100% pure spirulina dehydrated at ambient temperatures (< 42 °C) with no additives. Fair trade production; free from pesticides and phytochemicals. "Gourmet Spirulina dehydrated spirulina petals/nibs/crunchies must be differentiated from non-culinary product given the wide differences in the manufacturing process, the final product and its possible uses. Our spirulina petals/nibs/crunchies are produced with 100% pure spirulina. Although they differ in shape and format, they are simply differentiated during the drying process and are fundamentally the exact same product, except for a slight variation in taste due to slightly different growing conditions, most notably humidity during the drying process, solar irradiation, and mineral content of the water (a terroir in the proper sense). The process behind our culinary spirulinas is the same however: when the microscopic algae spirulina is harvested, the microsopic spiral-shaped organisms intertwine and form a purée of biomass which is then pressed to extract the water medium. This biomass is then extruded and, to obtain culinary spirulina, we then spread it as sheets before dehydration to produce petals, long twines to obtain nibs, and short twines to produce crunchies. To better preserve spirulina's natural good taste, we simply dry the spirulina at quasi-ambient temperatures (under 42°C) under low humidity levels, a process which takes a few hours.
