanthin and other plant pigments that define green foods like Chlorophyll, making spirulina the most cost effective of green foods.
Parry Nutraceuticals’ Organic Spirulina certification under USDA NOP is based on the USDA – NOP standards October 2005, which restricts use of Chilean nitrate as the Nitrogen source. Parry uses a vegetarian source of Nitrogen and Phosphorous for Organic Spirulina cultivation. Parry Nutraceuticals also has received declaration from the certifying bodies – IMO, Switzerland & Naturland, Germany – to this effect.
Parry Nuetraceuticals Ceriified Organic Spirulina is grown twenty miles away from the historic town of Pudukottai in South India at Oonaiyur.
The temperature here is extremely conducive. We grow our microalgae across one hundred and thirty acres of land in a remote hamlet where there is no ground water contamination. Most importantly, there is no other agricultural activity in this area, so the possibility of artificial fertilizer / pesticide contamination too does not exist.
