Spirulina is 386 times more water efficient than beef (290 L of water vs 112,000 L of water per kg of protein).
Each spirulina bioreactor consumes the same amount of CO2 as a small tree. Our commercial farm consumes as much CO2 as a forest of 3000 trees!
EnerGaia strives to bring spirulina farming to low-income rural communities to create new livelihoods while bringing nutritional benefits. We have worked on projects in 4 countries with the Gates Foundation, USAID, Winrock and WWF.
Spirulina contains 18 amino acids including all 9 essential amino acids. As a bonus, it also adds a lot of vitamins (A, B-complex, E, K) and minerals (Iron, Magnesium, Zinc) to naturally fortify your food products
Our spirulina will add a beautiful green color to your food product showing that it contains plant-based goodness, without adding any bad smell or flavor
Our spirulina is free from milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybeans and sesame
Can replace eggs in baked goods; adds creaminess to beverages; adds binding and HEME in meat substitutes; naturally fortifies foods replacing many chemical fortification ingredients
We offer spirulina in two easy-to-use forms for manufacturers: fresh-frozen raw spirulina that can mix well into beverages, ice creams, yogurts, or doughs for baked items; and freeze-dried powder that is highly soluble and perfect for powder mixes, meat substitutes and other dry products
Spirulina uses less than 0.1% of the water than other major proteins, consumes CO2 and produces O2, and does not require arable farmland to grow
Spirulina adds creaminess and fortifying nutrients to smoothies, plant-based dairy and other RTD beverages
Spirulina can replace eggs in baking recipes
Spirulina adds protein, vitamins and minerals to Japanese ramen, udon, shirataki and other forms of noodles
Spirulina acts as a binder and even contains HEME as well as protein, Iron plus other vitamins and minerals
Spirulina acts as a binder and adds protein, vitamins and minerals to fresh and dry wheat or gluten free pastas in any shape such as linguini, fusilli, penne, spaghetti, etc
Spirulina is a natural source of protein and many fortifying vitamins and minerals to make snacks healthier
Unlike most other spirulina producers who use open ponds, we use our proprietary system of closed bioreactors to grow spirulina in order to prevent any risk of airborne contamination. This allows us to produce the cleanest, best tasting and best smelling spirulina on the planet.
