Take your smoothies, sauces, and more, to the next level with Gandalf Spirulina™, nature’s original superfood.

What do you get when you combine one of the planet’s oldest living organisms, the power of the sun and an unmatched dedication to purity? Gandalf Spirulina™, nature’s original superfood. Adding it into the culinary mix puts a long list of nutritional benefits at your fingertips. Rich in beta carotene, nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, Spirulina has existed for more than three billion years. In fact, it’s one of the oldest living organisms on earth, and considered by some, to be nature’s original superfood.

This blue-green algae helps maintain eyesight, skin, membranes and immune function, and helps in the development and maintenance of bones, teeth and night vision. It also helps with the formation and proper function of red blood cells, while building and repairing body tissues, contributing to the overall maintenance of good health.

Gandalf Spirulina™ is unique in that it’s harvested and dried through a unique process called Ocean Chill™, which removes oxygen to protect beta carotene from oxidizing, preserving its purity and integrity. It comes to you as nature intended. Armed with this knowledge, blending in some imagination, and of course a dash or two of Gandalf Spirulina™, we’ve put together some simple and delicious recipes to inspire your creativity, and get you started with Gandalf Spirulina™.
