It crunches between your teeth.
“Spirulina has been a part of our portfolio practically since Vitalvibe was born, because it’s an amazing superfood and one of the most complex food ever. A new form of crunchy and “spicy” spirulina represents a brand new level of how spirulina could taste.”

Its Life on a Farm.
A story of Spirulina begins in an organic farm in a region of Auroville, situated on the coast of South India. A specific sunny climate allows a singular way of production of a high-quality Spirulina by using methods of organic farming.
Spirulina is cultivated in shallow ponds in about 15 cm depth, its water is supplemented with nutrients (minerals and salt), which are forming optimal life conditions for this alga. A pond culture is mixed various times per day, so a process of photosynthesis was stimulated.
Spirulina, collected from water in the form of biomass, undergoes cleaning and filtration process. Then comes pressing, until it gets a paste form, which is consequently grounded to “spaghetti”. Those are dried on the sunshine, which takes just couple of hours in a local maritime climate. If you want a spicy taste algae, masala and chilli must be added before drying (Spirulina Crunchy Spicy). Finally, Spirulina is broken into smaller pieces and packed.
A Place of Origin Story.
Our Spirulina originates from an interesting place permeated with spiritual tradition. Auroville is an experimental township whose mission is mainly to promote human spiritual development and harmonic lifestyle. A large range of ecological technologies and alternative methods is applied there.
Also, a producer of Spirulina follows ethical values. This farm with more than twenty years tradition is based on practices beyond compliance in long-term sustainability and Fair-Trade principals. It employs mainly women from socially disadvantaged local communities. It looks after favourable and safe working conditions and a good salary for the employees.
This is Spirulina Crunchy.
Our Spirulina Crunchy, whose original native homeland is the Huacachina lake in Peru, comes from Spirulina Paracas culture. It presents one of first forms of life (around 3,6 mil. years ago) and it was used as a food source for Mexican and African culture.
It’s interesting primarily for its crunchy form and great taste, obtaining directly on the farm. We have it in our offer for two reasons: it’s tastier than its powder form and our co-owner Honza felt in love with at first taste.
Spirulina is used in salads, salty food or as a simple snack.
