Spirulina is a perfectly spiral-shaped blue-green microalga. From a biological standpoint, it is one of the most ancient inhabitants of our planet, and it represents the evolutionary bridge between bacteria and plants. Because of its high nutritional value in terms of concentration of proteins, vitamins, antioxidants, omega 6, omega 3, minerals, essential amino acids and other nutrients, it has been a fundamental food for many civilizations in Africa, the Middle East and in the Americas since ancient times. It is also an important, eco sustainable resource for the future of our planet.

Spirulina Algae is liquid, solid, or powder.
It is the most powerful and well-balanced food resource available on our planet. It is a source of energy and protein while also rich in iron and low in fat.

It represents the perfect union between tradition and innovation.
Spirulina as superfood
Spirulina is a cyanobacterion which is capable of transforming the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere into oxygen and nutrients. Spread out over the same area, it produces 20 times more oxygen than a forest. It contains 18 amino acids, in the exact same proportion as in mother’s milk, including all 8 “essential” amino acids; it contains 30 times more protein than soy, 40 times more than wheat, and 300 times more than beef. It has 65 times more iron than spinach, 10 times more beta-carotene than carrots, and a very high concentrate of anti oxidants.
As little as 6 grams of Spirulina are equivalent to:

A strain of Spirulina was selected thanks to its unique qualities in terms of nutritional values and its high capability to adapt to its environment.
The strain underwent a thorough genomic analysis for DNA mapping, which, through the “DNA Certified” protocol, allows the company to guarantee the costumer very high quality of a product that is unique, traceable, and impossible to counterfeit; a product that only Severino Becagli proudly offers in the whole world, and that is entirely “made in Tuscany”.
