miracle food

Spirulina, a blue-green, protein-packed algae, was labelled a "wonderful future food source" 45 years ago by the International Association of Microbiology.

"It's as close as we will get to a miracle food" says Mahamat Sorto, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.
An easily digestible high ( 60-70 percent) protein product with high levels of B-carotene, vitamin B12, iron and trace minerals, and the rare essential fatty acid y-linolenic acid (also called omega-6).spirulina cultivation has a small environmental footprint with low water needs, production could take place in salty conditions that would kill other crops, and there are no obvious negative cultural or religious issues associated with its consumption.
