Spirulina – only a modern or useful superfood? It is a microscopic spiral thread of blue-green unicellular algae growing in fresh water and alkaline environment. It can be bought in capsules in the form of food supplements, in packets of dry powder or liquid fresh spirulina in a jar.

It is naturally a gluten-free food, rich in complete plant protein – this makes it a valuable ingredient in a balanced vegan gluten-free diet. Spirulina is also rich in chlorophyll, iron, sulfur, beta-carotene, gammalinolenic acid / GLA /, antioxidants – this is a good reason to be present in our daily menu. I buy dry organic spirulina powder in packets and when I add it to recipes I just weigh the amount I need. I use it in the preparation of smoothies, desserts and sauces. It has a deep green color and a specific aroma of algae that I don’t particularly like. That is why I combine spirulina with mint leaves, fennel seeds or fennel leaves – this way I keep its color, but its specific aroma is not felt.
