How Lithuanian Spirulina is grown
Lithuanian Spirulina is grown in closed bioreactors, where there is no direct contact with the environment. This is very important because Spirulina tends to accumulate heavy metals. In China, India or other countries, spirulina is grown in open water where it has direct contact with the environment. And claims that spirulina is grown there in a clean environment are simply ridiculous – knowing that this is one of the most polluted countries on the planet. Spirulina is grown in a completely different way in Lithuania.
Spirulina is grown in a medium that mimics sea water. The process of growing Spirulina takes about 4 weeks. When Spirulina grows naturally, some of its valuable organic and mineral substances are poorly absorbed, so the environment in our bioreactor is enriched with essential trace elements that help the human body absorb all the valuable substances of Spirulina.
The vast majority of Spirulina growers use various mechanisms to increase productivity. However, there is one very simple reason why the quality of Spirulina suffers from this – there is no cellulose in the cell of Spirulina, and it is very easy to damage it. When growing, harvesting, filtering, we use exclusively manual labor, which guarantees the highest quality of Spirulina.
Fructose was chosen as a preservative because it is a monosaccharide that does not raise blood sugar levels, and therefore the product can be used by people with diabetes. About 13% of fructose is used for energy needs of the body, and most of it is stored as glycogen in the liver and can be used during hard work, adaptation and prolonged stress. Fructose has a tonic effect, so it is recommended for athletes, drivers and everyone who experiences heavy loads.
Fresh liquid Spirulina is a unique product
The Bioactive product line is a combination of natural fresh Spirulina platensis biomass and fructose. Studies have shown that fresh liquid Spirulina is up to 10 times more effective than dried spirulina, which is why we are pleased to offer the market an exclusive product. Unlike dried spirulina products, nearly all of the nutritional benefits of blue green algae are retained. Such a product can only be offered by a spirulina manufacturer, because due to the relatively short life of the biomass, it is impossible to transport it for processing elsewhere.
Spirulina grown in Lithuania is characterized by exceptionally high quality and composition. Cellulose is absent in the cell walls of the blue-green algae Spirulina platensis, which leads to a very good absorption of algae biomass (up to 98 percent). Spirulina is not only a rich source of vitamins and microelements, but also increases the absorption of the latter, acts as a catalyst for the absorption of certain substances, a prebiotic.
